Turning Personal Passion into a Business

Its story begins with Lydia's lifelong fascination with the world of design. From an early age, she found herself captivated by the interplay of colors, textures, and furnishings that turned houses into homes. Beginning her professional career as an electrical engineer, Lydia’s penchant for designing spaces in her own home was the personal hobby that started a nearly three-decade career in interior design. In 1992, armed with a keen eye for design and an unyielding commitment to quality, she transitioned from her career as an engineer to interior designer and opened Lydia Baker Interiors, which transformed into Patrick Street Interiors over the next two decades.

She ensures that the final design not only meets aesthetic expectations but also feels like an authentic reflection of the client's lifestyle. This personalized approach has not only earned Patrick Street Interiors a loyal client base but has also resulted in numerous accolades and industry recognition. Lydia’s designs are featured in the Baltimore Sun, Washington Post, Carroll County Times, and Better Homes & Gardens.

Farrow & Ball's new Dead Flat Finish

All-new Dead Flat is the most matte finish from Farrow & Ball, creating a richer colour from every angle. Suitable for walls, woodwork and metal, this multi-surface emulsion can be used on skirting, paneling or even radiators, for an effortless, colour-drenched transformation with just one finish. It’s exceptional coverage and low splatter makes application quick and easy too. Scrubbable and scuff-resistant, Dead Flat creates beautiful spaces that stay beautiful. Plus the water based formula is toy safe* with only trace VOCs and, like all Farrow & Ball finishes, handcrafted in Dorset. Quite simply, this is paint perfected

Ultra Matte Finish

With the most matte finish of any of Farrow & Ball’s products, the new Dead Flat has created a new standard for all matte finishes. With a 2% sheen and richer, deeper colour at all viewing angles, no other paint on the market can boast the velvety, flat look that the new Dead Flat achieves.

Multi-Surface Application

Now any surface in your home can benefit from the beautiful rich tones of Dead Flat. Formulated to be used on a variety of materials, it can be applied to walls, woodwork, and even radiators.

Unbeatable Durability

Most matte finishes are easily damaged and hard to clean, but Farrow & Ball’s new Dead Flat is not only beautiful, it is extremely durable. It’s scuff-resistant, scrubbable, wipeable and washable. Great for hallways and high traffic areas, this new durable finish will continue to look beautiful years longer than any other matte paint on the market.
