Fields's windows are tailored with the fine taste of a bespoke suit, with crisp and precise lengths of good silk constructed with dressmakers' details. However, they're not so decorous that they go unnoticed. In her own home, for instance, she uses buttercup yellow and a raspberry rose.
Fields admits that she returns to favorite colors when decorating her own spaces. For instance, she loves French blue in a bedroom—her headboard is covered in blue leather and she prizes a pair of painted urns detailed with the same shade—but for clients she's willing to work in almost any color. "Almost," she says with a smile.
An avid art collector, Fields has amassed a trove of paintings that are also all about color. One favorite depicts a simple bowl of lemons; another Charleston, S.C.'s Rainbow Row of townhouses, famous for their many-hued facades. Admiring them, she says, "I simply don't view the world in black and white."
