Yes, I have been published in a few notable publications. Maybe you have heard of them? Architectural Digest; Elle Decor; Dwell; Derring Hall; and many more.

Many decades ago, I was born Aaron Bradford Duke in the cultural wasteland of Garland, Texas. For those of you wondering where the heck that falls on the map, it is just a stone's throw away from Dallas.
In an era long before the Internet made its way to the palm of your hands, my playgrounds of curiosity, exploration, and discovery were the worlds of art, dance, design, fashion, travel, theatre, and my imagination. I found inspiration in magazines, books, and newspapers of a well-lived life more exciting than my hometown.

My unique marriage of a vivid imagination and well-traveled European perspective gives your home a highly globalized aesthetic. I always find a way of interjecting a touch of humor. Have a laugh. These statement rooms allow you to fully express your individuality and give your friends and family permission to live comfortably.
Your inventive design will flow seamlessly from the exterior to the inside creating harmony. Aaron balances exclusivity with accessibility in his highly globalized statement rooms incorporating his love of history, architecture, fine art, fashion, exquisite food, and a romantic ideal of life.
Inherently, I am intrigued by your unique qualities, value your genuine relationship, confidently take command of your project, strategically chose a path to move you toward your end result, and take pleasure in making decisions and taking intentional action to get ‘er done.
My natural commanding presence with a strong personal style – always in my signature boots -
If you desire a home unlike any other, then you will be drawn to my distinctive brand of eccentric cool.
What is eccentric cool, you ask? Simply, it is living authentically, standing in your truth, and unapologetically being you. As the French would say, je ne sais quoi. You can’t quite put your finger on it, but you know it when you see it, touch it, taste it, feel it, or smell it.
