Fabulous Room Friday 10.28.11

The November 2011 issue of ELLE DÉCOR is one of my favorites in recent memory. It is filled with grand, glamorous, colorful spaces including the living room pictured above. At only 1,300 square feet, the apartment of Claiborne Swanson Frank and her husband, James Frank isn’t enormous in size, but the chic style in which it is decorated makes it seem larger than life. I love the way in which they embraced color and pattern. In the living room alone, you have leopard, Greek key, ikat, and malachite. The airy space feels stylish and young with a polished twist. I have to say, Claiborne’s sense of style does not come as a surprise. I had the pleasure of meeting her mother, Elizabeth at the family’s Swanson Vineyards in Napa Valley last year. She is beautiful, kind, and slightly eccentric in the most fabulous way and it is clear that all of her beautiful daughters (Claiborne, Alexis, and Veronica) have inherited her panache and innate sense of style.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Wow 1,300 sf you definitely can't tell. I love the mix of patterns and colors in this room from the blue & white ikat to the leopard stool to the light yellow greek key rug. Fun fun!
