Fabulous Room Friday 05.23.14

This week, I stumbled across this beautiful New York living room designed by one of my favorite designers, Timothy Whealon. I remember this feature well from when it ran in Veranda in October 2010 (P.S. How does time keep flying by so fast?), but it really resonated with me this week. I love the fresh color palette, mix of furniture styles, and the impact of unexpected elements like the huge centipede photograph by Fernando Laszlo. The gilded Eric Appel lamps provide a great contrast to the antique chandelier while the over-scaled pattern of the custom rug provides a fabulous focal point. The combination of these elements makes the room striking and completely unforgettable.

I love when a larger room has separate, distinct seating areas. Every piece in the room is of distinguished provenance, yet the mix feels relaxed and inviting, which is no small feat. It looks like the perfect place to spend part of the long, Memorial Day Weekend, doesn’t it?

I love the color palette in this room too! It's not that often that designers try or succeed in attempting purple -- but I think it is heavenly here.

Gorgeous room but I must admit the artwork would have to go!

What a beautiful room. I love the color of the curtains. Similar to a pair I just purchased for a lavender room.
