Cynthia Rowley's Manhattan Oasis

Cynthia Rowley's home is as feminine, original, and beautiful as her designs. Her awe-inspiring dining room (pictured above) is my favorite room in the house. It looks so ethereal, as if it were straight out of a fairy tale. The gorgeous, metallic wallpaper was designed by Rowley and produced by Flavor Paper. The chairs and banquette are covered in fabric by Cole and Son.

Rowley, her husband, and eldest daughter, Kit

The loveliness of the dining room can only be surpassed by Rowley's precious daughter, Gigi.

The living room plays host to Rowley's drawings above the mantel, a zebra print rug, re-upholstered flea market chairs, and a screen with a clover motif reminiscent of Van Cleef and Arpels.

The whimsical master bath hosts a venetian mirror, sleek mosaic tile, and waterproof (naturally) wallpaper of Rowley's design.

The mid-century chaise lounges in the garden are covered in fabric from Lee Jofa.

Your settee is a great piece, but I think you need a beefier piece there. I love the idea of a daybed, so versatile and pretty from every direction. Love the upholstered selections in your post. Good luck!
