Fabulous Room Friday 04.15.2011


Cathy Echols’ “salon” as she affectionately calls this room, is one of my favorite spaces that we’ve published in High Gloss Magazine so far. Cathy refers to the room as a salon in a tongue in cheek way as she knows the word can sound a bit over the top. However, she uses this space to entertain friends and mix a cocktail or two, so she chooses the to call it a salon in the most fun way. I adore the David Hicks La Fiorentina fabric used for the skirted table and pelmet box. Add to that magenta-colored shelves, antique mirrors, a Chippendale chair, a bronze horse head sculpture with the perfect patina, gold lamps and I am in heaven. It really is a fun room with a sense of style, sense of humor and so much character. Hands down, it is one of my favorite rooms from our second issue.


{Isn’t it clever to use a skirted table as a bar? I know a lot of you said you loved this when you saw it in High Gloss.}


Whatever you’re up to this weekend, I hope it’s fantastic. Happy Friday!
