My Favorite Room: Hallie Henley

Hallie 1

Since my husband and I are currently in an apartment, it was easy to pick my favorite room. We spend the majority of our time in our living area and dining area that are open to one another. We eat, entertain, study (my husband is getting close to finishing law school) and most importantly, relax in here! The photo above shows our entry looking towards the dining area. The lucite stool was found at an estate sale and is covered in Brunschwig & Fils' Chevron Bar Silk Warp Print and the two photographs are by past Savannah College of Art & Design graduates.

This is a view of how our dining area usually looks. The folding screen was purchased at Antique Avenue in Oklahoma City, and I repainted it dove grey and white. The set of four black & white etchings was purchased at one of my favorite antique stores in San Francisco, Past Perfect. I framed them in Pottery Barn's black gallery frames.

This is a close up of my lucite chandelier- a recent find from The Guild Shop in Houston.

A close up of the place setting. I love using hot pink roses (or peonies) for the centerpiece with our salad plate- Herend's Queen Victoria pattern.

This is a view of our living room where many a movie have been watched!

I've reupholstered my lucite ottoman in Christopher Farr Cloth's outdoor Belfour pattern. I've realized how great outdoor fabrics are when you have a messy husband! The brass side table is from Peddler Jim's Antiques in Savannah. I squeezed it home in my suitcase on a recent trip to Georgia!

This is a close up view of my collection of gold and white pottery from Jonathan Adler and Waylande Gregory. The gold and white cigar ashtray was my grandfather's.

We love to use this chest as an impromptu bar when we entertain. It's so easy to set up with a bit of ice and glassware!

This is a close up view of monogrammed cocktail napkins from The Monogram Market in Houston. The monogram was designed by Number Four Eleven in Savannah. You can also see my almost empty bottle of St. Germain liqueur in the background...perfect for cocktails!


Hey, everyone! This is Paloma. Isn’t Hallie’s favorite space fabulous? Hallie is one of the chicest people I know which is clearly reflected in every square inch of her home. I posted a tour of her stylish home a couple of years ago, so if you’d like to see more of Hallie’s stunning home, click here.

Gorgeous space! Love all of the details. I am in love with the lucite coffee table with the upholstered cushion.



Wendy said...

Fabulous space!!! Love the mix of old and new.

Absolutely love seeing how Hallie's space has evolved. And I agree- it's just as chic as she is!

It is such a homey, restful place. You have done a great job putting it all together. I had a question about your orchid plant in the room, I want one for my fireplace mantelpiece - do you use fresh orchids or silk ones? Are there any companies you'd recommend with silk flowers? I do not mind paying a little more if they look realistic enough. Thank you!

Lauren @ The Semi-Designed Life said...

What a beautiful space, Hallie!! It's hard to make an apartment look so chic. You've definitely pulled it off. Your complex should use your apartment as a show house. :)

See you tonight, Paloma!

STUNNING! Especially loving that ottoman. So great!

Some of the best everyday, real people styling I've seen in a long time. The coffee table vignette is FAB.

Unknown said...

What a beautiful apartment! The touches pull your eye around the entire space and go from black to white, to spots of color! So beautifully curated. Thanks for passing on Hallie's talents.

I recognized this space immediately. I loved it the first time you posted it a few years back. I ended up posting about it too. Love the changes she's made. Her China is so pretty and special.

Chic Geek said...

This space is amazing and her jute rugs are exactly what I'm looking for- not too thick. Is there a source on those? Pretty please ;)

Unknown said...

So beautiful! Love the hints of gold and how the bright colors are woven into the mix.

I adore this space!!! Somehow, this couple made a way to make a semi-small face beautiful and functional. Love the color scheme and the play with transparency.

Great site!
