Fabulous Room Friday 01.25.13

While I’ve always had a penchant for glamour, I have been majorly crushing on the ultra sexy, masculine meets feminine brand of 1970s glam as of late and this spectacular dining/living area designed by Nate Berkus is the perfect embodiment of that look. The show-stopping Martinique wallpaper (explored by Lindsay in this “Style Spotting” earlier this week) is the perfect foundation for the space—lush and evocative of the Beverly Hills Hotel which always equals glamour in my book. The rest of the space, which happens to be shoe designer, Brian Atwood’s apartment in Milan, is punctuated with amazing pieces which are showstoppers on their own, but even more so in harmony in one space as they are here. How insane are the brass table and vintage black leather and brass Pace chairs?

In the living area, Nate selected a fabulous vintage Arredoluce Triennale floor lamp, mirrored coffee table, and vintage Pedro Friedeberg hand chair, which Erika delved into in this installment of “Design Under the Influence”. The floor to ceiling mirrored walls lend an airy quality to the space and maximize the presence of the wall swathed in the Martinique wallpaper.

There are even more fabulous pieces in this corner of the room, my favorite being the brass and glass desk. This room is ultra chic and sexy. It brings to mind Lauren Hutton, Bianca Jagger, Halston, Studio 54 and everything else that was the epitome of glamorous style in the 1970s.

What is your favorite element in this space? Bon weekend!

That Martinique wallpaper is to die for! I haven't seen it done in this ultra sexy way and am totally in love with it still. Gosh, I'd say my fav element about this space would be a tie between the wallpaper and that fabulously glamorous glass & brass desk. Thanks for sharing this sexy space! Have a great weekend!
