How would you describe your personal style and how do you think this space reflects that?
I think my personal style is warm and inviting, but also erring on the minimal side. I despise clutter or too much of anything - makes me feel heavy. I don’t over accessorize when I get dressed and I certainly don’t want too many knick knacks in my home. Less is more.
What kind of vibe and style did you want to create in this room? What did you want this room to function as?
I already have a comfortable family room where the kids and I watch TV. It is very livable. It’s where we spend most of our time as a family. It’s more durable (I have two boys!) and the hues are greys and blues. For this new space, I really wanted a more elevated, glamorous, more sophisticated room that felt more adult.
What are your favorite things about the space now?
Firstly, Laurel & Wolf was fantastic in making good use of the space in this room. They helped me figure out a more efficient plan for the furniture and created a very inviting space for entertaining. I’m obsessed with the chairs from Lawson and Fenning. I had been eyeing them for some time so I’m ecstatic we found a way to incorporate them. Kimberly suggested reupholstering my chaise lounge in blush velvet. It’s divine. I can’t seem to keep my dog Scarlett off of it, but she’s always had impeccable taste, so it makes sense.
How do you spend time in this room?
Since the room has been finished we’ve been migrating there when company comes over. We’ve sipped a few glasses of champagne. So far, it’s been a room to converse in, mostly. It doesn’t elicit being on your phone. It elicits a true feeling of “visiting” with other humans. Score!
How do your sons feel about the room?
Surprisingly, they’re very impressed. My oldest son Austin said that now I need to upgrade every room in the house. Ha!
What were a few design elements you absolutely had to have?
Firstly, I wanted a more intimate arrangement of furniture that was conducive to visiting with guests when I entertain. The room had felt "undone" for a long time with not enough seating. I also wanted to mute the color scheme quite a bit and get away from the masculine feel. I was also craving wallpaper with an art deco vibe. I travel a lot and pay close attention to hotel design for inspiration. Claridge's London inspired this room in some ways.
What was the space like before? How does it make you feel now?
The space before was simple and sleek which I like, but just too casual. It felt like just another living space that wasn't differentiated in any way. It was the room we never used. Now it is luxurious, inviting and warm but with a sexiness about it. The lucite and brass bar cart, blush-colored chaise lounge, and female-centric art are my favorite touches!
