April's issue of the English House and Garden magazine caught my eye today. A feature spread showcasing an upper east side apartment designed by Jeffrey Bilhuber was especially delicious. He uses a Peter Fasano print that I've wanted to use for time. It shows up on the drapery and on a crescent-shaped sofa. The colors are khaki with some Russian blue upholstery fabric and two chairs in lavender! The rugs appear to be chartreuse. Genius! Whenever I see color combinations like this I get jealous. None of my clients would ever be so daring! The antique elements juxtaposed with the contemporary colors make the room just that much more intriguing. I especially love the sconces and the two matching antique consoles with mirrors above. Double click on all the pictures to see them larger and more clearly.
The dining room features another favorite of mine: De Gournay wallpaper. This is a popular pattern that I adore and hope to be able to place for a client one day. This picture from their web site shows 3 colorways from their Panoramic collection. Devine, votre ne pensent pas ?
