It's been a while since I wrote about a fascinating 1930's home decor. Every once in a while a gem like this falls into my sight (roaming the Web, it might happen). This glamour-home came from the pages of Architectural digest online edition.
The living room, refurbished to reflect its 1940s William Haines design,
features a sectional sofa upholstered in mohair,
and a Tony Duquette table lamp (one of a pair);
the cocktail table and ottoman, the latter clad in an Old World Weavers fabric,
are both by Formations.
Walls finished in a vibrant marmorino plaster add punch to the dining room;
the crystal chandelier and faux coral branches are from JF Chen,
and the sconces are by Formations.
In the breakfast area,
a light fixture by Waldo’s Designs hangs above an Alma Allen walnut table
and a suite of 19th-century Spanish dining chairs;
the Belgian iron side table and the pair of armchairs are from Lucca Antiques.
The kitchen cabinetry is painted in Benjamin Moore’s Enchanted Forest;
the pendant lamps are all by Paul Ferrante,
the range is by Wolf, and the sink fittings are by Perrin & Rowe.
The walls of the sitting room were stenciled by Valle;
the barstools are vintage French,
and the framed snapshot, which depicts the same interior,
was taken by one of the home’s previous owners,
the photographer and legendary hostess Jean Howard.
Decorative painter Nic Valle ornamented Dinah’s study with a trellis motif;
the desk and upholstered chair are by Restoration Hardware,
and the table lamp is from JF Chen.
The hallway’s Arts and Crafts bench is from Blackman Cruz.
The master suite is furnished with
a George Smith button-tufted bench in an Osborne & Little fabric;
the embroidered bolster pillow on the bed is from Hollywood at Home,
the curtains are made of a Lee Jofa linen,
and the carpet is by Tai Ping.
Ann Sacks tiles distinguish the master bath,
where a pair of Lefroy Brooks console sinks flank a Waterworks tub;
the fittings are also all by Lefroy Brooks.
Vintage chairs and chaise longues line the pool.
Landscape designer Matthew Brown created the parterre.
Absolute beauty, I dare say.
Do you like it? How about a vintage party, since this house is used to be filled with elaborate guests.
