I don't normally like this kind of green/brown coloration - too autumnal perhaps - but this room meets the personal standards I set out in the previous post. It is contemporary, tailored, spacious, sensual - almost purringly svelte. The color palette is gratifyingly multi-tonal and I feel the room would look equally handsome photographed in black and white or in sepia. I understand from the text that the designer chose 15 tones to use on the walls throughout the house - 15 out of a possible 250. In a world where one shade of white, or perhaps a "neutral" is the norm it is refreshing to see an such a cerebral response to color. This isn't the basic color theory!
The rugs made by V'Soske and designed by Kay Hollar as was much of the furniture. There are the present-day investment pieces, whether in terms of money, social standing or both: Robsjohn-Gibbings, Vladimir Kagan, Alvar Aalto. The usual suspects you might say, but they work together beautifully with the artwork, the clean-lined large-scale upholstery and with the architecture.
The photographer was Richard Powers.
