I’ve been reading Traditional Home for centuries and just about always find a room that I love within it’s pages. The April issue is no exception. Here’s the room:
Oops! This is the “Before” shot.
Here’s the “After.”
The color on the walls is brave and perfect. I looked for the name of that orange in the Resource pages, but it was a custom color. However, Sherwin Williams’ Robust Orange/6628, is a similar rich hue. Benjamin Moore’s Corlsbud Canyon/076 is another delicious, saturated orange. Blue is the complementary color to orange, so the huge vase of delphiniums on the table was a brilliant stroke. The chandelier, the window treatments, the clean lines on the upholstered pieces–so well done. This room is filled with many details that add up to great design and a space that I’d feel very comfortable and downright happy in. While this is a very traditional room, the use of color and fabric give it a gorgeous update. Gerald Pomeroy of Boston did the interior design and the photographer is Francesco Lagnese.
There was another good “before” and “after” in the magazine.
The bathroom before
Lots of good ideas in this photo, don’t you think? Also by Gerald Pomeroy Design Group.
I hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend.
I’m totally cheating this week. There’s a LOT on my plate (all good stuff, but lots of it), so I’m just going to find photos that I’ve tucked away in a file and post them nilly willy.
This lovely room was designed by David Scott. He says the addition of the fireplace made the room cozy. I’ll say. Where would you want to be–on the chaise or on the bed?
David Scott design, again. This is such a fantastic example of how one bold print can transform a room. I think this room is quiet and calm in it’s monchromatic glory, but those drapes make it come alive in such a nice way. I like that lamp over on the left. Not too many people would think to put a table lamp in the dining room, but wouldn’t it be nice to have that on at night when you don’t need the chandelier? More coziness. The wall treatment is cool, too. Will have to check that out further to see exactly what it is. I think these pictures came from the Decorati site. I just checked–yes they do. They’ve done a profile on Mr. Scott with these pictures of his work and much more. Take a look and enjoy his work.
Have a great week!
