While everyone was watching the Oscars last night I was dissecting the decor in the Architectural Digest Greenroom. Not sure what this says about me, but you can form your own opinions.
I know Art Deco is not everyone’s cup of tea and, truthfully, it’s not a style I’d do in my own home either. However, for the space and the occasion. Wow! The room looks stunning. Who wouldn’t want to hang out there for a while?
I love the swooping barrel back of the seating, which was supplied by Baker, and the oranges and blues that pop against a palette of browns, creams and golds. It’s definitely got a celebratory mood about it. HuffPost also did a great profile of the designer, Madeline Stuart, who was one of the magazine’s Top 100 architects and designers for 2012.
Here are the features I think really make the space:
>> The sumptuous Schumacher fabrics in silks and velvets and that chevron pattern on the chairs
>> Playing the simple curves repeated in the chairs and table selections against the linear details on the doors and panelled walls
>> Contrast, contrast, contrast between the polished black parquet floors, ivory rug and warm tones in the upholstery fabrics
>> That sleek, sexy Art Deco bar!
What type of decor says celebration and glamour to you?
