Trend Alert: RED

EXCITING  |  CONFIDENT  |  CLASSIC

R E D

With holiday hues in full force and winter weather FINALLY on the horizon, we just can't get enough of this season's "IT" color:  RED!

We were so excited when the bold, sexy color returned to runways earlier this year through way of domination during NYFW, and again when it stole the first spot in Pantone's Fashion Color Report post-fashion week.

 

DREAM HOME 2014

The return of red immediately sparked images of the foyer we designed for Dream Home's 10th Anniversary celebration back in 2014.  When designing this space, we grew more and more in tune with the realization that the color and classicism in the golds, textures, and layers were at the very heart of what made the room both inviting and timeless.  The key element was the drama created by Maya Romanoff's wall covering, Weathered Walls in Candy Apple, which is made to look like distressed leather panels.

 In this room, Albert Hadley kept the chintz in the library that Sister Parish designed for Brooke Astor's apartment on Park Avenue, but he tore out the walls and put in brass-fitted bookshelves.
