Fabulous Room Friday 04.27.12

This week’s fabulous room was designed by Christina Murphy, one of my favorite young designers. I love the modern traditional approach she used in this New York apartment. A neutral palette is dotted with kelly green accents. I love the chairs pictured above—finished off with vibrant green lacquer and nailhead trim. The Vendome Triple Sconce from Circa Lighting abstract paintings, and Barcelona-style bench dressed in Windsor Smith fabric add a modern influx of style.

I always love to see rooms in which the use of seating is maximized. The layout of this room is just as ideal for an intimate conversation between friends as it is for a cocktail party as it has plenty of seating options. I especially love the rich chocolate sofa with its contrasting white base and the beautiful kelly green ikat pillows and vintage lamps in this shot. What do you love most about this room? If you could have one item from this space, which would you choose?

  1. From what I can see, this is such a great use of space! It’s almost like turning one room into two. I’m with you on the chocolate couch with the white base. So rad.

    Lovely blog! I look forward to checking back every now and then (i.e. whenever it pops up in my blog feed) 😛 Rhi xx


  2. What type of accent chair would you recommend if my room’s palette colors are grey, white, black and red? Or should i eliminate one of those colors and just focus on one color?
