My good friend, Houston-based interior designer, Sally Wheat recently sent me a sneak peek of a new project she just had photographed which I couldn’t wait to share with all of you. Initially, she sent me the image above and upon seeing the fabulous malachite drapes I asked Sally for more, more, more! I adore malachite and typically opt to wear it rather than decorating with it. I love how bold this look is. It certainly takes moxie to have such a statement-making design element in one’s home. What I love most about it is the fact that the malachite evokes images of Hollywood Regency glamour. I had the amazing opportunity to attend a luncheon at Tony Duquette and Hutton Wilkinson’s fabulous Beverly Hills estate, Dawnridge last year and malachite reigns supreme in that amazing residence. It turns out, the fabric Sally used for the drapes is actually from the Tony Duquette Collection for Jim Thompson Fabrics– so my immediate reaction to them makes perfect sense! You can see more of Dawnridge in the current issue of Lonny, but for now, let’s take a look at this glamorous, modern home Sally designed.
