Old  Hollywood  Glam

This luxe great room evokes the golden age of the silver screen. The color scheme features black and white against a backdrop of cloudy silver walls accented by tall golden draperies and ivory hued accessories. Venetian and Moroccan pieces are the stars of the space, with silk Fortuny sconces, a custom chandelier of white gold-infused Murano glass, pewter leather pouffs, and a mother of pearl inlaid side table. Select antiques lend depth as they contrast with newly crafted furnishings: a centuries-old gilded frame hangs above an old Italian bomb√© chest, while across the room a silk embroidered piano shawl drapes a round table beside a pair of new leather chairs. A large contemporary wool rug anchors the conversation area with a shimmery arabesque design. The Art Deco sofa pillow’s metallic embroidery ties in nicely with the finish of the dining table’s base. The base has clean modern lines, which supports a custom slab of quartz that is indistinguishable from, but far more easy-care than marble. New Louis XVI style chairs have been reupholstered in a fabric that is closer to a Venetian brocaded velvet than the French damask one might first perceive. This elegant yet comfortable room is graced by a George Hurrell portrait of film star Marlene Dietrich. Hurrell is credited with defining Hollywood glamour and his photographic work provides a fabulously appropriate focal point.
