My friend Tony called me the other day asking for some decorating advice for his new townhouse. He said he wants to paint his walls dark grey (love) and said I could see what shade he was thinking about by looking at the photos of Brooke Shield's Greenwich Village townhouse in Architectural Digest. As soon as I saw the photos I knew he was on the right track. I knew the color well--it's Benjamin Moore's Chelsea Gray. And, then I thought the interior was so beautiful I had to put these photos on the blog. Here ya go...photographed by my favorite interiors photographer, William Waldron.
Her home was renovated in collaboration with David Flint Wood and MADE architects. They combined modern with antiques, my favorite thing to do...they paired Louis XVI–style armchairs, and a French Empire commode, with a 1970s Lucite-base cocktail table. And the styles are amazing together.
The chandelier is from Laurin Copen Antiques and is paired with Jansen chairs. The vintage marble-top pedestal table is from Ralph Lauren Home and the wallpaper is from Zuber’s Les Lointains.
