I stumbled onto Greystone Mansion, a beautiful home built in the 1920s in Beverly Hills via Woodson & Rummerfield’s and was instantly drawn to the photo above.
I LOVE that painting of that woman in the beautiful white dress in that ornate white frame. Very Ava Gardner-esque. To add texture, interest and avoiding the painting and pink of the room from being cloying and too sweet, the designer has added the gilt wheat sconce, the red leather lounge and the black lampshade. I see what you did there!
Then I saw that adjacent to that wall is another stunning wall, behind the bed:
Check out that beautiful Chinese peacock painting! On closer inspection, it looks like a wallpaper panel. I LOVE peacocks and this print is exquisite. Against that watermelon pink of the walls, this painting stands out beautifully, yet does not overtake the room. Your eye is still drawn to the lucite and leather bed. (The nightstand match too.)
The sumptuous bed is made with Lucite, butter soft leather and Swarovski crystals. The lighting of the antique cat-tail sconces and French candelabra light fixtures from HabiteLA along with the French mirrored vanity from the 1920’s add to the mystique of this romantic room. – From Woodson & Rummerfield’s website.
So many styles come together in this room, but because there’s very little pattern besides the large painting behind the bed, it works beautifully. Even the cowhide rug! And I do love the honey tones of the wooden floors.
