Glitz and Glamour Galore





This chic foyer designed by Kelley Proxmire for The Washington Design Center's 2010 Design House is incredible! Kelley was inspired by a pair of turquoise vases she discovered at the closing sale of Charlotte Moss's shop in NYC. For her “Glitz and Glamour Galore” Foyer, Kelley envisioned the space as the Park Avenue home of a New York socialite, and a backdrop for big entertaining. How cool is that David Hicks-inspired octagonal pattern painted on the bamboo floor?? Read more about this fabulous room here!

Erin,
Your images are always so amazing. Your blog is the first one I can't wait to check out in the morning.

This room is stunning! You don't really think of turqoise as a formal color (more casual), but paired with black and gold, it is truly special. I also love the hexagonal pattern on the wood floor.

Beyond fabulous--so glamorous!!

This is incredible! It's very refined in the color scheme, but for some reason it doesn't seem to monochromatic. I am so in love with that honey comb floor. What a cool idea!!

What a gorgeous foyer! I absolutely love it. Especially the last photo with the turquoise artwork above the buffet/dresser. I would love to have that artwork for my family room.

Laura Bielecki said...

such a load of color, drama and GLAM! great scheme with lots of excitement.

Chocolate & Turquiose, my two favourite colours. Like someone else on here said, Turquoise does not normally come across as a Grand Decorating Colour but these photos go to show that it does inspire the Regal look. And the floor, that is so inspiring. I LOVE IT

Rica said...

This room is absolutely gorgeous! Where to begin? I love the doors, the art, and photos on the plate. What an inspiration.
