Master Bedroom - interior design
The color is like a pomegranate and changes thru-out the day and seasons. And it all started with the wild anc crazy piece of art hanging on the wall. That was a garage sale find and from that came the color of the room. loved the browns and silvers mixed with the gleaming reds, the bed linens came next and the chair fabric was a total luck, the pic is over exposed.

Modern mix L.A. dining room: Stained tile floors + shell chandelier
The nice colors and materials in Claire Forlani's dining room, designed by Estee Stanley. The Los Angeles house was originally outfitted with terra-cotta tile floors, but the burnt-orange color didn't complement the new decor, so Stanley stained the tiles darker with a special glaze treatment. The delicate shell chandelier adds a feminine touch. Photo by Melanie Acevedo, Domino, October 2006.
David Hicks's living room: Coca-cola brown walls + white trim
In the 1960s, David Hicks lacquered the walls of his Chelsea living room in a color he called "Coca-Cola." The woodwork and ceiling are a bright white. Designer Peter Dunham: "This room sealed it — David Hicks was the James Bond of interior design. Wow! It's a great bold, sexy statement, and — much like somebody wearing a black dress — extremely flattering to the architecture and the things you put up against it. I would do it in Farrow & Ball Mahogany, a very dark brown, in a full gloss finish as he did, so it becomes luminous."

Elegant white living room
The living room of interior designer Phoebe Howard’s Atlanta apartment. Walls are painted Farrow & Ball's Clunch, a soft warm white.
She turned an antique French tapestry into one long rectangular pillow because she prefers the large shape to that of many small throw pillows. The room's showpiece is a George III gilded mirror with a broken pediment. Curtains in Schumacher cotton sateen are tucked directly under the cornice. An English mahogany breakfast table serves as an oversize side table.
Her husband, architect James Howard, installed classical revival paneling with acanthus corbels and moldings. The ceilings are only eight and a half feet, but by using an egg-and-dart cornice that projects into the rooms and onto the ceilings, rather than one that sits flat on the walls, he created the illusion of greater height.
