Sela Ward’s Beverly Hills home circa 1999.
Notice the one tassel on each pillow.
This chair is a symphony of details, yet none of them are screaming. Tufted buttons, contrast welt on only the cushion, waterfall skirt. Lovely.
The pleating on this settee is a great detail, especially as the room is predominantly neutral. I also think the antique fabric on the pillows and the addition of that hint of blue is very sophisticated.
This is from a Diamond & Baratta Collection for Lee Jofa ad from 2005. I adore the trim on this chair and hadn’t seen anything quite like it before. It’s tape, then cord, then nail head. Those D&B guys are always more is more – it works great here.
Are you surprised this charming girl’s room (well, the room is charming; let’s assume it’s mistress was, too.) was the work of Mario Buatta? I love the detail of the chair skirt. Oh, and short curtains. I think Mrs. Parish would have thought that very “appropriate.”
