Albert Hadley’s sitting room for Mrs. John Hay Whitney served as inspiration for the curtains in Bruce Burstert’s music room. Funny how I had always been so focused on the vanity, that dreamy mirror, those wonderful lamps.
And, the room continues to evolve. The images from earlier today were taken a while ago. When I was there, there were new (old) portraits over the mantle and don’t miss that cut velvet on the wing chair.
