Designer Alexa Hampton’s living room, called “Olympia Folly,” exudes neoclassicist style with fabric-draped walls and a ceiling painted by Chuck Fischer to look as if it was tented. She merged rich fabrics and patterns, including animal skin, along with temple artwork, a Klismos chair and even a Roman helmet. The room was in the 2018 Kips Bay Decorator Show House in New York City.
A chic apartment bedroom makeover by Washington, D.C.-based Shannon Claire Interiors features a pink bed, mid-century style nightstands, floral wallpaper, gold drapes, a brass light fixture and an upholstered ceiling using Fabricut’s Lush fabric in ruby.
This tent is made luxurious thanks to the beautiful fabrics draped from the ceiling and over the bed. Patterns in the rugs, fabrics used, and pillows are mixed to create a sophisticated, yet rustic feel.
A late 19th century Turkish oushak rug in creamy coral and gold sets the tone in this elegant dining room. A dark wood dining table with Queen Anne chairs is positioned beneath a detailed barrel ceiling. The walls are upholstered in fabric that coordinates with the drapes and valance.
Down the hall, guests will arrive at a spacious sitting room. Here, they can choose from several comfortable seating options and admire a custom light fixture from Casa Zeta Italia, which is made of steel and fabric. Floor-to-ceiling drapes emphasize the room’s height and also allow for privacy at night.
Soaring proportions bring a stately presence to this cool, contemporary living room. Fabric drapes two walls from floor to ceiling, a dramatic element with an almost theatrical effect, particularly when paired with spotlights and a showstopping contemporary pendant fixture. Ample seating blends with the gray walls and draperies and provides plenty of space for gatherings both large and intimate.
