A subdued silvery palette with glimmering drops of jewel-toned accents define this NYC oasis for Carole Radziwill’s home, decorated with John Bossard. I can’t help but be reminded of my grandmother’s all-blue home in Florida when I look at this living room. The soft, luxurious touches of velvet upholstery and the gorgeous huge floral arrangements bring me right to the smell of fresh lilies and the comfort of spending time in her space.
The traditionally arranged sofas and chairs are balanced by modern choices of accents, with a glass coffee table letting the carpet below show through. The room reads mostly blue and silver, but gold accents like the lamps on the sideboard and the fabulous Maison Jansen palms bring some warmth to the space. The most similar piece on the market right now are these brass palms from WS Home. I’m obsessed with them! These accents give a great lesson on mixing metals (totally do-able in my book)!
The bedroom is an elegantly composed exercise in personality, with a unique play between pale smoky gray walls, princess pink, and an installation of golden butterflies that’s playful and sophisticated. The sultry contrast really makes the pink shine and creates a note of harmony with the living room’s cooler palette.
