A Gilded Space
This drawing room by Kristin Kelli was another favorite space of mine in the Kips Bay show house. Kristin Fitzgibbons and Kelli Ford created an art filled, fun loving space that is highly stylized. The touches of gold and look of glamour infused with natural materials keep it grounded and gorgeous! The girls' goal was to make a happy room that would work in Manhattan as well as in the Hampton's.
What is one to do with a 35 foot long room? Make two seating areas, of course, and layer the length with great art by the likes of Damian Hirst, Roy Lichtenstain and my new fav and Instagram "it artist," Kurt Pio. His diamond paintings are as brilliant as the stones themselves. Phillip Jeffries chevron wood veneer wallpaper is a beautiful backdrop.
Loved the way the shearling, patent leather and rattan chairs balance each other on either side of the room.
An Yves Klein Bleu table looks perfect in any setting, but under those blue beams and a touch of purple ~ absolutely beguiling.
Mixed metals making an appearance, strategically placed around the room, kept it shining brightly. A dusting of gold covering the birch logs in the fireplace as well, magic.
