THE PHENE VIA CROP
I came across this amazing purple room on Pinterest, and immediately fell in love with the wonderful atmosphere and the endless glamour. After a little investigative journalism, I found it to be The Phene restaurant in London.
THE PHENE VIA AN AMERICAN GIRL IN CHELSEA
A beautiful specimen of the sun mirror, layered on top of a floor-to-ceiling mirrored fireplace definitely constitute the focal point of the room. Apart from the gold ceiling, the room is decorated in a monochromatic color scheme of purple. Velvet fabric adds a heaviness and shine that I always find very glamorous. Here’s a tiny slideshow with a few more pictures; enjoy:

I just love Style at Home‘s High/Low series. This boudoir cost $10,000, click here to see it done for only $4,000. It’s nearly identical!
Paint color is Benjamin Moore Hot Pink.

Here is a beautiful beige living area accented with blue and green. Notice how the color scheme in this room is built up in three “layers”:
- The Beige works as a warm neutral background.
- Teal is layered on in furniture, area rug and accessories.
- Green is limited to the accents.
Do you see it? The result is a harmonious and pulled together room. Apart from forming a great color relationship with blue, the green adds interest and pulls your eye throughout the room. How about you? Do you think in terms of layering when you decorate?
