I took this home from a dark English colonial/country house to an elegant and sophisticated chateau. The client requested a romantic yet glamorous look. Throughout the house lush fabrics were used: satins, silks, velvets and linens. I used all the existing pieces of furniture and reupholstered everything. I brought in many new occasional pieces, lamps, mirrors, and artwork; all with a distinct 1940's glamour to them. The result was a light and bright home with elegance as the theme.
