Ali Wentworth & George Stephanopoulos' Fabulous home as designed by Elizabeth Martin was featured in Elle Decor recently. Click above to see the 14 picture slide show (there's much more to see). And now for my commentary..as if you need it.
Where do I begin. First off this home is the perfect balance between feminine and masculine. who would've ever thought pink poufs and a rug with lavender swirly things could look so sophisticated and elegant.. Love love love the dark walls. I think it works great with light floors. Love the pop of color on the bookshelves, love the fabric on all three chairs...love the long curtains. I especially love that its not uptight, decorator-ish and predictable.A Fuschia Settee in a room with muted, organic, textural materials..again the things Ms. Martin has paired up here are so unexpected. It's like a girl with natural beauty (you know the kind) great skin, natural hair, no makeup, wearing a pair of fabulous pink beaded earrings..
I love the shells. (Ali W. has collected them her whole life). Sentimental. Clean. Pretty --all showcased in a very utilitarian no fuss way. LOVE IT!
