I’ve always been fond of very opulent interiors. For me they are pure fantasy, lavish, glamorous and just plain beautiful. If I could have a grand great room…you know the sort you walk into by way of an overscale ornate iron front door, which opens into a foyer of Calcutta marble flooring, it would be adorned with a magnificent Murano chandelier. A focal point would be a large marquetry mahogany round pedestal table; with its centerpiece of hand picked white, lavender and blue hydrangeas interspersed with fragrant white and pink lily’s from my beautifully manicured garden of course….think Versailles (a girl can dream, right!). Here are the furnishings I would decorate with.
Beginning with a Knole sofa
This one is a bit more contemporary in feel versus a more traditional look with double or triple seat cushions, bolster pillows, fringe detailing and more traditional fabric. This is one of the first upholstered sofas designed in 17th c. England. The back designed to keep the cold drafts at bay, and the convertible sides, perfect for nap taking held upright with cording.
