The living room color palette was based on the blue, orange and green hues of the custom drapery. After falling in love with the fabric, Schumacher and her client decided to base the rest of the living room around this organic looking textile.
Two couches and several armchairs provide ample seating for the family and guests. Since living room is so large, finding a coffee table that would marry the space with the couches and armchairs was a challenge. At the last minute, they found a large enough table from a high-end furniture store in New York.

Blue Couch: Kravet Sofa, upholstered in F. Schumacher Cotton Club Velvet
Schumacher wanted the design to focus on the homeowners' antique furniture and art collection. In this bar and lounge area next to the entryway, she created a welcoming space for guests with a custom bar and beautifully worn leather sofa.

Although its design is bold, the dining room is actually a very informal space. Schumacher and her clients purposely designed this space as a place where the family could just hang out, without being holed up in their own rooms.
Schumacher upholstered a bench in a classic David Hicks pattern for comfy seating on one side of the table, and used two of the clients' arm chairs at either end. Other chairs one of the homeowners found were painted a brilliant burgundy for more seating.

The clients knew right off the bat they didn't want their home to have yet another all-white kitchen. Although some of the cabinetry is white and white Calcutta marble was installed on the countertops and stove backsplash, Schumacher decided to use the island and wall space to implement bold color. The wallpaper is a custom, hand-painted work of art from Stark. It took almost a year for Schumacher to get the wallpaper, which was hand-painted on silk in China.
After the wallpaper was installed, Schumacher had it sealed with Proseal, which allows the wallpaper to act as a backsplash. "You can throw spaghetti at it and it'll clean right off," she says.

This cozy library and media room is one of the homeowners' favorite rooms. Most of this furniture belonged to them already, which gives the room a comfortable, broken-in feel. The soft lighting and plush carpeting make it the perfect space to watch movies or curl up with a book on the soft leather chaise.
A luxurious freestanding tub stands at the other end of the master bathroom. Blue, Morrocan-like draperies offset the same honey colored grasscloth used in the living room. The fireplace makes this area the perfect place to relax on a crisp fall day, and the oyster surround adds an extra high-end touch.
