Putting together a room for a Showhouse always takes a great deal of effort and energy, not to mention a lot of teamwork to make it all come together seamlessly. Serena & Lily was the primary partner for our room, but we also collaborated with several other wonderful companies- Farrow & Ball, English Country Antiques and Keivan Woven Arts.
I have really enjoyed incorporating Farrow & Ball paints and wallpapers into my projects over the years. Their quality is excellent and their color pallet is exquisite. I knew that when I began the designs for this room, I wanted to use a striped paper in alternating directions, and Farrow & Ball’s Closet Stripe paper was the perfect solution! I had the paper hung so that the stripes alternated on the walls from horizontal to vertical. The result: a relaxed interpretation of a more traditional stripe.
English Country Antiques and their fantastic antique shop in Southampton helped us find several antique pieces to place in the bedroom. The store has an extensive collection of English antiques that are carefully curated by the owner himself. While I have shopped their inventory on 1st Dibs, I had no idea how diverse their inventory actual is until I visited the shop in person. The Bobbin Corner Chair, Bamboo Occasional Table and Chest of Drawers, all from English Country, added a vintage layer to the room when coupled with the Serena & Lily pieces.
As a frequent client of Keivan Woven Arts in Atlanta, I called on them to find an antique rug that would be suitable for a home in the Hamptons. What we selected was an antique Kilim rug that was hand-woven in Turkey. I love this rug because it’s a flat weave rug which allows for it to become well-worn over time.
