The Green Room






This fantastic green room in New York Social Diary caught my eye and stole my heart.  Home to architects Bill Brockschmidt and Richard Dragisic, the enchanting apartment features an impressive array of decorative objects from around the globe.  In particular I find myself drawn to the hand printed wallpaper found in the drop front desk (what a colorful surprise!) and the fantastically styled table above.  The architects’ fearless sense of color is evident from the warm natural rug to the tip top of the turquoise chandelier — oh to live in a jewel box!

    I think I would spend hours in this room, just looking at all the little details. I can imagine someone calling me for supper and just being completely oblivious because I was so engrossed. It’s such a beautiful room.
