When I saw that Muriel Brandolini's New York townhouse was featured on NYSD, I flipped. I love Brandolini's designs and while I had seen snippets of her house before, I hadn't seen the whole thing. I particularly love her art collection, and how every wall in her house is covered in beautiful textured fabrics or wallpapers.
The walls here are covered in a silver shimmery fabric. You can really tell that every single item has been carefull selected, from the pendant lamp to the art, to the rug. It doesn't necessarily match, but it certainly works!
That console is gorgeous and so is the lamp sitting on it. I love how those thick books are simply stacked on the floor.
What a gorgeous gallery wall! The walls here are covered in gold silk taffeta. It certainly gives the room texture!
There is a lot going on in this hallway, but I love the crazy mix of color and patterns. The red sconce is gorgeous!
The master bedroom is definitely a favorite. The walls are camel-colored straw. You will have guessed I'm loving the gallery walls.
The bed frame is a bit crazy for my personal taste, but it's definitely a gorgeous piece!
I love how cozy and relaxing this bathroom looks. With a hint of old-world, it seems perfect for a candlelit bath... On the right is a gorgeous vignette of her daughter Flippa's room.
This guest bedroom is also a media room. Notice all the DVDs? I love the patterned ceilings. Ceilings tend to be widely overlooked in many designs. Imagine how fun it would be to be a guest in this house?
Of course no townhouse would be complete with a delightful and leafy little garden. Brandolini's lined hers with bamboo shoots.
And here is the woman behind the house. She's a fascinating woman. Born to a French-Venezuelan mother and a Vietnamese father, Brandolini has lived in Vietnam, Martinique, Paris and New York. Read the full interview here.
What are your thoughts on the house? Love or hate? What are your favorite parts?
