Never in a million years would I think myself a fan of an orange sofa. But there’s certainly a first time for everything, and this lofty New York space, designed for owner James Hirschfeld (co-founder of Paperless Post!) by CeCe Barfield, is convincing me that there is something to love in this bold color.
If you let your eye travel through the space you’ll notice a mix of rich greens and classic blues dappled throughout the loft, and I love how these saturated tones are all working together!
Only a space like this, with ceilings that high could house a shaded chandelier of that scale, and I love it. Please note the pleated lampshades throughout the room – even on the grande dame.
This is a dream library set up if I’ve ever seen one. I’m a huge fan of any opportunity to mix books in with a dining room, and the experience of a library ladder. The artwork placement is also just lovely! In fact, the mix of art in the home is quite fun. Ranging from moody to modern, the array and placement keep your eye moving. I can never get enough art!
And while this is a Room of the Week, I can’t resist sharing a few other moments from this well designed space.
The kitchen, with its mix of polished nickel hardware and green marble countertops, is an instant classic. I just wish I could see more of it!
And the bedroom, where the blue and orange-red color scheme continues is so unexpected! If feels cozy, classic and playful, which is always a winning combination. Its inspiring me to try some orange in my dining room whose walls are quite similar to this!
Could you adopt such a bold palette in your own home? Where would you put it??
