My friend, Designer Sally Steponkus, just sent me pictures of a gorgeous condo in the West End, filled with pieces from some of my favorite companies. Take a look.
Sally’s clients, an Obama appointee and his wife, wanted a contemporary/mid-century modern look embellished with vintage pieces. In addition, she says, “The wife is extremely fashionable, and she wanted something fashionable.” Sally delivered.
The wife’s fashion sense is apparent the minute you steps through the door, where you see a vintage bench underneath a bone mirror on one side — and my fav’s — a nailhead chest from Worlds Away with dazzling silver lamps by Shine across the way. The wonderfully graphic grasscloth wall covering by Phillip Jeffries sets it all off.
This couple entertains a lot, so they requested a dining table for eight. In keeping with the mid-century aesthetic, Sally gave them a Tulip table but updated the look with Ghost chairs, which also keep the space airy and open.
The West Elm barstools are perfect here, and in a nod to tradition (and fashion), Sally had the couple’s linen napkins embroidered with their first initials by Leontine Linens, a New Orleans company I adore.
The couple’s Leontine monogram is repeated often in this space, as you can see it writ large across the headboard and bedding in the master bedroom,
The guest bedroom,
And guest bath.
And here’s Sally herself, who totally fits the look of her own designs. Have a great weekend.
