This room has all the bells,buttons and whistles for me. Matching ceiling- high mirrors, great consoles underneath for balance and proportion; a killer romantic chandelier, a Verellen Sofa that is casual and yet sophisticated. Flanking the sofa are matching tables and lamps and then the mix of chairs – modern and antique. This combination is as classic as it gets. Then to bring a hint more sophistication- the designer adds silver lamps next to pale pink pillows. I can hear CoCo Chanel purring….
I would like to see this painting hanging in this room or maybe in the hall just as you approach those simple pale pink pillows………..
Although the sofa seems too small, as does the coffee table: I think the white rug and walls are a hit! Add the horse head and bench and its really quite nice. Upholstery in slip covered white linen would make all the difference. A high barrel back chair and soft sofa would make you never want to leave. White Wine parties only!
There is a lot right with this idea. Leather, hidden away place, white… but I’ll bet the rest of the apartment does not flow at all. I can see this easily however as the end of an office, or powder room or small sitting room. Throw on a bright yellow cashmere throw and re shoot!
In this Dining Room, Thomas Pheasant uses white as a backdrop for the clarity of his designs for his Baker Furniture line. The elegant greek key table, chandelier and wall sconces might be diluted with another color.
White here just says clean and that is the look Thomas Pheasant is achieving here. Neat and clean and stylish.
Still it is Contemporary setting where white shines and where you can make less mistakes.
A design you would only see in Europe.

and for me, this is what started it all.
