I understand this is a horrid scan (note to self: get better scanner) of an otherwise fabulous image, but you can see the magic, can't you?
I am taken by it.
I obvi love the ginger jar, but other than that, I'm not crazy about any of the elements alone - the table, the painting, the books - but together...they are SO good. I absolutely love the juxtaposition of the colorful ginger jar with the modern painting set against a neutral/stark background. Who's with me?
This little gem came from the current issue of Renovation Style. The home is located on Long Island and was renovated and decorated by Smiros & Smiros Architects with their in-house designer Lori Wolk.
A foyer is on my list of rooms I wish I had. Other rooms include a sunroom and a dressing room.
