Love this all in one room designed by Steven Gambrel. This city living room dining room combination is a renovated and remodeled ballroom.
Decorative molding and greyish lavender paint are combined to create a "panel" effect on the walls...these long rectangular panels act as a link between the high high ceilings and the rest of the room - a little design helping the architecture along!
I definitely like the dark black fireplace too.
And notice...more purple, lavender, lilac...hmmmm...purple is not my favorite color but for some reason this week I've been loving the way the lighter shades are used in design. Notice all of the lamps in different shades of purple!
What do you think of this converted ballroom. Do you like it as open living space or would you prefer to just dance in a room like this?
P.S. Am off to a party tonight with fab assistant KS, my good friend Yifat Oren and new friend JK. Will be fun!
