The bold palette—brilliant fuchsia, gold, citron green, and even orange—was preexisting, just awaiting discovery. “My inspiration was the living room’s original stained-glass windows. They were perfect because the house needed assertive color,” Dana observes. The strong colors are introduced in the window treatments and furniture upholsteries, while backgrounds—ebony-finished wood and white marble floors and stark, white plaster walls—remain neutral but dramatic. “One of the things Debbie and I worked so well together on was flow—using colors with the same intensity in different rooms and grounding them with the ebony floors.”
I love the bright colors of the home. How about you?
