What fun to live in a little jewel box by the sea! This image resonates with me, it's my Naples living room, inspired by many different things~ but it does remind me somewhat of the Fifth Avenue apartment of Mary Gilbert, in New York, where I met her friend, Hurd Hatfield. Hurd had played Dorian Gray in the movie version of the Oscar Wilde novel.
Mary's flat- decorated by the firm of Marshall-Schule, was an over the top confection, inspired by the Brighton pavilion, and Russian palaces. It was elegant and beautiful. Just like Mary. Ned Marshall is a superbly talented decorator and colorist, and is living in New Orleans. A fellow native of the great state of Georgia, he's a true Southern gent. Happy Memorial Day weekend, and Happy Summer! Enjoy! DF *****
