PAINTED FLOORS, Ultra Chic

Albert Hadley
Not often seen, the painted floors I dream of are the rara avis of high style decoration.  Think Bunny Mellon,  Sister Parish, and Carolyne Roehm...the room shown above is in Florida and was designed by the late Albert Hadley.

Even something as simple as a plain (un-patterned) painted floor sends me over the moon!  Such as the Long Island salle a manger of tastemaker and style icon, Gloria Vanderbilt, shown above.

A variant on paint is the collaged fabric floor, varnished.  Todd Oldham the fashion designer, also had this done in his boutiques once upon a time.

  1. Fabulous post, Dean! I love painted floors!! The ones in Patricia Altschul's bathroom have always been a favorite. And the faux marble by Carolyne Roehm is brilliant.

    1. Hi Artie,
      Maybe for your birthday!
      The look of chairs dancing on them makes me very happy.
