Naples Illustrated

Here is the Living Room I designed for a favorite client - which is featured in the October issue of "Naples Illustrated". This client loves to travel, and is always returning to Naples with wonderful objects from Africa, Thailand, and Italy. Her son recently was married in Mexico. And she knows Paris and New York very well. She is also an extremely beautiful woman, and once owned a boutique in Washington, DC called "So Much More". She's a lady of style and taste and a lot of fun to work with, since she makes decisions very quickly.

In this part of the villa, we used a lot of champagne colored silk, (over 100 yards) for draperies and upholstery, and accented with a red printed cotton with a jaguar motif from Fabricut. The zebra rug adds drama, and the glazed walls match the champagne silk. This room is especially dramatic at night with the chandelier glowing and the subtle recessed lighting on dimmers. The Dining Room we glazed in a deep red, and I designed a custom table. My client designed the console which is built in to the niche. Construction by Landmark Development. All interiors by Dean Farris Interior Design.
