Steven Sclaroff

This apartment was also posted earlier this month (on Peak of Chic), but I wanted to post it again because I think it's beautiful and deserves the attention! This is another masterpiece by decorator/antiquarian Steven Sclaroff.

Let me just say, I think the man is a genius with colour, and has a knack for creating rooms that look comfortable and lived in. Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of minimalism (sometimes), but if it's not done right the place just ends up looking like a hotel room to me. I think its really important for a home to have pieces that have a personal history and for a home to be imbued with the life and memories of the occupants.

The living room is an amazing mixture of fabrics, colours and art.

The dining room is a symphony of pattern and colour.

I love the colours in the main bedroom.

I love this sitting room. The colours are so relaxing and a bit moody, but I love the arrangement of art on the walls.

hi there!
i came across your blog through desire to inspire and i really enjoyed going through your posts!

you have a great blog here.
the last image you have posted, i agree, the wall art is great. i especially love it when designers mix up frames, sizes and style on the wall to create an eclectic mix but still keeping it cohesive.

Suzy- Very well said. Sclaroff definitely has a "look", and it is one that is rooted in tradition but eclectic too. And definitely livable.

I so agree! Steven Sclaroff’s work is brilliant! said...

Excellent post...I still love his dreamy gray bookshelf. I want to sit down in that room and read.
