In A Passion For Interiors Carolyne Roehm takes you on a tour through three of her best design projects: her Georgian home in Connecticut, her New York apartment,
and a ski lodge in Aspen.
Get a preview of what to expect of two of these homes in this previous post, showing a picture of the house she designed in Aspen for her beau Simon Pinniger, and a picture of her Georgian home located in Sharon, Connecticut.
If you adore painted furniture, and interiors based around white, The Aspen home will blow you away. You will love the distressed looks of limed wood, and polished brass and silver, and the textiles based around the color blue. The Gustavian Swedish looks of the 18th century are beyond stunning to live with, and in this Aspen home, Roehm nails down the look. While Gustavian decorating can play off really rustic interiors, such as overly distressed furniture, wood walls, and country decorating, there is also a side to Gustavian decorating that is grand. Regal interiors showing off lots of polished metals, ornate gilt wood carved Louis XVI chairs and the very best that the 17th and 18th centuries have to offer.
Roehm's 1765 Georgian home was designed to resemble a British estate. Her famous blue and white bedroom was re-decorated and her grand English bed is what she based her room around. The Georgian bed was reproduction from a London antiques shop. In one of her guest rooms, a Chinese look is presented decorated in a remarkable yellow print with stripes and leopard spots accented with upscale black chinoiserie furniture.
Roehm's New York City home features a double-height ceilings, eighteenth and
nineteenth century art and furniture, and walls upholstered with chocolate brown
velveteen. The home has a taste for classical furnishings and decor. The very best antiques are featured in her home. This book shows so many great examples of classical decorating such as columns, pillars, chinoiserie, gilt wood mirrors, chandeliers, sconces, libraries, blue & white china, vibrant colors, leopard prints, classical artwork and first-class English, French and Scandinavian period style furniture.
