This is home to Beirut-based interior designer May Daouk. The over sized rooms with soaring ceilings are filled with an eclectic mix of antiques, art, and modern pieces. I just love the use of color in this updated 19th century villa, the pastel walls, instead of making the rooms feel overtly sweet, somehow give the rooms a sense of heft and lively grandeur. I spotted these magnificent photos by Simon Watson, in Architectural Digest this morning.
I adore the purple lacquered book cases and the purple velvet chairs.
I love the blue walls with the architectural prints, and the red chairs. Just fabulous. The ideas is sort of formal, but the execution is casual...the result is fabulous!
