Tailored Living Room
Vintage or new, edgy or classic, introverted or extroverted, each piece lives amicably here, and all are held together by a palette that never strays far from neutral. “I’m kind of obsessed with gray,” laughs Ryan. “I start with a light gray, or a white with some gray in it. I then add color and texture—a blue velvet or a beautiful linen. Those details make a huge difference.”
In the vaulted living room, those details come not only in the form of vintage furniture but also in bold stripes and sentimental pieces. An Ernest Holzman photograph purchased by Warren at a charity auction became the room’s touchstone. Hung above the fireplace, it inspired the room’s casual yet dramatic aesthetic.
The living room is a study in high and low, patinated and polished. Navy club chairs not only ground the room but also offer rich contrast. “I upholstered them in denim and then added velvet cushions piped with denim,” Ryan says. “They’re tailored but casual. They add to the story of the room, so that it’s not one note, but a symphony of notes.”
“The beams in the living room are fantastic,” Ryan says. “They give the room a Nantucket cottage-like feel.”
