One would never suspect the room that designer Basha White created was once the dreariest in this showhouse. Her finished project exudes a quiet but memorable glamour as well as color confidence.
"The room had minimal light," says Basha of the space, originally the breakfast room of this 1905 Georgian mansion. "I made it brighter and lighter with the right colors and a bit of Hollywood glam."
She painted the walls of the room a dreamy pastel lavender that enhances the amethyst crystal used in the table settings. Raffia fabric on the Louis XVI dining chairs and a striking iron chandelier with large rock crystal drops add to the striking vignette.
