“I envision a well-traveled owner who loves beauty and collections—she’s a grande dame but young, and definitely a little irreverent. Think Doris Duke meets Isabella Stewart Gardner.” -Michelle Nussbaumer
Michelle encased the room with wallpaper she designed for Paul Montgomery. “It’s inspired by Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild in Cap Ferrat, which has the most extraordinary series of gardens. This wallpaper is a patchwork of the gardens’ flowers from around the world.” The chandelier is from Visual Comfort & Co.
Michelle says, “I believe in living life and decorating in technicolor, served up with a worldly dash of pattern.”
“My spaces represent a lot of my favorite places and things. The powder room wallpaper is based on a Venetian palazzo, and the printed velvet depicts my grandmother’s crazy quilt that I still own.” Turquoise foo dogs stand guard atop brackets. The hardware Michelle designed with Modern Matter is based on one of her personal pieces of lapis lazuli jewelry.
