In previous posts our tour of the American Red Cross Show House described inspiration and design tips from the dining room and living room but there was a lot more to discover.
|The study was a light filled room that could not be more welcoming.
|This beautiful arched window was the perfect focal point.
|Orchids hanging in the window flourished.
|The design was filled with layers and details like the contrasting welt on the sofa.
|The wainscot molding was placed higher than you might think in this room with average height ceilings.
|Placing a comfy chair and ottoman near a window is the best spot to curl up with a good book (or decorating magazine).
|The designer, Stephan Mooney, took his inspiration from this fabulous fabric.
|Even though it was a large room it had many intimate spaces. Notice how a small painting hangs on the paneling.
|Another way to add detail is to trim the skirt of a sofa or chair.
|A mix of many patterned pillows keeps the study from looking "decorated".
|A favorite feature of this house were the little doorways that beckoned. Look at the arched transom above the door. This hallway lead to a bathroom and a den beyond.
