Sarah Henley’s consumer needed a trendy entertaining place that belied the Needham home’s spec dwelling origins. “She’s a ‘Let’s make this search like us!’ type of human being,” states the principal of Henley Design and style. That the room is seen from the entry and open to the dining room built Henley’s mission all the much more significant. Working with prints from independent design and style studios and household furniture in bold silhouettes, Henley pulled with each other a plan that her shopper is delighted to present off. “It’s far more daring than a workhorse home,” she says. “It’s an eye sweet home.”

1 The sisal rug delivers a neutral base that ties to the grass-fabric wallcovering in the adjacent dining room. “I like the juxtaposition of the a few-dimensional geometric sample against the room’s rounded silhouettes,” Henley says.

2 The chairs’ square kind and darkish coloration anchor the room and individual it from the dining area with out blocking the sightline in between the spaces. “The cozy velvet upholstery channels a luxe sitting down-space vibe,” Henley claims.

3 The CB2 console’s 1970s vibe feels playful from the room’s conventional architecture. “It can double as a bar or a position to established food items, or be styled to be a spectacular focal point,” Henley claims. “This is the perspective off the foyer, so I wished a highly effective vignette.”

4 The Mary Maguire butterfly prints pop atop the wallpaper’s modest-scale waterlily sample, when the styles and jewel tones correspond with it.

5 Henley extra Nymphaea wallpaper by Zak+Fox, hanging it in between the wainscoting, which she included to the base section of the wall, and the ceiling.

6 The curvy Vladimir Kagan-motivated couch softens the angular bay window in the entrance of the property and permits for circulation driving it. The olive greens and abundant plum color of the Erika Powell and Rule of Three printed linen throw pillows contrast the mild upholstery.
