How fabulous is that apricot and lime green combination? These photos are from New York Social Diary, not House Beautiful; the HB photos had a much less washed-out quality and I would imagine are closer to the actual hues.

A commode worthy of Madame de Pompadour.
Wonderful interview with Maureen Footer over at the New York Social Diary HERE. Below are a few images from her portfolio. I love the luscious color parings and luxurious materials; it's rare to see work of Footer's style where spaces are fine without being fussy. And, while I don't imagine they could ever be mistaken for "democratic" (i.e. inexpensive), her rooms don't proclaim: I Have Money And I Spent It. As Auntie always said, quality speaks for itself.
