SAN FRANCISCO, NEW YORK ROOM: A Study in Optimism INSPIRATION: "Conceived as a mystical journey of transformation, the tale begins at the front of the house with a light-filled reawakening, followed by an ascension to the celestial realm and finally a release into nature and an outdoor oasis. Anchored by two glorious custom handcrafted wallcoverings commissioned from de Gournay, the study features a bas relief mural on gilded paper representing our version of the Rite of Spring, while the adjacent bar offers an intoxicating view of the starry cosmos, embroidered entirely by hand on an Empire blue silk velvet. Both rooms are furnished with a mix of elegant Neoclassical pieces and glamorous Art Deco elements, including Lalique's black-ebony-and-crystal dragon bar. Throughout the rooms, references to mythology and divinity create a sense of magical timelessness, including a settee upholstered in velvet depicting Roman busts from my new Surreal World collection with Pierre Frey. Completing the enfilade, the outdoor patio has been transformed into a formal parterre with an armillary in the center, and statues of the Three Fates recall our most ancient quest: the never-ending search for hope and beauty in our daily lives." — Ken Fulk 73
