This is a fantastical world with green striped Voutsa wallpaper, which matches the portières and covers the walls and ceiling. High- gloss rose-colored Audubon molding trim from Fleur Home scallops the ceiling, crown, baseboards and heart-shaped bookcase. The sectional sofa is a dazzling respite from the world outside, for contemplating the beauty of art, love, and film. The custom Champagne Bar serves as a focal point that pays homage to the whiplash designs of Art Nouveau and Hector Guimard's Paris metro stations. Crowning the bar is a Maison Jansen- inspired canopy valance dripping with fringe and covered in dramatic rose-colored duchess satin with voluminous ball-gown drapes. Vintage Vladimir Kagan-inspired swivel chairs, and palm lamps weave in a romantic bohemian atmosphere, while Turkish pillow ottomans in raspberry and chartreuse Fortuny fabric serve as an intimate spot to curl up. Here, fantasy is real, and you can-can be anything you want." — Courtnay Tartt Elias PHOTOGRAPHY JULIE SOEFER 86
