Image 1: This grand room presented several challenges. The soaring ceilings and marble floors created an echo throughout the space, the two layers of windows appeared disjointed, and the volume of the space was so large it needed to become more intimate.
Custom trim details were applied between the two windows to join them visually. Drapery panels were hung under the Gothic arched windows to create sound insulation, soften and unite the windows.
For more intimacy the room was divided into a main seating area featuring a pair of sofas facing one another anchored by a large area rug, a game table with four chairs was nestled into the left side of the room and anchored with a large cabinet, and their baby grand player piano was featured prominently just off the formal entry.
The Counts' custom family crest was hand painted on leather, framed and placed over the mantle shelf.
