Cream Traditional Bedroom

A beautiful hazy sunset infused with shades of lavender informed
Donna Vining’s master bedroom, where a Fortuny pattern-inspired wall
application—masterfully crafted using paint and silver painted stencil—
became the backdrop. Reflecting on how the large space would have been
used originally, Vining created a seating area at the foot of the bed, where
the lady of the house would have received her children and her staff, and
selected a wingback chair and ottoman for a cozy fireside reading spot.
“The architecture is timeless, and I selected items that would reflect that,”
says Vining, who grouped two curule carved benches with a Louis XV
settee and delicate antique papier-mâché tray coffee table.
