Ashley Whittaker is a master colorist!
She mixes pattern and color with ease while continually making traditional design feel fresh and updated.
This project is yet another example of her immense talent.
Contrast and continuity are vital to this home’s harmony.
In the sunlit living room of this weekend home, de Gournay Chatsworth wallpaper delivers springlike blooms year-round; the banquette is upholstered in a tweed and the tufted sofa is in a velvet, both by Clarence House. “It’s a room where the kids can curl up on the banquette, or grown-ups can enjoy a drink before dinner,” Whittaker says.

In the breakfast room, a punchy lantern from the Urban Electric Co. picks up the crimson tones in the floral Brunschwig & Fils linen on the backs of the Oly chairs. The baby blue of Quadrille’s treillage-patterned wallpaper coordinates with the Kravet faux leather used to upholster the chair seats.

“I love taking a dark interior room and making it even darker!” Whittaker says of the powder room, which is sheathed in Tulu Textiles Balthazar Blue fabric.
