The Foyer was designed by Kelley Proxmire of Kelley Interior Design.
For her “Glitz and Glamour Galore” Foyer, Kelley Proxmire envisioned the Park Avenue home of a New York socialite and the backdrop for big entertaining. The inspiration for the room began with a pair of turquoise vases Proxmire discovered at the Charlotte Moss Townhouse in Manhattan. Building on this defining shade of blue and
Proxmire’s love for black and white, the room is a study in graphic contrasts and glamorous finishes.
The unexpected focal point of the room is the floor. In lieu of a rug, Proxmire painted the floor in a David Hicks-inspired black and white octagonal pattern, a look both bold and classic. Aside from the floor, patterns in the room are restrained. The skirted table is vibrant turquoise outlined in a bold black-and-white trim. Window treatments in crisp white silk are accented with a simple trim in turquoise on he leading edges, the bottom of the panels, and on the valance. Walls are finished in a simple yet sophisticated white grasscloth from Schumacher.
Patterns may be restrained, but the scale of the pieces in the room reads dramatic. The two console tables were originally built as dining tables; the mirrors above them soar to nearly five feet. A sweeping wall of French doors gain added impact painted black.
Accent pieces add the dazzle and refinement of jewelry to this punchy room. Crystal table lamps dispense sparkle throughout the room. Mirrors and wall sconces extend theluxurious gold tones. An oversized gilded chandelier graces the center skirted table adorned with rhinestones.
