Old School - Betty Sherrill's New York Apartment

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

I came across an article in the New York Social Diary that featured decorator Betty Sherrill's (of New York City's McMillen, Inc. Design firm) apartment.  The look is super traditional with lots of French and English antiques, original paintings, soft colors and traditional floral prints.  This style is what made me fall in love with interior design and decorating a few decades ago.  My taste has changed a little since then, but I still love traditional style and layers of pretty things.
The living room has buttery walls and is more cluttered than we typically see today.  But it's pretty clutter.

Don't you love the trim on that tablecloth?

This little area off the living room is a bar, and it looks like lattice on the walls.

This is the library.  It's so cozy with the warm color on the walls and the mix of pattern.

Here's a tighter shot of the library shelves packed with family photos and personal momentos.

This room is more restrained than the rest of the house. What do you think of the leopard chairs on the leopard rug?

This is a shot of the bathroom's family gallery - casually placed right on the tile.

If you get a chance, head over to the New York Social Diary and read the article.  Ms. Sherrill is a lady with an opinion and she's happy to share it!

Hope you're having a great week!
