. . . DE GOURNAY SILK WALLS and Scalamandré velvet sofas and Maison Baguès crystal sconces, gilded mirrors and chandeliers, and custom canopy beds — this Ruthie Sommers designed townhouse in Chicago is as chic as France in the 20’s . . .

A proponent of old-fashioned decorating allied with strong personality and luscious hues, Sommers is known for rooms that are modern in spirit but have a sense of the past.

    Dear Miss Roseline, I havent seen Ruthie Sommers work for ages, Great post – interesting- I believe the gold side table in the lounge was also used in Susan Kaslers house in the Atlanta Homes shot (kind of a ladies version of Herve Vanden Straeten’s work)

    (Ive seriously got to get more of a life, noticing things like that! )

    Meanwhile back to chosing saniatryware for the new build (rivoting, I know ) …..its never ending! Sorry I’ve been MIA lately, Ive been occupied with things such as that.

    Love and hugs
