BEAUTY: Interiors--Villard Michel Richard by Jeffrey Beers International
Interior design firm Jeffrey Beers International have created a fantastic new restaurant, Villard Michel Richard at the New York Palace Hotel in New York City. I adore how the firm have played up the 1880's Beaux-Arts interiors with modern elements. As an interior designer, one of my design mantras is "Contrast brings interest" and this illustrates my point exactly. Look how the sleek furnishings, tables lighted from below (!), over-sized portraits of glamorous iconic actresses of yesteryear lit by purple LEDs, and a glass cube wine cellar in the middle of one of the dining rooms both stand out from and compliment the ornate architecture. Stunning.
