|Bringing Back Holleywood||
it ain't just paint
We loved the palette at Holleywood: warm greens, grays, champagnes. While Chris Brennan excavated the collections of Farrow and Ball, Ben Moore, Donald Kaufman and California Paints for complementary room colors, Lance went to work recreating original shades we wanted to match.
Hard to believe, it's already time to pick paint colors for the interior. (Exterior colors will remain the same.) How to choose? Remember the Chobi rug for the dining room? Chris the decorator suggested picking a palette from those colors, keeping to the soft, muted earth tones historically at home in Italianate houses, as seen at Villa Farnesina and others, shown below.
who we are
We are a couple of Upper West Siders from NYC who never set out to buy an old mansion in Connecticut. But the moment we walked through its massive front door, we were smitten. The info on this site is earnestly cobbled from a variety of sources, including the web. Please let us know if we've gotten something wrong, or if there's a story about Holleywood you'd like to share.
