“I wanted it to be sort of sexy—a place with cafe music and martinis being served,” says designer Jessica Dauray of the library just off the entry hall. The room’s impactful color scheme was inspired by a Manuel Canovas print featuring Mongolian warriors with coats of peacock blue and green. “For maximum impact, the cabinetry is black lacquer with brass accents,” says the designer. Chairs with custom embroidery and tassel trim give a nod to Art Deco style, while paintings that Dauray commissioned for the space have a midcentury style.
