Moroccan Red 1309Posted: 10/07/2011 | |
Designer Alexa Hampton on Moroccan Red (I love that she invokes Pride and Prejudice):
“…Dining rooms are traditionally red, and this is the red of the riding jackets in British hunting prints, the red of the proverbial redcoats — the military men everyone went gaga for in Jane Austen’s books. In addition to making Kitty Bennet swoon, red conveys a sense of royalty.”
For the kitchen of a 1920s Los Angeles home, above, designer Peter Dunham painted American spindle chairs Moroccan Red and used French industrial metal pendants from Bourgeois Bohème to light the table and island. “The kitchen is very traditional,” he says. “I needed the color and patina to perk it up.”
In this Martha’s Vineyard cottage, above, designer Paula Perlini painted the high wainscot a cool white and the strip above Moroccan Red. The chairs are covered with Summer Hill’s Sardinia in Pacific Blue and the game table and chairs are from Walters Wicker.
