I've always enjoyed the lightness of this Albert Hadley room despite its serious setting. The bare floors, the faded chintz, a touch of yellow.
And those fantastic benches with their perfectly ragged finish.
House Beautiful featured the homeowner's new residence in their latest issue. Beautifully relaxed you can see elements that have made the move.
Not just the benches and the upholstery, still in its delightful chintz, but the pillows from the sofa, above as well.
The new home seems more reflective of what I think of as Hadley's personal style.
A delight to find the homeowner has the spring chairs of my current obsession as well.
