First, I have to say that I am not a pink or purple person.
However, I love this jewel box of a hotel room at 79 Crosby Street. The cool dark slate gray as back drop to the pop of the magenta is fantastic. It’s just the right balance between the two and downplayed with just enough white to not make it all too overwhelming. Really, the eye needs to be able to rest somewhere… and speaking of resting, don’t you just want to stretch right out on that bed for a quick nap before heading back out to peruse the galleries?
You just can’t go wrong with white linens. I love the band of magenta on the bench – just a little bit cheeky. And it speaks not only to the headboard and pillows but also to the band of grey on the bottom of the draperies. The pattern on the headboard is picked up only in the bedskirt – a great, fun and funky pattern and not overdone.
The magenta chair juxtaposed by the grey and white cabinet patterned cabinet is a beautiful combination. The tongue in cheek art above it is great for a room that just is not going to take itself too seriously.
For all of the bright color popping in this room, it is surprisingly restful, restrained and understated. And that’s what makes it magical…
