Something Red, Something Shabby III
Imperial Yellow silk curtains are the star of this Michael Smith-designed room in L.A. but bits of red -- in striped chairs and in pillow fabric -- add a great counterpoint. (I think the yellow silk was Smith's rare Billy Haines moment.) The gorgeous mellow rug could be interpreted as the shabby element praised by Lady Duff.
More L.A. stories with red and time-worn pieces: Above, Peter Dunham's home. The red desk is a personal favorite.
It may take a second glance to catch the red in the image. In a room with a pink-and-white-and-red stripe sofa, Suzanne Rheinstein has placed a pagoda with a red cast next to an urn with a beautifully worn patina. There are red pillows on the sofa too.
