The tuxedo sofas’ lustrous silver Manuel Canovas silk velvet upholstery sets the tone of modern glamour. When she was a teenager, the homeowner’s daughter loved to do her homework here, even though it’s actually the home’s formal living room, said Catherine Skaletsky and Danielle McClure of Wellesley-based Catherine & McClure Interiors, which decorated the entire Weston Colonial.
Schumacher’s Margaux linen embroidery damask drapes frame the fireplace, which is the focal point of the room. The tone-on-tone pattern hits just the right note of traditional, the designers said.
Beveled acrylic side tables from Donghia offer an interesting silhouette without distraction. Despite their small size, the blown-glass Porta Romana Dumpling lamps provide impactful jewel-like color pops.
The room’s bright spot is a color field abstract by Dusty Griffith from Pryor Fine Art in Atlanta that incorporates multiple layers of wax, plexiglass, and tracing paper.
