DESIGNED BY Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan


INSPIRED BY The Writer’s Library, inspired by my friend, Amor, is a dark, bookish den in which a romantic dinner has been surprisingly set for a female guest. The room is piled high with books and features items that may have come from far off travels. The side walls are painted faux bookcases for this display and inspired by the Studiolo at the MET. The room decor centers on the large, leather Ralph Lauren chair, the memorable Neisha Crosland wallpaper and accessories from Michele Varian with her funky, steampunk style.
