The late Albert Hadley.Let's hear it for the color Black! Albert Hadley loved it and Ralph Laurent home uses it abundantly. Many designers say black is the king-color of style. Think of Coco Chanel! I favor the color black because it is perhaps the most versatile of all colors, it can be plaid-up to make a room sober and elegant or it could be plaid-down to make a room rustically chic.
I adore the contrast of the ornate ceiling and Serge Mouille three-arm ceiling lamp.
Can you imagine this dining room with a mahogany or white table? I don't!Madeline Weinrib's Buche rug with its dynamic offset stripes makes this room up to date.
