Mayfair

video






I was going through Ralph Lauren's home decor section, and came across this beautiful "Mayfair" collection that (I thought) perfectly embodies modern elegance and undertones of 1940s glamor. This sophisticated look features such well-tailored furniture, layered with touches of silver and pewter metallics, natural materials, and black and creams. I can practically hear classical music...

I cannot begin to pick out all of my favorite details within these images...the columns, the extensive moulding work, the roses, the canopy, etc. I could go on and on! These pretty rooms remind me to appreciate the timeless classic metal finishes. What are your thoughts on this look?

  3. Jackpot is an amazing line! I'm very excited! The quality is excellent and their designs are consistently beautiful, I find ~ I believe it was my first year of working for you that I changed all my hangers over :) lol

  4. Sarah-This is a brilliant post because I detest white rooms, and usually speed by as fast as I can. But these are gorgeous-the addition of the black, cream, gray, and texture makes them so elegant and glamorous. But Ralph could make a room decorated out of bubble wrap and newspaper look good.

  8. This is fantastic Sarah - and very coincidental - I have had photos 2,4 and 6 in tearsheets for a while now. So simple, chic and sophisticated - and I'm always a sucker for black and white.
    Beautiful post!

  16. I love this classic and elegant look Sarah, although as I slowly use and discard my 3 white couches I would think again before buying another white couch-haha.
