Orange + Black and White...


I was recently browsing Robert Passal's portfolio online when I came across his work from the annual "Kips Bay Decorator Show House" in 2005. Then I remembered this brilliant space with it's orange high gloss walls, and fell back in love with this it all over again...


Notice the center piece above the settee, so innovative how he layered art pieces over the mirror, and see how the mirror is mounted...

A nice lil surprise to the back of this chair...

Brilliant. Who knew orange could create such a lovely effect?

I don't know if it would produce a long term relaxing vibe in the house because colors such as orange and red are known to be non-relaxing.

His unique ways of displaying objects (mirrors, photos) are brilliant as well!

Unusual color scheme, but I love the orange, black & white. The light fixture is the icing on the cake.
