Greystone Mansion, Living Room and Dining Room, 2005
This room is finely decorated with two dining tables to serve 16 guests. The cloths are silk, with Russian- style china, Chinese salt & pepper shakers with black pearls, Lalique center pieces and Baccarat crystal. The chairs are a unique combination of white leather and embroidered silk. The elegant chandelier was restored for this Showcase for which Suzanne provided long candle stems and silk lampshades, adding extra crystals befitting the style and proportion of the room. The ceiling has been faux painted in a rich turquoise to complement the elegant silk draperies and other fabrics and textures in the room. The seating area in the bay window was a great place for aperitifs and conversation after dinner.
