Artistic Endeavor


John Saladino's cover on Veranda Magazine's January/February 2010 issue, is nothing short of brilliant. The Veranda show house, a townhouse condo complex located in New York's trendy Soho district, was to be decorated Cinema style. Saladino chose the artistic film, Girl with a Pearl earring, based on the artwork of 17c dutch painter Joannes Vermeer for his inspiration. Colours like lavender, lilac and periwinkle are instantly soothing cool stone and gray wash walls.




Lighting always plays an important role in any interior, and here the most delicate lighting adds another dimension of softness to this interior. Throughout the interior, furniture is carefully arranged in modern settings. Playing with scale, as in artwork below, and mirror at top of stair landing, add to the grandeur of this remarkable space.


Scaling down the interior to display only the finest selections of antique furnishings, rugs, artwork and textiles. The townhouse really does feel like a modern painting of traditional objects.



Second floor landing
Above and Below, an elegant master bedroom is so relaxed and inviting with these traditional European linens. This classic look is far departure from the many tapered and constructed master suites we are accustomed too, and it is a most welcome image in this artistic interior.
