“This house inspired me to think of 1930s Screwball Romanic Comedies,” said Stallings. Nothing short of Technicolor, the space is alive with vibrancy. It’s hard to imagine, but the Paul Smith rug from the Rug Company actually anchors the space. A playful oil painting by Peter Opheim is the room’s crown jewel, resting above furnishings from Coup d’Etat.

Lapointe fell in love with Fireclay’s matte-finish Hunter Green subway tiles that line the walls.

In the nursery, a continuous and well-manicured lemon orchard comes to life in hand-painted, sequin-embellished wallpaper by de Gournay—a chic and gender-neutral wall option. A lattice-work ceiling and custom Coleen & Company chandelier add to the lush garden motif, which is offset with a sleek Plexi-Craft custom lucite four-poster crib.

It would be easy to “rosé the day away” in this lounge inspired by the pink French wine. A geometric marble-and-walnut cocktail table from Noble Goods centers the room, while a midcentury-style gondola sofa by Adrian Pearsall rests nearby. Mix in one 1950s swivel chair from Milo Baughman and a delightfully abstract Fiona Curran “Zap” rug from The Rug Company for the perfect blend.
