Lavender Fields

The dining room is awash in Benjamin Moore’s Majestic Mauve, a pale lavender that Berman extended over the millwork—a more modern approach than traditional contrasting trim. A glam mix of metals includes vintage Milo Baughman chairs (reupholstered in a high-quality faux leather for durability), a vintage Gino Sarfatti chandelier from OLC in Philadelphia, and a mantel of copper curiosities.
