A Presidential Palette...

We were very sad to learn our favorite magazine Domino (& their brilliant website!) will be officially ceasing publication. So until they take down the site we will be trolling it top to bottom for every bit of design knowledge we can get!

Today we stumbled upon a summary by Nick Olsen, Domino’s Deal Hunter, of an awe-inspiring article originally in Architectural Digest comparing the decorating choices of Jacqueline Kennedy vs. Nancy Reagan. Standing out among the scenes is Nancy Reagan’s office. The perfect shade of celadon (& monochromatic carpeting), wonderful moldings and gorgeously staged botanical prints to the ceiling make this a room to take note of. We love how they put molding over a chic wallpaper below the chair rail & a separate vertical textured wallpaper above the chair rail.

The palette is youthful & playful enough for a growing kid’s room (or bathroom) and what a fun day you will have at the library checking out books on flora & fauna! Make color copies of pages that seem to peak your child’s interest and frame for an inexpensive and very educational wall-scape.
