Pretty Never Goes Out of Style – March-April Veranda 2013
The cover of this month’s Veranda features a gorgeous classic Jeffersonian design for a Georgetown home by Frank Babb Randolph. Love the 1790’s grisaille Zuber screens which was one of our classical trends for 2013.
If you love this look it can be created today by a decorative painter.
The home was built in 1959 with a Federal inspired design which lacked “gravitas” according to the project architect Christian Zapatka, so they added classical crown moldings, baseboards and niches to replace bookshelves. The changes created in my view beautiful ‘walls’.
Another trend is the use of an upholstered headboard which Babb chose.
Another beauty in this issue is Pamela Pierce’s Houston makeover. Love these upholstered beds.
Another trend predictor white marble.
Veranda’s color palette is perfect with a monochromatic whole house palette.
A wonderful issue packed with great ideas, events and products.
