Today we are visiting a colourful apartment in Palm beach, Florida. The architectural design is by Peter Napolitano and Thomas Britt was in charge of the interiors.
Contemporary paintings—by Jim Dine, left, and Sigmar Polke—hang in the main gallery.
Boldly striped in two shades of blue, with a vein of orange snaking along in between, the antique dhurrie in the living room was cut down from a formidable palace rug. The painting is by Léger.
“I didn’t think the furniture should be super-formal,” says Britt, who “mixed it up” with Chinese, 18th-century Italian and 1940s French pieces. The 1999 painting is by Cecily Brown. Neoclassical chairs.
The dining area has an 18th-century Italian chandelier, a Chinese altar table and a pair of blue-and-white ginger jars. Sunset Sea, 1958, is by Milton Avery.
The designer added wainscoting, molding and recessed bookshelves in the study. The drawing, left, is a 1964 Picasso. Studio 54, 1976, is by Andy Warhol.
Pale blues in the master bedroom. The painting is by Larry Poons.
The designer created a casual dining area on a terrace overlooking the Atlantic.
