Since America is captivated at the moment, and rightfully so, by the arrival of Pope Francis, I thought I would feature one of the cities he has chosen for his visit. Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love, is a wonderful display of culture, history, and American values. It is a city with rich roots in our country and a wonderful population representative of present-day society.
Today, I chose to feature a home in Philadelphia that is the perfect juxtaposition of classic American style incorporated with contemporary elements. Decor is by Jayne Design Studio. Photography is by Roger Davies via Architectural Digest.
My personal photo of the people’s pope from my trip to Rome and the Vatican, Summer 2014.
You know how much I love a white house with a black door.
A classic entry with contemporary art.
Interesting wall color combined with traditional and timeless furniture.
More modern art.
Can we talk about this green? I love this green! It is a mix of Kelly, Forrest, and creamy Jade.
Modern art sits upon a hand painted wallpaper display. I love the use of green on the panelings and in the velvet of the chairs.
I am a sucker for a white kitchen, but this is incredibly suitable and well finished.
A marble tulip table adds a more current element of furniture with classic chair design. I would never think to put the two together!
I would probably live in this room. The ambience is everything.
A soft gray retreat. Nothing overdone, but full of warmth.
