Blushing Beauty From Corey Damen Jenkins

Blush can be a lovely base for an understated space; it can also form the foundation of a more saturated (and strident) message. “The color palette for this room was inspired by Valentino’s 2016 runway fashion show in Paris,” designer Corey Damen Jenkins explains. “I reinterpreted this space from its original 1922 'Gentleman’s Study' origin to a 21st century 'Ladies’ Library'; I believe women are the true cradle of human civilization — and deserve a command center of their own.”

A Charming Ocean Scene

This old-school Cole & Son Acquario wallpaper was designed by Piero Fornasetti, a Milanese artist who began making prints in the 1930s; Jenkins referenced that history in the accessories he chose to complement it. “This guest bath is a whimsical celebration of vibrant color, organic nature and Art Deco flair. The mirror is an antique [from the] early 1930s and brings a touch of vintage to the space,” he says.

I figured, like art, why not display them,” she recalls. “The surrounding room features were modern and clean, so we continued this feeling with simple pegs and a minimal frame mirror.” That creative solution is now the suite’s signature element.
