space: a red office in NYC by John Saladino

Let's just take a moment and take in all that red, shall we?! Do you love this space as much as I do? It's the office in a Manhattan home, a John Saladino design. This turned out to be his clients' favourite room, and I totally understand why. I think it's the mix of red and white/soft colours. If you, for example, imagine that gallery wall with black frames the effects would be completely different. I find the mix of cushions very stylish and the tray-vases combination on the coffee table is right up my alley. By the way, the sofa is made of two adjacent twin beds, which easily turns this space into a guest room.

This home was featured in Elle Decor and the article states that in every room "simple furniture shapes and solid-color upholstery" can be found, something "Saladino believes to be timeless." The designer is quoted saying:
I don't like a lot of curves—all that modern furniture that looks like a collection of marshmallows … So much decorating today is in-your-face—the wow factor. I like holding back. I'm more interested in what you leave out than in what you put in.
In this room he certainly didn't hold back when it came to colour! The red wallpaper is by Maya Romanoff and the furniture is by Saladino Furniture, with leather by Keleen.
