in interiors as in fashion, i admire a designer who isn’t afraid of color — and lots of it. (i’ll admire it’s an approach i’m struggling to incorporate into my own style!) interior designer frank roop is a mastermind when it comes to originating bold color palettes and leaving his signature touch on each space he creates.
roop makes a stunning staircase even better: there’s wainscoting on the walls, navy velvet on the bench, and a richly hued rug on the herringbone floors.
who else could make beige walls, white trim, forest green chairs, an acid green ottoman, a turquoise desk, and a fuchsia bench look this good? his work is truly one-of-a-kind.
a pretty little vignette from the room above.
he does love that acid green, doesn’t he? the vignette on the sofa table is to die for: crystal lamps, decorative boxes, and petits objets d’art.
is that turquoise tile i spy in the kitchen? here roop employs a gorgeous chandelier to draw attention to the beamed ceilings, one of my favorite features!
another room, another gorgeous light fixture. i love the unique shelving to either side of the fireplace.
a lime green lampshade is roop’s finishing touch for an otherwise more subtle space.
he does know how and when to take it down a notch, however. how beautiful is this living room? we’ve got colorblock curtains, various blue hues for fabrics (see the subtle variation of the throw pillows on the sofa), and lighting that illuminates the space in more ways than one.
what do you think of roop’s aesthetic? who are a few of your favorite interior designers?
