Allen transformed the large, plain main room by painting it in Benjamin Moore's Split Pea. "I love green and purple together," he says. "It's very Palm Beach." Chairs in a Cowtan & Tout fabric. Curtains in a Kravet velvet.
One end of the open-plan room is anchored by a skirted table with an ever-changing array of objects. "The color of the Schumacher velvet bands echoes the green walls and helps tie the space together," Allen says. Skirt in Sandra Jordan's Prima Alpaca with Brunschwig & Fils fringe. Chairs by Albert Hadley.
Allen turned an alcove into an office with Ikea's Kallax shelves. The white chair and West Elm desk complete the setup. The wall-mounted TV can be viewed from the sofa. Chair seat in a Lee Jofa fabric.
Floor-to-ceiling curtains create a sense of height in the standard-size bedroom. Wall-to-wall carpeting was cut to replicate a custom-fitted rug. Curtains in a Rogers & Goffigon linen. Carpet, New York Carpet. Walls in PPG Pittsburgh Paint's Black Flame.
Covering the walls, headboard, and bed skirt in the same fabric - a striped Ralph Lauren Home silk - is a tried and true decorating solution for unifying a small room. Bedding from Leontine Linens.
Allen gave the tiny entry pizzazz by using large-scale pieces like a pair of ginger jars, a vintage mirror, and a Christopher Spitzmiller lamp. Walls in Farrow & Ball's Light Gray.
A bathroom was the perfect place to experiment with exuberant wallpaper, and its small size kept costs reasonable. Lyford Trellis wallpaper by China Seas.
