Mark Hampton. A dark living room with beautiful paintings and moulding. Blue was added to the brown paint, a trick used by designer Billy Baldwin when he wanted to avoid too much of a chocolate color. The furniture was all re-upholstered in a cream cotton from Brunshwig & Fils. Photo by Peter Vitale.
