a tiger sofa and more...

Do you remember Lee Radziwill’s iconic sofa that was upholstered in the most divine Scalamandré tiger-striped velvet? It’s legendary!

It was eventually handed down to her daughter-in-law Carole Radziwill and has been prominently featured on the Real Housewives of New York as the centerpiece of Carole’s SoHo apartment.

Well, this year, the shabby and well-worn 50+ year old sofa got a complete makeover and now lives on as a gorgeous blue sofa.

But the legend of the tiger sofa
lives on in Atlanta…

Enter Taylea Fowler,
whose obvious good taste quickly
caught my attention.

This striking blonde and her husband Robin
recently purchased this historic 1930's home 
in the Buckhead district of Atlanta, and
the starting point of the design
concept for their new home was a
Scalamandré tiger sofa, just like
the one that Lee made so famous!

And look at the rest of the décor!


This looks like my fantasy dream home!

More velvet anyone?

This little pink situation room
is the ladies’ lounge.

Her closet, amazing! 

And the stunning décor continues
outside in the pool pavilion.

Surrounded by nature’s pretty green,
how can anyone say no to sitting out here?

And sneak peek...

here’s the Fowler’s wedding photo
from their 2016 Mexican beach ceremony. 

Have a dreamy day…

ciao! fabiana
