Mrs. Joel Lives for a Day
Katie Lee Joel's dressing room in March's Town and Country reads like a jewelry box from the Deco era. Designer Nate Berkus and architect Ahmad Sardar-Afkhami used $25,000 worth of gold-leaf transform a 105 sq. ft. vestibule between the master bedroom and bath into a glimmering, 1930's style boudoir.

"We wanted it to be a place where the act of dressing would be heightened to an exquisite ritual." -Ahmad Sardar-Afkhmi
To that I say, "mission accomplished". The soft blue-greens and golds remind me of another glamorous interior that has been in the press lately.
Scene still from Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day.
It seems that Berkus, Sardar-Afkhami and Sarah Greenwood, production-designer for the upcoming Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, had similar sources of inspiration. (Habitually Chic has more on that subject).
