At Home: Ali Wentworth

The other night while catching up on some blog reading I enjoyed Fabiana's living room quiz over at Ciao Newport Beach.  Of course I found a favourite which turned out to be from the Washington DC home of Ali Wentworth and George Stephanopoulos.  Naturally I had to go searching for more photos of their home.

Now as previously confessed, I am not a lover of purple but something about this room really works for me.  I love the built-ins, the contrasting white mantle and of course the grey velvet sofa.  The cocktail table is a vintage army cot topped with glass and Ali used fabric dye to create the patterns on the wool rug (just thought you should know this as it's rather ingenious don't you think).

I love how Moroccan pouffes work just as well in a sophisticated space as they do in a bohemian one.  If you love their look, you can pick them up here in Oz from Ada & Darcy and Table Tonic or from John Derian in the US.

OK so I personally can't come at all the shells and coral but they are a collection Ali has been adding to since childhood, so I get it.

Quite a masculine but very warm family room.  I love the wall panelling.

There's a lot to love about this dining room - again the built-ins, the wall colour, another beautiful mantle (and is that a Juju hat I spy Louise), the chairs (!), the old table...

The faux python console was found on eBay.  I seriously heart eBay!

The chairs in the office are flea market finds.  I think sadly my obsessive personality would not cope with the stuffing falling out of one like that but I want the wall colour for my very own, it's Winter Solstice by Benjamin Moore.   Yet another great mantle adorns this room (that's 4 so far peeps).

Love the bedside table and upholstered bench seat at the end of the bed here in the main bedroom.

  1. Man, all I wanted out of life was to marry George Stephanopoulos back in my DC college days. Then you would have been admiring MY beautiful home, Nicole. But I'd never be adventurous enough to dye my own rug design so the best girl obviously won.
