BLUE ROOM~1~~“If you don’t have a great room, covering it in one fabric can hide a multitude of sins,” Buatta says, describing this bedroom on Long Island’s North Shore. The space features a tropical print by Manuel Canovas that references the views of Long Island Sound. The blue-and-white color scheme is amplified by ceramics mounted on brackets and an assortment of cat-shaped cushions on the open-arm settee—a favorite Buatta design—at the foot of the bed.
For a snuff-color master bedroom in the Philippine capital of Manila, Buatta lined the theatrical bed’s carved-wood canopy with a shaped valance made from a flame stitch–pattern fabric by Old World Weavers. The same fabric shows up on a low chair, while textiles from Brunschwig & Fils upholster the settee and club chair.
