Mario Buatta Redecorates Aileen Mehle's New York City Apartment : Architectural Digest

A guest room in a Mediterranean Revival–style house by architect Jeffery W. Smith in Indian Creek, Florida, gets its tropical air from bamboo-turned furnishings and a palm-frond printed fabric.

Large scale art. Place on large piece of wood to hide wall cut outs in the family room so the room could look more centered.

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.

The Georgian-inspired canopy bed Buatta designed for a client’s New York City pied-à-terre serves as “a separate room within a room,” the tastemaker says. A tulip-print fabric by Scalamandré is used throughout the space, which features carpeting by Stark and a mirror from Florian Papp. Buatta striéd the walls in a warm shade of apricot.

The ballroom features Mehle’s collection of 18th- and 19th-century mirrors and paintings, which overlook a Chinese low table by Gracie, an 18th-century Italian bergère (at right), and a sofa whose pillows are made of Scalamandré floral prints.
