Nina Farmer Interiors
Shades of Gold in Connecticut
“Keeping the palette tight was an intentional design move,” says Nina Farmer, referring to the golden brown tones she used in the living room of a 1928 Westport, Connecticut, Mediterranean-style home. “I didn’t want the eye to get stuck on any single element in the space.” That said, the single elements (which add up to a compelling whole) are worth getting stuck on: the arcing sweep of the vintage standing lamp, the hour-glass silhouette of the stone side table (like the lamp, found on 1stDibs) and the complementary curves of the Mulholland caned chairs. Farmer’s curation of the Daniel Schneiger sculpture by the window, the Tina Barney photograph over the sofa and the Bernar Venet engraving above the limestone fireplace, custom-designed by the Boston-based Farmer, feels tight, too — and oh so right for the room.
