Soft Green Bedroom

Drapes and walls in the same pattern have a calming effect.

New York City philanthropist and socialite Brooke Astor approached legendary interior designer Albert Hadley to transform her bedroom with fabrics by Alan Campbell. She was madly enthusiastic about Campbell's hand-blocked cotton prints. His designs were the foundation of the room's springy pale green and ivory colour palette. The walls were clad in a small-patterned fabric that was applied like wallpaper. The green is anchored by white trim and a soft white carpet, keeping the room bright and fresh.
