Gracie Mansion Dining Room

Intricate wall murals add a playful vibe to this traditional room.

During the Koch administration in the 1980s, interior designer Albert Hadley was on a committee to redecorate the official residence of New York City's mayor. The antique paper he selected for the walls was printed by Parisian company Zuber in the 19th century. The glam chandelier, heavy dining chairs and elaborate fireplace mantel seem less formal when paired with such a bold mural.
