Eclectic style from a global designer.
Muriel’s 1993 New York sublet was the home that ignited her love of interior design. Surrounded by faux-marble walls that she could not repaint, Muriel got creative and covered the space with rich textiles she had collected from the garment district, as well as objets d’art collected from around the globe.
Muriel was excited to decorate her 1996 home — a lovely three-storey New York town house. The soothing palette of soft yellow and mint green draws attention to the spectacular architectural details and high ceilings. A wood lantern from Vietnam hangs over a nineteenth-century wood pedestal table from Holland. Muriel framed the doorways connecting to the first-floor landing with silk-brocade curtains.
Muriel’s 2010 home features quieter tones of silver, pearl grey and gold. In her living room, she covered the walls in a shimmery grey fabric, adding depth and warmth to the space. Made from a single block of rock crystal, the Bing One side table by Martin Szekely is a sparkling showstopper.
In this library, an Osvaldo Borsani P40 lounge chair is flanked bya pair of Sleep-o-matic sofas by Marco Zanuso. Front panels covered in colourful Maharam fabrics brighten the DeKast shelving by Michel Doyer.
This New York City home’s focal point is a quirky armchair by Ico Parisi, which reflects the shape of the Italian glass-top wooden coffee table.
Muriel designed this Southampton home with clouds and water in mind. In this media room, she chose a Slice sofa by Pierre Charpin upholstered in cashmere colors inspired by men’s suits.
In this principal bathroom, Muriel covered an accent wall in the ‘Blades’ motif, which was designed by Christopher Brooks and hand-beaded in Vietnam. A sculptural purple stool is a playful addition to the room and picks up on the lavender tones found on the printed walls.
