A traditional Thai butterfly floral silk print wallcovering was the starting point for this beautifully unique living room, and everything in the space flowed from that original choice.

The slipcovers and the wall hanging from Thailand were not the same, but with similar Eastern motifs, they had a very similar feel.

Nearly all of the solid colors in the room were derived from these vintage Asian patterns — the chocolate brown of the mod leather sofa, the warm brown of the wood tables, the smoky black glass tabletop, the black metal wall art, and the white table lamp and candlesticks. Even the stacked floor pillows featured colors pulled from the silk fabric.

The extra-long shaggy rug — colored the same grey beige as the background of the canvas wall painting — provided some wonderful texture that pleased the eye, and was also comfortable underfoot.

The only dash of another color in this room from 1971 was subtle: square blue glass jars with wooden tops, and shiny objects inside that glittered in the ambient light.
