As many blues as the waters of the Caribbean was the color treatment of the beautiful and elegant drawing room shown here — a symphony in subtle blues and jade green.

As it was seen back in the 1930s, all was brilliant, with contrast and glitter; here, complete harmony, quiet tones, and an engaging treatment.

Blues — gray-blues, violet-blues, green-blues, purple-blues, slate-blues — had been combined with the greatest skill, all blending perfectly and all emphasized by a few notes of vivid green.

All the charming small bibelots — those charming and useful trifles that make a room individual and livable — down to the tiniest ashtray, were in varying shades of blue, carefully thought out, and each exactly right in the place it occupies.

The only contrasting notes are the furniture, mainly in 18th Century French, Empire and Biedermeier styles in light fruit woods.

This room was in the New York house of Mrs Robert A Lovett, and it is seen here as it was in 1933. The decorating was done by Mrs Lovett herself, and the architect was Harold Sterner.
