Standing in the check out line, I was captured by this cover of athome magazine. The modern painting, by Janet Slom, is juxtaposed perfectly above the twin French ballroom chairs. What else might there be, I wondered? I tossed the magazine on top of my Fage yogurt and bananas and looked forward to getting into the carpool line early, so I could read more.
The interiors did not disappoint.
Designed by homeowner, Leslie Cohen, there is a lightness and a restrained perfection to her Westport, CT home. I love the slabs of Italian marble in the kitchen, the old fashioned pendant lights and the textural balance of the farm table and rattan chairs.
An oversize photograph of horses nuzzling. I’m smitten.
Cohen knows how to edit for impact. She carefully chooses the “best in class” accessories.
Mostly though, her design reflects a love of home. You can see Leslie’s sources and more rooms here.
Imagine you could pick a room in your home for the cover of a magazine… which one would it be?
