Elena Frampton has a knack for creating truly unique environments. The New York-based founder of Frampton Co takes a fully integrated approach to her projects, using an eclectic mix of bold prints, tactile textures and modern artwork to foster spaces that exude comfort and warmth. temper.
Its flat lay – replete with plush materials and unruly lines – is no exception. Frampton says she designed the palette with “a space for early evening aperitifs” in mind. “I just got back from Paris and was inspired by the opulently layered patterns,” she says Home business. “The ornamentation, pattern, color and richness are so prevalent and yet so versatile.”
Although a colorful pattern by Christian Lacroix served as the starting point for the project, Frampton layered an array of tactile earth-toned textiles to strike the balance between livable and luxurious. “I chose complementary lining and graphic elements, mixed metal and wood accents,” she says. “And how dreamy it is, a surreal mirrored blue bar, the way we do it.”
Here, Frampton breaks down the details, from black and white chenilles to blush-hued mohairs.
