Anatomy of a Scandal: The Interiors

Over the weekend I finally indulged in a Netflix binge (it’s been a beat or two since I’ve done that) with Anatomy of a Scandal.  Many of you had messaged me insisting I see it just for the interiors- and well, that was the best part! Next to Sienna Miller’s chic, minimalist wardrobe and impossibly tousled hair coming in a close second.  I found the show to be predictable and trying too hard- but it was engrossing and fun to watch. And the HOUSE! I love a set that has multiple rooms wallpapered. In this show, practically every room (most being Cole & Sons.)  It’s a study in good, classic English decorating with lots of millwork and mouldings, collections of art, a great kitchen, fireplaces and traditional details.

While The Cole & Sons Woods paper is a bit overplayed at this stage, this kitchen was fun. I loved the green cabinetry, the simple wood counters and all the windows. But mostly, I was OBSESSED with the iron and glass sliding doors closing it off from the sitting room/ family room.

This is a terribel shot but you can see the sliding door behind Sienna and her pizzas. It’s such a genius way to close off a kitchen without reducing visibility or feeling “shut in/out”.

There is a real lack of images available of the interiors- they have a pretty bird and branch type paper in their foyer and then in the office this very traditional  damask style paper.

The dining area off the kitchen is one of my favorite spots- with this amazing corner couch/ banquette situation in a pattern and great wall moulding.

The family room/ library in between the kitchen and the formal living room- the dark painted millwork is SO good- and all the books! I love when clients have a ton of books and make them part of the decor.

No good shots of their bedroom- which is LOVELY and sumptuous. Especially the bathroom with the soaker tub flanked by full length drapes! I’ve done drapes behind a tub once and it looked great and want to do it in my new primary bath too!

The bathroom drapes I did a couple years ago….

Here are some items that reminded me of the look of the Whitehouse residence:

But also…. her clothes. Sienna is such a stunner and her hair, makeup and clothes were all understated and perfect. For another day….
