One of my favorite interiors ever featured in domino was the home of Laura Vinroot Poole, designed by Barrie Benson (February 2007). So I was thrilled to see Barrie's own home on the cover of the new October issue; online, she also "narrates" a slideshow of her work, which showcases additional photos of the Vinroot Poole residence that did not appear in the magazine.
The wall arrangement of plates shown above is such a great image! It's going directly onto my inspiration board...I remember catching a glimpse of it in a mirror in one of the original magazine photos, so I'm happy Barrie thought to include a full-scale shot in the slideshow.
I really loved the mix of furnishings and colors in the sleek wood-paneled living room (pictured immediately above).
The guest bedroom shown above took its inspiration from a twin bed arrangement originally designed by Tom Scheerer. Check out Style Court's great side-by-side comparison of the Scheerer- and Benson-designed rooms.
Custom monogrammed Leontine linens are used throughout the home's bedrooms. So classic and elegant, I love how they contrast with the bold Jean Royere wall sconce in the master bedroom.
Be sure to check out Barrie's commentary, and view her other favorite projects, in the slideshow.
