I still have some things to finish in my Living Room, though it is coming together. I have ordered an Asian-motif rug from Stark and an going to have two side chairs redone...oh and I almost forgot....my designer, David Deatherage of Century Design tracked down a wonderful Paul McCobb cocktail table in Pittsburgh that is making its way to St. Louis for me.
The pictures below show the evolution of this room.
This is an early picture of this room when William Bernoudy was a bachelor and his mother was living with him.
This is the picture from the Bernoudy book and was taken after Bill Bernoudy had passed away and his wife, Gertrude, commissioned the book to be written.
And here is present day with my influence.
