Part of the The Met x Ann Gish collection, the Egyptian Faience Pillow draws inspiration from Egypt’s Old Kingdom period. “Pillows can add immediate personality to a home and a great way to freshen up a space,” Pasquale shares. “This piece reimagines the shades of azure in a jacquard with embroidered lines.”
Pretty in Pink
The Heron Print Wallpaper by Gucci is influenced by the brand’s ready-to-wear collection and depicts the birds with dragonflies scattered throughout. “Large scale wallcoverings are a great way to create dramatic backdrops in large scale homes with tall ceilings,” Pasquale advises. “Install is wall to wall or within applied moldings to create dramatic spaces.”
“This Nizwa Three-Door Cabinet statement piece designed by Bethan Gray Shamsian for EJ Victor is a remarkable craftsmanship with its smokey gray gradient-stained birdseye maple and scalloped metallic inlay,” Pasquale describes. “It’s jewelry for the home. I love to use unique cabinetry like this in dining rooms and living areas to create a dramatic moment. It can quickly elevate the look of a room using this and allow the rest of the room to be quiet and understated.” Custom colors are also available.

Create unexpected opulence with the dazzling Elie Sconce by Corbett Lighting. “These wall sconces are sculptural interpretations of seashells and pearls,” Pasquale notes. “The vintage polished brass and opal matte glass finishes create a soft glow of light and artistic whimsy.” Use in an entry foyer to anchor the room and set the tone for the home’s personality. “Always on dimmers,” adds Pasquale.
Perennials is known for fabrics, rugs and other plush comforts. The Painter’s Palette Tibetan Knots design can be created in custom dimensions with custom patterns and colors to fit any space. “These rugs are handmade performance rugs that are soft and luxurious yet made to hold up to whatever mess your family and fur babies leave behind,” Pasquale explains. “Easy to clean, these one-of-a-kind rugs last a lifetime and remain as vibrant as the day of arrival.”
