Hutton Wilkinson's new house is featured in the March issue of Harper's Bazaar, and does it shine like a cocktail ring! The house is decorated in vibrant hues of jewel tones with an eclectic mix of patterns. Here you can see a stunning gilded bamboo mirror against chinoiserie wallpaper.

An interview with Style Compass at 1st Dibs tells us he likes strong, clear, jewel colors. - Amethyst, peridot, citrine, ruby, emerald, sapphire... no muddy browns or reds - the color of dried blood please! We like brilliant shiny gold,and sometimes a dull bronze to set things off. My idea of a beige room is one painted coral with emerald green accents. Tony Duquette used to say ''Green is a neutral color." I agree with him"
In this picture, French Provincial chairs are painted a coral pink, with a wall color in the same hue. A red floral arrangement is placed against the wall in a deeper tone.
Here you can see a brilliant color combination using pastel mint green paired with emerald acents, and upholstered red and white framed french chairs. In the background of this interior we see all red painted furniture with red upholstery. This color combination is the best presentation of red I have seen to date.
Here you can see the power of matching the upholstery up with the paint color. Here he combined a red painted french provincial chair with the same color of upholstery as well as the coordinating color used in the table cloth. Glossy finishes are very popular in Hollywood Regency decorating. You can see a very shiny rich finish is used on the frames of the chairs. A slightly different hue of orange us used in the painted screen that sits behind the table. A leopard print rug ties everything together.
