LIVING BY DESIGN: Make the best of a view
SILK TAFFETA CURTAINS EMBROIDERED IN BLUE, with an unstructured blind behind to guard against glaring light or sunlight. In the foreground, crushed velvet and blue check--also velvet--cover the chairs, the blue relieved by pistachio green, silk cushions. The walls in this New York apartment are stencilled blue on blue. The colour scheme harmonises, or contrasts with, the green trees of Central Park beyond and the grey, staggered skyscrapers .
