Albert Hadley: the 50th Finest Room
There has been much notice of Albert Hadley's New York sitting room which is the last of the 50 featured rooms in my upcoming book, "The Finest Rooms in America." Pilar Valadas mentioned it first in her post for T Magazine/New York Times blog.
She states, "while many of the rooms are fairly grand in scale and furnishings, it is one of the smallest that that makes your heart beat faster: Albert Hadley's Manhattan intimate sitting room, an object lesson in understated chic, which Jayne rightly saves for last."
And then Katie Armour in her entertaining blog, responded after seeing the Times blog:
"This room by Albert Hadley... is my all-time favorite. I just adore the bold blue canvas, the wallpaper, the vignette on the table and well, all of it. Imagine my excitement when I spotted the never before seen (by me at least!) image [in the T-blog] after all these years, another little glimpse of my favorite room! Do you see how it's changed? The love affair continues..."
I was gladdened to see the well deserved interest. And so, here I offer for everyone's enjoyment some other views of Albert's sitting room that were not included.
