Designer Visions: Wall Street by Richard Hallberg

Of all the spaces at Designer Visions at The Setai, I was most excited to see the apartment inspired by Wall Street.  Interior designer Richard Hallberg designed the space for Veranda and imagined where Gordon Gekko would live after he was released from prison.  He would certainly still be collecting art and living well.  What I really love is that the black and white palette is punctuated by antiques and touches of gilt and gold that prevent it from looking too cold.  Richard says he “selected furnishings and decor that represented the ‘best of the best,’ mixing 18th-century furniture with contemporary pieces, modern art and Roman antiquities to produce a result that is timeless.” Hopefully, Gordon will stay out of trouble so he enjoy this apartment for a long time!

    I think Gordon Gekko would approve. The view alone is amazing! I especially love the white chaise lounge set by the window. What a relaxing place that would be. Lovely post. 🙂 Have a great weekend.

    Love this. Can totally see GG living here. The mix of stark black and white, contemporary art and ornate antiques are inspiring! Thanks for sharing.

    Best I have seen in a long time…I am wondering if the wallpaper in the bathroom is stock reports? Great place.

    I love the colour scheme. What would you call the gold/yellow that is used here with the black & white? I have been adding touches of it with my Charcoals & Greys and have been calling it “Vintage Yellow”. J

    Wow! I do love all of the choices. The Portuguese desk is amazing; the etageres, the art. Just wish it were a little warmer, but I guess that goes with the inhabitant’s personality. Mary
