We are delighted to feature Fawn Galli of Fawn Galli Interiors as our next Designer Spotlight. Fawn is no stranger to antique furniture: after living in Paris surrounded by wonderful art and antiques, she worked in the European furniture department at Christie’s in New York followed by experience with Robert A.M. Stern and Peter Marino. When she launched her own firm in 2007, Fawn established herself as a leader in the design field with an appreciation for art both traditional and contemporary. Her interiors are filled with colour, texture, and dynamism.
For a home in Kensington, Fawn placed an oversize rectangular giltwood mirror at the end of a hallway offset by light blue walls and parquet floors. The simple rectilinear lines of the mirror keep the look fresh and modern while also adding a touch of Old World elegance.
Fawn does not shy away from the use of colour or patterns–and we applaud her for it! In the above image, a traditional back stool inspired by the designs of Daniel Marot and the William & Mary aesthetic is framed by red and white toile wallpaper.
In this dining room, Fawn highlights a traditional oak refectory dining table with boldly carved legs. The table is paired with modern chairs and framed graphic prints fill the walls. The combination works beautifully together and demonstrates the value of finding one focal point for each room, whether it be a piece of furniture or work of art.
Fawn champions traditional architecture as well as furniture. In this Central Park West interior, the original parquetry floors and carved wooden walls serve as art in their own right while the crown mouldings and tiled floor in the near room stand out against the blue grey walls.
