House of Style

One of these jewels is the "Audrey" room, fabulously outfitted in Kelly Wearstler's green-and-white Imperial Trellis pattern—on all of the walls and upholstered pieces—that is broken up only by a single black and white photo of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's. "It's classic but fresh, a different way to approach designing," Scalo explains. "I don't like big poofy-woofy. You can have elegance without being overly decorated. I don't like spaces to look like a decorator just left there."

But while the interior successfully reflects the homeowner's personality, Scalo's quiet imprint is detectable throughout. For example, each room is dotted with a chandelier—some elaborate (such as the one-of-a-kind crystal flower fixture in the bedroom) and some classic but with a fresh update (as in the living room's Fortuny silk-tiered piece). All, however, are a little unexpected, like much of the decor in the rest of the house.

"I like to think of each fixture as a piece of sculpture in a space," says Scalo. "It may sound pretentious, but it's true. Each piece I put in there has to create a whole, and something beautiful. You are given a certain constraint with a room, and within this context you have to make something a little bit magical."
