WHEN INTERIOR DESIGNER COLLEEN FARRELL designed this dining room in a Bloomfield Hills home, her goal was to create a “warm and inviting classic dining room around the unusual color scheme of ice-blue and red,” she says. Farrell, who had worked on other rooms in the home, used the rug (the client’s own) colors as a jumping-off point. “The red walls are warm and enveloping,” says the Rochester-based designer, “and the ice-blue silk drapery (Stark silk and Samuel and Sons trim) is a wonderful juxtaposition at the windows.” The walls are painted in three shades of red, with an umber glaze. The chairs were the client’s own (similar fabric available at Scalamandre, Troy, and Brunschwig & Fils, Michigan Design Center, Troy ). colleenfarrelldesign.com
