The Great Winter White Room (Francesco Lagnese)

With walls and ceiling painted Benjamin Moore's Winter White (used throughout the house), the voluminous great room of this California home "looks like the skeleton of a whale," designer Myra Hoefer says. The Cassiopeia chandelier from Ironware International, over the dining table, has a celestial scale. Ajax side chairs by Oly are pulled up to the Hollandaise table by Astier de Villatte, who also makes the armoire. These new pieces have a vintage air that blends right in with an 18th-century French bombé chest and a gilded antique barometre.
