Famed decorator Carleton Varney is having another moment, this one bigger, brighter and more beautiful than the last. HIs latest book, Mr. Color, is a vibrant homage to two of his greatest projects, the Greenbrier in West Sulphur Springs, West Virginia and the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan. For a year now, we’ve had the honor of working with Mr. Varney’s son Sebastian, creating windows for the New York City outpost of fabric house Carleton V. Their newest collection mixes prints, embroideries and wovens to dazzling effect! Check out our Moroccan-inspired retreat, just in time for the winter chill! Huge thanks also to Kristen Tilly Foster for making all of the fabric hangings and pillows. She’s an incredible talent who does all of Carolyne Roehm’s work. Enjoy!
Love that feel Eddie….. I too have been working the window displays this year.Fun, creative outlets and little vignettes to design and furnish! H.H….

Hi Eddie and Jaithan: Beautiful window! Come by and see Liza and the girls with me in Paris! Also, Dovecote has a huge giveaway on the Art by Karena blog–a fabulous faux tortoise shell chest. I was in the D and D on monday, but snuck up the stairs and missed the window.
Great pillows! Another winning window!
Wow so cool, my husband and I were married at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island so this was fun to read!
Enjoy your weekend!

Hi Eddie, what an inviting window, I love the mix of fabrics, anxious for more. hugs ~lynne~
Absolutely fabulous (as always)! I need to check out the book!
Love it Eddie! I just bought one of his scarves for my mother-in-law for Christmas. His CD is amazing too. Ms. Draper would be proud you. I hope you and Jaithan have a great holiday season!
Absolutely beautiful! Love the continuity of pattern and design Eddie.
what stunning colors in the Carleton V collection…am loving the soft grays and soft terra cotta colors..stunning designs..
Those fabrics are incredible. What a beautiful job on the window. Love it. Want it! Have a good weekend.
Stunning ! I am on a mini vacation just looking at it;) Hope your holidays are sparkly !!!
what a wonderful retreat this is! the mix of the patterns is just gorgeous!
oh, fabulous. One of those windows you just want to live in. Thank you for the intro, I am on the hunt for new fabrics. xo ebh
Firstly, what a stunning matching job on the upholstery.
Love the scale and the color. I love how calm and peaceful it looks.
Love the silver tones and grey’s in this window along with the rug……
It’s really interesting to see how fashion and interior design have seasons and tastes…
thanks for checking out my blog…
The window is gorgeous. Moroccan yet timelessly French somehow.. though of course the two cultured do cross over, so perhaps it all makes sense.
I love these patterns and the softness of the terracotta. Stunning and all in such good taste. As usual!
Lots of love to you and J.
Just beautiful! That embroidered pillow is to die for!
Those pillows are so amazing. Nicely done!
Absolutely beautiful!! I love the grays and soft corals…a combo you don’t see much, if at all, in Moroccan design, it’s just so pretty, thanks for sharing!
(My mom and I really appreciated your sweet comment, thank you…it lifted her spirits tremendously, you both are angels!)
Absolutley chic & beautiful dahhhling…loved the color palette.
It really does have the Morrocan look. I hope you got to go there for research! I bicycled through it a few years ago. It was a long month.
Wonderful greys and whites and that soft coral pink-orange. Manages to be audacious and calming at the same time. Clever!
OOOH, wonderful fabrics…lovely. Are you guys just crazy busy right now? XO, Mona
You two never disappoint…the window is stunning, as always!!
Hello! I love the color combinations of the fabrics. I am a big fan of grey and like how it was used. So femine and exotic!
Have a great day!
Love it…so beautiful, refined and fresh! xx Danielle
Eddie it’s just lovely. The wallpaper is stunning! I hope you are well! xo Susan
Oh, I love your Carleton windows. This one just screams “vacation” to me. Very nice.
What a pretty display with a beautiful collection of textiles. The colors are gorgeous… so soft. I’ll be sure to check out Varney’s book. Thanks for the inspiration!
Very beautiful. Got to grab a copy of his book soon. Thanks for sharing. Nice blog too!
oh WOW!!!!!!!! Ilove this!!!!!!! mouthwatering.
hope all is well with you too – have a wonderful holiday season.
I am continually pleased and amazed at your incredible talents. You are a true artist. The window is wonderful. Sewing is impeccable. Bravo to you and your team.
Simply stunning. I am sure Carleton V is thrilled with your work.
Great job on the windows! Thanks for stopping by RHS. You all are the best! Keep inspiring daily please my friends!
That’s not really a couch right? Looks like a table or am I wrong?
Just getting around to checking up on blogs –– this is FABULOUS, E&J!!!!!!!!!!!! Good God, I want to jump right in. You do such a great job for CV and and even better job showcasing how versatile his line can be. **I think what is so charming is that in the colorways you chose, this is as relevant, youthful and uptown as it is Morrocan –– certainly has a lot of dexterity. Pulled it off beautifully, sirs.
Happy New Year!
Saw that at D&D, wow.. just another reason to love Carlton V fabrics!! Fabulous job!!
