Living decor

Designed by American architect, Hugh Newell Jacobsen, this modem house in Athens takes its basic form from classical Greek buildings. Mirror is used with dramatic effect in the dining-room, reflecting Andy Warhols huge painting of a crucifix. 3 The monumental colonnaded walkways and cross-beams play on light and shade, and conjure images of the Parthenon. 4 The dining-room leads to a small library. Their bright colours and abstract forms are displayed to full advantage against the plain walls but, despite their dominance, the room avoids becoming a gallery by the clever arrangement of furniture. Set back-to-back in the middle of the marble floor is a pair of commodious sofas, forming two seating-areas, completed with Louis XlV-style gilt chairs and marble-topped and metal occasional tables.
