Holiday House Sitting Room by Bjorn Bjornsson
This posh, paneled sitting room is one of the highlights of the Academy Mansion’s period architecture, but the result of dark wood paneling is a room that can be very dark. Enter Bjorn Bjornsson with a compelling primer on making a dark space bright and welcoming. Mixing sparking crystal, silver and snowy white elements he frosts the room with a glass “ice table” while crystal logs and a custom metal starburst fireplace screen adorn a fireplace. Mirrors abound creating pools of reflected light, and custom furniture by Christopher Guy beckons you to relax on this Snow Day.
