Holly Golightly Meets Walker Zanger

Connecticut based interior designer, Ally Coulter, was inspired by Breakfast at Tiffany’s for her second-floor salon space. Ally Coulter has created breathtaking interior spaces all over the world, reflecting her love for art and culture in her luxurious styling. Channeling her inner Audrey Hepburn and the 1961 Hollywood vibe, it came as no challenge for her to bring this enchanting space to life.

“It was wonderful creating a space for the modern day, Holly Golightly.  So exciting to have luxury partners like Walker Zanger, Tiffany and Jimmy Choo.”  - Ally Coulter

The salon features intricate silk embroidered wall coverings, custom Italian velvet sofas, and an antique chandelier adding glam to the timeless design. Lined along the walls are custom cabinets containing Calacata Caldia Luxe shelving, a marble tile just grand enough to support precious jewels, glamorous Tiffany accouterments, and fresh off the runway Jimmy Choo shoes and accessories.

Center stage stands a custom bar perfect for drinks and laughs featuring Dalmata Marble, also known as Panda White Marble, paired with bronze detailing. Selected and inspected from Italy to maintain reputation of beauty and quality, this bold, yet elegant surface is one of many natural stones available from Walker Zanger. "I approached Danna as I wanted a fabulous and luxurious slab for a bar area, and custom marble shelves for Tiffany and Jimmy Choo accessories." This chic panda pattern pays homage to Audrey Hepburn’s classic black Givenchy dress and pearl necklace. With Audrey in mind, and working alongside our Manhattan Showroom Manager, Danna Templeton, Ally selected and styled the marble slab to complement the Tiffany Blue and gold accents in the room.
