Top Designer* Donna Hall Chicago Divine Project with KOKET
Chicago-based Top designer Donna Hall channels the dark glamour of 1920s Chicago in her latest interior design project featuring KOKET.
Since 2001, Donna Hall, principal of Donna Mondi Interior Design has been successfully creating interiors with a delicate fusion of European Classicism and American Modernism. In her most recent Chicago project, Hall’s inspiration is the sultry charm of Roaring Twenties Chicago, taking advantage of the unique architecture of the space. “The overall inspiration came from the era of the 1920’s in Chicago. I always take cues from the architecture of a space and then twist it in a modern way,” says Hall.
Her interiors are composed of bold elements layered with textures and patterns, but with a cohesive feeling that runs throughout the design. One of her noted design signatures is to play with the ceiling design or the “5th wall” as seen in the Dining Room of this project.
Hall covered the ceiling in an ethereal Maya Romano wallcovering while painting the surrounding walls in a glossy black lacquer to reect light throughout the oval shaped room.
The split Living Room also features a dynamic plaster ceiling, added to complement and downplay the striking portrait that immediately grabs your attention. The Master Bedroom ashes tones of gold and white, as apparent in the lively, vintage-vibe wallpaper.
To add some symmetry and balance to this playful space, Hall created matching scenes on either side of the replace featuring two custom KOKET Divine Armoires. The iridescent peacock feather armoires were custom made into chests, then Hall topped them with hung Art Deco mirrors, to adorn either side of the replace for luxurious his and hers spaces.
“I like to infuse interiors with elements from different periods and styles to create timeless, unpredictable surroundings. By merging traditional and contemporary styles, the end result is interiors with layered textures, avant-garde elements, and cutting-edge styling.”
The Divine Armoire is a brand favorite, not just for its exotic and appealing design, but for the message it conveys with its erotic presence. The alluring armoire is the perfect embodiment of KOKET as a brand, from its opulent natural iridescent peacock feathers to the irty gold ribbon handle, evocative of girlish innocence.
Hall’s favorite design trend of the moment is incorporating bold pops of color, seen throughout this interior design project specically in the girl’s bedroom. The colors mingling in the dramatic rabbit print wallpaper are mimicked in accessories around the room such as the fuchsia bedding and owers.
Her unpredictable yet timeless surroundings are something to be desired, as evident in her two Illinois oce locations and growing clientele. You can view more Donna Mondi Interior Design projects on her website.
