We didn’t have to look far to find a stand-out location for our March cover. Interiors expert Kara Mann designed this striking red dining room. Its lacquer walls took more than 600 hours to paint, and its ceiling is actually composed of hand-tinted True Metal Basketweave tiles by Maya Romanoff. “They are aged using a blow torch and preserved with beeswax paraffin to retain their appearance over time,” says Joyce Romanoff, president of the company. The custom finishes get the color just right, making the room the perfect space for a cover photo op.
