What inspired the lavender master suite? "You have to use restraint with purples. But we wanted to do something very calming—and we kept thinking about the soothing scent of dried lavender," David explains. "We found a rich Manuel Canovas floral for the drapes, so we needed to balance their intensity with softer hues. That's why we upholstered the walls in a frosty orchid shade. But our favorite piece in the bedroom is the Joseph M. Cintron portrait of a woman. Is she gorgeous or what?"

The fabrics for the canopy, bed skirt, and draperies are by Manuel Canovas from Cowtan & Tout. The bed(top left) is dressed with Leontine Linens from Bergdorf Goodman. The carpeting is from the Mitchell Denburg Collection. The painting, Head Up High by Joseph M. Cintron, is from the Richard Norton Gallery.
