Prettiest Painted Room in America


A narrow stripe done in shades of turquoise and pale green, this room has a look that’s decidedly “pretty." Or so it was judged in the Rohm and Haas Paint Quality Institute's "Prettiest Painted Room in America Competition."

The room started off white but was transformed into a media room by Interior Designer and psychology Ph.D, Penny Drue Baird. She used wainscoting and beadboard applied in varying directions to create the award winning style.

Harris_100We happen to think the runner-up room by designer Karen Harris is far more impressive with its abstract rainbow theme. But "pretty" is pretty subjective, so what do you think? Do you agree with the judges choice of the prettiest painted room in all of the United States?

Comment on This Article Here! Prettiest Painted Room in America:

design in the home never touched me untill i saw the excellent article by sian ballen and lesley hauge in new york social diary..this woman penny drue baird is in my eyes a perfect ten in her vocation.when i saw the 1st photo by Jeffrey Hirsch i wanted to see more and i admit that having a love of books swayed it, just, on the library room as my favourite.All i can say is it is the kind of library i would never want to finish a book in and when i have finished reading it, i would choose another as i put the last book on the shelf..every room was in such a style to suit every ones taste in my view, and what a view she gives..she could make the bin shed look like a romantic gazebo with her mind..she is definately up there with the best,and not really knowing the noted designers i suppose to me,she is 'THE BEST' and if not, she should be..
