Forest Whimsy from Fawn Galli

House Beautiful featured this whimsical Greenwich Village prewar house that was transformed into an "enchanted forest" theme by designer, Fawn Galli. The client wanted something fairy-tale-dreamy and used the book, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe as inspiration in which the characters emerge from the back of the wardrobe. Great wallpapers and colors are used throughout the house. Which room is your favorite?

In this apartment the front door opens to a white entry hall lined with birch-print wallpaper which sets the tone for the winter forest theme.

Cole & Son Lily Wallpaper in the bedroom. Love the variety of green fabrics in the room and of course the gorgeous french canopy chair.

Lucite dining room table "disappears" allowing the blue chairs to be the showcase of the room

Beautiful girls room with lucite chair and desk

This was one of my favorite magazine covers which features another angle of the master bedroom


  1. I have presented the wallpaper in the first image several times, but never actually installed it. lovely images!

  2. Delightful mix of colors and patterns. What a joy to live in a GV prewar!

  3. I loved this house, too. Here's what I'm drooling over: the floors, wallpaper, lucite table, chairs , accent colors throughout...everything!

  4. I am in love with the butterfly wallpaper!

  5. Hard to choose, they're all so beautiful. I really love the dining room with the lucite table and gorgeous blue chairs!
