David Cafiero

David Cafiero is an interior designer, and gallery/antiques owner whose amazing work has been featured in Lonny, House & Garden, NY Daily News, and WWD to name a few. He is a former New England commercial scallop fisherman who hates television, rarely uses a computer and ran a Soho cafe business before opening his Manhattan East Village art gallery/antique store, Cafiero Select. Some of my favorite images below showcase his great use of color and mixing patterns.

Kelly green walls and wallpapered ceiling complete with framed vintage natural curiosities prints.

Brunschwig & Fils wallpaper covers the room with the pops of yellow. The wallpaper was used to hide some architectural quirks such as a sloping ceiling.

Neutral Schumacher sea grass wallpaper used as neutrality throughout the house to showcase the owners works of art. The texture of the sea grass is forgiving masking nail holes easily as the owners moved the art around.

Love the painted architectural details and the dark wood flooring.

Pop of pink from the small ottoman draws your eyes down instead up to the tv above the mantel.

Coral chair pops against the grasscloth

Beautiful outdoor pool

One of my fave pictures! Wallpapered entryway. I hope the bike always stays there.

Great use of smaller hallway

Accent table with assorted oil paintings propped up. Notice the same wallpaper from the walls is on top of the desk under the glass.

Using empty Diptyque candle jar to hold pencils/pens
