At the boutique Mansfield Hotel, Andi Pepper designed the new prototype for the 124 guestrooms. Pepper’s clever millwork creates closets, desk space and storage cabinets, all matching a luscious headboard. Dark wood panel doors slide open to reveal a washing sink, and pocket doors hide the bathroom. Pepper has built in a setee at the bay window with high-contrast black and ecru materials; on a dark wood base she’s laid comfy cushions which sit on huge overstuffed pillows- black pearl velour and big cotton prints. In the lounge downstairs, Pepper’s new design works with the existing architecture, which includes crown moldings, a marble-mantel fireplace and a ceiling exactly the height of the room’s square dimensions. Pepper designed beautiful wood paneling to create the library shelving. She added tables topped with game boards (chess, backgammon, cribbage) and a central table hides four ottoman seats. Pepper designed a black iron chandelier with glass globes in the center of the space; similar sconces suggest gas-lit lighting. A thick carpet with a soft brown and blue pattern adds a sense of luxury and quiet.
