Classic spaces with modern touches that are unique, thoughtful and absolutely beautiful. This is Betsy Brown. A well suited home is a portrait of those who live within. The palette colored by life's experiences, a graceful segue from solitude to public life. It is a place where one feels effortless alone or in the company of friends. Such a home is our aim. Its creation begins with inquiry into the patterns of daily living, understanding what is nurturing, stimulating, calming—what feels like home. It requires inspection of cherished objects, and introspection into cherished experiences. We observe and absorb what is abundant and appropriate, and attend to what is lacking. We expand upon the authentic and delete the superfluous. Modernist sensibilities form the foundation while antiquities inform and balance, providing a delicate tension and subtle energy. The result is a home that genuinely reflects one's true nature. A home that feels like home.
As much as I love my dark and moody home sometimes along comes a house with a light, bright, modern palette that makes me re-assess my stance. How cool, how young and crisp. I particularly love that vibrant staircase! This Lincoln Park, Chicago home by Summer Thornton is a breath of fresh air.
Next to the definition of classic decor is a photo of Alabama interior designer Andrew Brown giving a thumbs up. This home is so elegant and sophisticated yes manages to be understated and even a bit masculine. In creamy whites and dark wood tones, it is really beautiful and so well curated.
