I really appreciate designers who set out to create wow moments in their designs. In the case of Chad Dorsey and “the listening room” it’s this sumptuous deep red/burgundy wall colour with matching furniture (Ginger Snap by C2 Paint). In his “covid nights” bar area it’s another punchy colour enveloping everything but the floor. Birds in a ceiling alcove, and a massive brass hood with royal blue stove in an all white kitchen are just a couple more from his portfolio. WOW indeed!!!
Sundays are for lounging and dreaming. Perhaps dreaming of a faraway land where 17th century Grade I Georgian mansions prevail, in this case in the Suffolk countryside surrounded by an orangery, gardens, woodland, pool and pond, and are filled with treasures. I could dream all day long about how much potential this wonderous home has….. Location home available through Shoot Factory.
A very neutral colour palette with light wood, brass and some subtle bits of darkness…all with a touch of European flair make for such a relaxing and timeless pairing. Located in Edmond, OK, this beautiful home was designed with an English Revival style focus. The goal was to create a backdrop for balancing both beauty and function for this family. Pairing of old with new in many of the design elements, including a 200-year-old vintage Italian marble stone sink used in the powder bathroom. Vintage modern is a signature style of the Kelsey Leigh Design Co. brand this home is a perfect example of that.
What was once the very dated mid century Nashville home of country singer Tammy Wynette, is now a chic, hollywood glam meets contemporary cool and casual space with one of the sweetest pools I have ever seen. How much of a challenge would furnishing a home with so many curved walls be?! ‘TammyWood’ designed by Rachel Halvorson.
Wallpaper creates instant drama or texture in any space. Sure, it’s a commitment but if you’re brave enough it can work wonders. In the case of Mendelson Group Inc. it makes a frequent appearance and often times is used in a more subtle via grasscloth which adds such a warm texture and can be alot more subtle than using a print. In my home I have wallpaper in my foyer/staircase/upstairs hallway and almost 5 years later I could not love it more. Hopefully this post will be inspiration for you to try out some wallpaper in your home.
