Chad Dorsey Design

Posted on Mon, 5 Apr 2021 by KiM

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!!!

A 17th century Georgian mansion in England

Posted on Sun, 4 Apr 2021 by KiM

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.

Warm modern with a European influence

Posted on Thu, 1 Apr 2021 by KiM

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.

The power of wallpaper

Posted on Tue, 30 Mar 2021 by KiM

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.
