The garden at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 leads to a final vignette, designed by Kate Webster and Thayer Hopkins, to inspire and encourage reflection. A brick path draws the eye toward the abstract, mirrored sculpture that reflects light and creates the illusion that the pillars are also decorated with the flowers.
Blush-colored roses bloom on the opposite side of the space, creating a display that distracts from the sleek black TV. A textured buffet table below offers storage for DVDs and complements the room's jewel-toned furnishings.
In a smaller bedroom, a dramatic color can have the cool effect of making the space feel cozier. Eggplant purple coats the walls and ceiling in this apartment bedroom with surprisingly intimate results.
A unique deep purple dining room features heavy drapes and matching valance on large window with sheer curtain; an ornate crystal glass chandelier; a silver metallic sideboard, a gleaming oval dining room table; and six twisted, gold leaf, metal chairs.
“This room is fun, funky and feminine with great storage, an ingenious bed for sleeping, watching TV or talking to friends and a loveseat that any young girl would simply love,” says designer Vern Yip.
A photography grid adorns one wall of the guest bedroom with a rural southern motif. “I like every house to have a mix of different mediums and that’s where photography comes in,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “Anytime I am showcasing photography I like to stick with odd numbers so I picked up nine different prints and put them together in a grid pattern.”
The round table and patterned, upholstered chairs seat up to eight people. To add storage, designers brought in a buffet that is covered in faux-shagreen to add some nice texture against the wallpaper.
Against an eggplant purple wall, a white shelving unit provides sharp contrast, coordinating with a small white table flanked by two velvet chairs. This elegant space provides stylish storage for books and accessories.
