Inspired by a velvet cerulean blue sofa, this home features a soft color palette with pops of bold color. Some of the colors were taken from the preppy and Easter-inspired hues that people wear in the Washington D.C. area. Tribal and African accents add a unique element to the neutral and traditional furniture pieces.
This Victorian-themed bedroom features a antiqued blue accent table underneath a window with ornate brown and neutral drapery. Military medals, framed vintage photographs and sculptures of soldiers give the space a historical feel.
When including a work space in your bedroom, forget the basic boring desk that’s often part of a hotel suite. This glass-topped desk was an outlet find by Atlanta designer Michelle Mentzer, who paired it with an acrylic Z-shaped accent table from an antiques store. She also saved on the metallic lamp, mirror and glitzy accessories at a home decor discount store.
The runner was elsewhere in the home, but designer Heather Hogan Roberts claimed it for the living room. Now, it brings pattern into the hallway, which has a brick accent wall. She curated books to create symmetrical stacks on the bench and to bring blue and white into the room.
A small wood buffet table with two doors that open is used to display an orange and red plate and four pillar candles. Designer tip: Resist the urge to cover every square inch of wall space in your room. Too much wall decor can be visually overwhelming.
The custom bed and bedside tables are nestled comfortably into the wall for a bit more privacy and a cozier feel. To top off this welcoming space, warm bed linens offer a great place to snuggle down for the night, while the faux fur rug softens the space.
