To get the look of this high-end bar cart on a budget, start with a basic metal or wire shelving unit, says Michiel Perry, founder of Black Southern Belle. Spray paint it your desired color. To add the lattice and bamboo trim, use a piece of vinyl diamond lattice, which you often see on outdoor decks and fences. Use bendable PVC pipe that is spray painted to match or in an accent color, for the trim.
Pattern comes into play in textiles and furnishings in this transitional guest bedroom, adding interest in an otherwise neutral space. Pale floors, off-white walls and white trim mix with a neutral upholstered bed decorated with white bedding. Soft blue hues in the pillows bring color to the room.
In this eclectic living room, a red upholstered armchair with carved-wood trim sits beside a modern ghost table. The mix of styles, materials and textures is emphasizes by the zebra-print pillow, woven rug and bamboo blinds.
A factory cart coffee table and reclaimed barn wood hung over the fireplace mantel add natural texture to this casual living space. A large brown sofa with white trim and a wing back chair provide a comfy place to sit back and enjoy the fireplace. The trio of windows are adorned with floor-to-ceiling indigo-blue drapes and bamboo blinds.
Striped tent valances with red cotton poplin trim and trellis-patterned wallpaper, all from Schumacher, are used in the 2017 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Homes for the Holidays Designer Showhouse. Atlanta designer Mallory Mathison Glenn said she was inspired by the colors of the French flag and Schumacher’s classic pastoral print, “Plaisirs de Chine,” seen on the pillow sham and duvet. The headboard is vintage faux bamboo and the coverlet has banding in blue. A demilune bench is at the foot of the bed. Mathison Glenn also used a watercolor painting over the bed, an antique French commode and an octagonal mirror in the space.
