A custom painting by Thomas Swanston serves as the focal point of this nature-inspired living room. Below, a charming fireplace is backed with brick set in a herringbone pattern. An upholstered bench wraps all the way around the fireplace, providing fireside seating.
Contemporary bird artwork was chosen to add a quirky touch to this bright, bold guest bedroom. The pinks, reds and oranges from the artwork were used in a color-blocking technique around the room, featured on the lamps, cushions and bedding. Designer tip: To keep a space with bright colors from looking like a kid's room, layer shades of the same tone throughout, like this room layers coral, orange and red.
A sweet window seat takes a contemporary turn thanks to bold, black-and-white prints on the seat cushion and accent pillows. Coastal accessories and artwork keep the space tied to its beachfront setting.
This traditional white bedroom features masculine accessories, such as a mounted turtle shell above the bed and antlers above the dresser. Various plates and framed artwork showcasing bird images create a themed gallery wall.
A white desk is positioned against pastel yellow walls in this small office area. A green electric typewriter complements the green chair and artwork. An antique bird cage, small three-legged table and floor lamp accessorize the quaint study space.
A white desk is positioned against pastel yellow walls in this small office space. A vintage typewriter, framed artwork, fun accessories and bird-shaped pulls on the drawers add a ton of personality. Patterned wallpaper inside the desk also adds character to the work space.
The dining room, directly beyond the living room is the ideal place, in my mind, to display artwork by both Atlanta artists including Matt Haffner, Katherine Taylor and Rachel Ballard and a few from New York (William Steiger) and Los Angeles (David Lynch) as well as small sculptures under vitrines and a collection of Audubon bird prints.
A solid Indiana limestone mantel is the perfect backdrop for a tightly grouped collection of Audubon prints, framed to hide a TV set. If you’re not a bird-lover, almost any series of artwork with repeating themes and colors can work just as well. (To replicate the look on a budget, you can buy an art book and carefully cut out your favorite pages.)
From an icy blue and white color palette to touches of silver and rich, menswear-inspired fabrics, see how a lackluster bedroom gets a winter-inspired makeover full of the season's hottest trends. In this design from Brian Patrick Flynn, a collection of framed artwork and photography is simply leaned against the wall above the entry’s console table. A small table lamp made of mercury glass helps reflect the light it emits once switched on at night. A mirrored console table serves as the base for this lovely white and silver vignette, featuring silver frames, white hydrangeas, silver bird accessories and a white faux deer head.
