Set back in a nook at Houston's Beckrew Wine House is an intimate conversation spot. A U-shaped bench with brown leather cushions is highlighted with an array of gold and neutral throw pillows. Dark navy walls are paired with rustic white brick and a gilded mirror that reflects the contemporary brass chandelier.
The eye is drawn to an indented panel in the wall covered with black-and-white seashell-patterned wallpaper. A circular mirror adds a brightening effect over the wallpaper that matches the sunny, bright look of the white room. Patterned pink and blue throw pillows decorate the light blue sectional curved around a brass coffee table.
Mosaic tile creates a contrasting grid pattern for a striking floor in this Art Deco bathroom. Marble tiles are used on the walls for sophisticated, monochromatic look, while white sinks keep the space light and airy. Metallics, from the brass light fixtures and mirrors to the gold faucets and plumbing, bring an updated vintage feel to the space.
This eclectic bedroom features a white upholstered bed with a tufted headboard and a gray and white wallpaper accent wall. A brass chest and faux fur rug sit at the foot of the bed, while gold oval mirrors are positioned on either side. Pink pillows add a pop of color and black hardwood floors provide a finishing touch.
Two bright orange wingback chairs along with two brass ring table lamps flank a simple mirrored coffee table in this contemporary living room. The orange hues are carried over into the artwork and area rug while the shape of the table lamps is reflected in the electric blue cushions of the front chairs.
Opposite the mirror vignette, a gallery wall of framed art, including prints from Georgia O’Keeffe alongside some of Matthew’s photography work, sits above a beautiful vintage credenza. As a DIY moment, Amy added brass knobs to the honey wood credenza. Changing the knobs is one of her favorite secrets for transforming vintage pieces for a modern space.
This modern black and white bathroom is truly luxurious. The brass faucets, drawer handles and mirror frames provide a touch of opulence. The black honeycomb tile floor is echoed in the glass-walled walk-in shower. A double vanity provides sleek symmetry. But the true star is a stunning black and white freestanding soaking tub, a gorgeous spot to let the day's stresses soak away.
In the master bedroom, the wall on which the bed rests is covered in a gorgeous, metallic silver grass cloth that conceals the hidden door to the closet. Above the mirrored, four-poster bed, a brass chain link chandelier makes a bold statement, while rich texture was added with black faux fur pillow shams and blanket at the food of the bed. To personalize the space even further, designers had a modern, monogram printed on metallic linen.
A contemporary blue, white and gold study is adorned with blue chaises from Bjork Studio and custom blue and gold pillows with fabric from Holland & Sherry. The round Halcyon chandelier by Kelly Wearstler dazzles with its mix of quartz and brass while a serpentine mirror by Rose Tarlow ensnares a fireplace. The study by J. Wheeler Designs was part of the 2017 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Home for the Holidays Designer Showhouse.
Careful arranging creates the perfect use of space in this very narrow white master bath. A double vanity of dark wood and a freestanding bathtub give the space a luxurious master bath feel. Unique materials and finishes such as a custom chevron marble wall, brass wall faucets, and the mixed metals of matte black mirrors and polished chrome sconces provide a trendy touch -- proof that even a small bathroom can be luxurious and have a huge style impact.
When the homeowners went to renovate their 1980s home, they knew they wanted a sophisticated style that was a little more casual and up-to-date, so designers transformed the outdated library into a beautiful, contemporary-chic great room for the family. Designers worked with a local wood company to refinish the entire space, stripping the original stain and bleaching the wood to achieve a stylish "greige" stain on the walls and ceiling beams. To maintain the room's grand feel, designer chose to keep and update the gallery, which also adds height to the room. Finally, the marble clad and antique mirror fireplace surround helps to break up the wood paneled walls and the home's original handrail, comprised of brass and iron, was modified to meet modern safety codes and standards.
