On the ground floor entry to Janet Gregg's home the designer has created a striking collage of her own artwork. The bold pinks and blues and idiosyncratic mix of pattern and color immediately establish the unique style that defines the whole home.
A custom vanity in rich Jacobean-stained alder with a marine varnish sets off fresh white sinks and vintage-inspired fixtures in this traditional bathroom. The focal point of the space is the collage of mirrors, which breaks up the large wall above the vanity in a new and exciting way.
A large piece of artwork upstairs can be appreciated from either the hallway spanning the second floor of this modern home or from the first floor below. Up close, the piece appears to be a collage of books and magazines while at a distance a lady in a cafe appears.
Coastal tones and textures add beauty and interest to this open family room. Neutral shades throughout give the space a calm feel, providing a great place to relax and unwind. Atwork inspired by the beach and ocean is framed in eclectic frames that create a visually interesting collage art display.
Choose your favorite art pieces to feature in the collage. One by one, place them on a white board in a well lit area (near a window, but not direct sunlight) and use your phone or camera to take pictures of them.
This bright and fun kids bath will withstand the passing of time as the children in the family grow older. Punches of color, distributed in a "collage" manner helped bring this bathroom to life. An orange accent wall adds a bigger pop of color that is echoed by the fringed bathmat.
The open concept dining room has a sense of rusticity to the design with gray hardwood floor and wood beams. A traditional round table allows for six to dine in style. Contemporary details such as the chandelier and mirrored collage on the back wall complete the beautiful look by Raegan Ford Interiors.
Your bathroom should reflect you, the homeowner. In this quirky bathroom, a collage of newspapers and photographs papers the walls, layering personal memorabilia with crisp, white hand towels hung on a traditional brass bar. The homeowners used wallpaper paste and clippings that related to their work, lives and interests to create the attention-grabbing (and informative) effect.
Sitting behind a taupe velvet sofa in this living room is a starburst mirror collage positioned on a navy accent wall. Designer SuzAnn Kletzien also reupholstered an egg chair in a navy velvet fabric and had a custom ottoman made with a removable tray in the center. Glass doors provide access to the condo's balcony area.
This living room, from HGTV's Property Brothers, is centered around a refaced fireplace and decorated with contemporary blue and gray furniture. Under the blue area rug, the floor is porcelain tile made to look like hardwood floors. A collage of family photos hangs on the back wall. A rustic sliding barn door separates the living room from the office.
The top of this custom table is constructed from reclaimed floor joints found on-site. The long, sturdy piece has industrial-inspired details that fit with the loft-like space, part of a fully restored townhouse in Brooklyn. A collage of black and white photographs creates a decorative statement that defines the dining space and forms a focal point for the room.
A thin black pencil-like floral pattern wall embellishment adds design and style to this white bookshelf. The design is heavy enough to make an impact, but understated enough to not disrupt the quaint, artistic display on the shelving. In addition to books, candlesticks, a glass collage mirror and sculpture art bring some color to the space.
Contemporary cabinets and stainless steel accents highlight this functional loft-style kitchen with a two-tiered metallic island. Industrial-style orange pendant lights bring a pop of color to the space while a beautiful arrangement of red roses add warmth. The far wall is decorated with a black and white photo collage, adding an element of surprise and visual interest to the space. Hardwood flooring anchors the space and gives it a cozy feel.
A white stairway is the setting for a collection of contemporary art, both framed and canvas. The painting of Mick Jagger is an oil on canvas by Alexi Torres, an artist from Cuba. In the white frames, acrylic and ink paintings by Lindsey Porter are on paper from Nepal. The collages are by Isabelle Gautier and Vesela Baker, and the framed black-and-white piece is by Gee Gee Collins. The railing and floors are hardwoods in the Home for the Holidays designer showhouse in Atlanta.
Ironically enough, before even knowing what the room was once used for, designer Young Huh envisioned it as an art studio—the overhead lighting is that good! Her magical design, called “Young at Art,” explores the allure of an artist’s studio. The walls are covered with Fromental’s Braque (a large-scale collage inspired by Cubism) while a Mason Gerard easel and an array of abstract art complete the design.
The closet, painted a bold pink and filled with cans of paint and figurine palm trees, was a happy surprise.
The shiplap walls in the family room paired with the distressed wooden mirrors speaks to a casual luxury that is the intended overall mood of the home’s decor. We were as focused on comfort and approachability as we were on making it aesthetically pleasing. In the collage of nine teak wood framed mirrors, no two are exactly alike. The natural wood tones are echoed by the side table’s zebra wood facade. My fave detail in this image is the smart and simple tailoring on the sofa.
We’ve made it upstairs to the family’s private spaces and here’s a snapshot of Whitney and Micah’s daughter’s room. The design has not strayed far from the principles already established. This room boasts yet another lovely shade of green and promotes imagination and creativity. There’s a collage of the girl’s own art above her bed and a special piece above the bookcase created by Whitney reflecting her younger self with her own mother. The quilt was hand sewn by Whitney and her mom and the cute crochet animals were handmade by Whitney’s sister. How’s that for three generations of artists? The design is simple, the colors are bright and the mood is happy.
