Dark stain on moldings and doors complement the traditional architecture of this Brooklyn townhouse. Original details include a wood paneled wainscot and a transom window above the wide front door. A glass pendant with antique brass hardware fits with the style of the entryway.
A dark, stained wood staircase in a Queen Anne-style home is built out with paneling and trim. The home was built in the early 1900s in
Atlanta. While the stained glass is not original to the home and was added by previous owners, homeowner and designer Carl Mattison said the stained glass provides privacy while allowing in light.
The front door of this home really sets the tone for the Spanish eclectic design of the home. The dark, wood door is warm and welcoming, beckoning guests into the home, while the geometric stained glass adds a pop of eclectic color.
If you’re decorating your counters with several similar color tones, it’s important to add interest with textures and size. This large coral piece and wooden bowl make a beautiful display, and the bowl is a great place for sponges, soaps and other spare toiletries for guests.
A great way to balance your counter’s decor is to have similar or identical containers holding different items. Here, sponges and bath salts add a pretty, spa-like quality to the decor without overwhelming the visual space, and the silk flowers in the center add a soft, organic touch.
Orchids are one of the best plants for a bathroom if you have a window, because they love the humidity but need light, says Cindi MacPherson of the The Interior Partners. Add a touch of nature to your bathroom decor with an orchid like this one, and pull color from other parts of the room into your counter decor. This hammered gold tray mirrors the gold roman shade.
