Camille Flurry's Athens, Ga., bedroom is the perfect example of a tween room done right. To create a one-of-a-kind, eclectic, super-cool space, Camille's mom, Amy, combined handed-down family pieces with finds from local flea markets, vintage boutiques and art festivals. The white bed and nightstand first belonged to Amy as a child. She supplemented these finds with traditional area rugs from local stores. The chandelier is a budget-saver from a local lighting company that Amy customized with red spray paint to brighten Camille's room.
The master suite is comprised of three rooms - the bedroom, dressing room and wet room. Behind the bed, a thrift store find creates a stunning focal point - this vintage 1970’s oil painting by a local city artist creates a dramatic and elegant statement. Inspired by the painting, Lauren Levant designed custom pendant lighting that she made herself from copper battery clamps, stainless steel cable and a light socket kit from the hardware store. A World War II era shipping trunk and an antique ladder complete the collection to create an eclectic, dramatic master suite that celebrates adaptive innovation.
“The flat was lackluster and definitely needed a facelift,” Chris remembers about his first visit to the space. “It was being shared by 3 folks – each with a bedroom. It had been split off from a neighboring flat many years ago and had not been renovated since then.” Recognizing the potential, however, Chris was quick to take the place and get to work building his vision, starting with the living room. Describing his style as “Bohemian Chic,” the living room is a full display of Chris’ love of eclectic influences. Mid-century seating is surrounded by various types of iconography, sculpture, art and books on fashion and style.
