Savannah College of Art film professor Steve Stanley and his partner, shopSCAD director Joe Bush who both graduated from SCAD, live in a 1957 midcentury home in the Sylvan Terrace neighborhood of Savannah brought beautifully back to life with the help of the team at Hallett & Co. which oversaw the restoration.
The rawness of this stone sculpture contrasts with flowering plants, such as hydrangeas, in the Georgia garden of Lyman and Becky Smith. After Lyman Smith, a Georgia Tech graduate, retired from the telecommunications industry, he devoted time to creating his garden, with sections inspired by Japanese gardens, conifers from the Pacific Northwest and traditional Southern plants.
A graduate of Philadelphia’s Moore College of Art, Naomi has an enduring love of paintings and photography. Both can be found on the walls of her home. In the living room, above the sofa, a concise selection of black and white photography and ink drawings creates a bold visual impact.
As seen on HGTV's Flipping the Block, husband and wife team John and Whitney Spinks created a midcentury modern retreat in their master bedroom in Glendale, Calif. They chose a bright white paint and then stenciled a herringbone pattern in graduated shades of aquamarine on two walls. Yellow chevron curtains provide contrast and additional pattern.
Although this neutral-hued kitchen is transitional in its approach, it also suggests an industrial-style edginess in its furnishings and architecture. The sharp lines of the graduated tray ceiling and the rustic center island and barstools introduce these aesthetics while complementing the more traditional elements in the cabinetry and flooring for a successful marriage of otherwise clashing forms.

When Gram graduated to a big-boy bed, Sara gave him a double partly because she didn't want to deal with bed rails. "He has so much space that he never rolls to the edge!" she explains. What's with the birch forest in the room? It's wallpaper, inspired by the woodsy view out the window. Young and fun but not babyish. Birch Tree wall mural from Urban Outfitters
Carnations are one of the most readily available and affordable flowers found at supermarkets from coast to coast. Give them a stylish upgrade by arranging them ombre style. To do so, pick up three different shades of the same color carnation, cut them to size so that they sit low around the perimeter of the vessel, then graduate from one color to another.
The plants lining the dining table are prototypes for an outdoor installation Paul is designing for the Brooklyn community. A graduate of Jamaica’s Edna Manley College Of Art in Kingston and the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England, Paul remains fascinated by the sense of nature that he grew up around. Now in Brooklyn, he represents nature in his sculptural work.
In their kitchen design, AB Design Elements used a combination of lighting systems to work within the space. For an up-to-the-minute look, low voltage cable lighting was installed under the graduated tray ceiling that highlights points of the room but does not visually impair the flow of the architectural features, as the lights seem to float in the room. Recessed lighting, under cabinet lighting and chandeliers are also placed strategically in the room that complement its overall transitional design.
