The window treatments, art, dining table and chandelier all add a touch of elegance to this dining room designed by Helen Richardson. The sumptuous striped silk window treatments add texture while providing the illusion of expanding the space vertically.
Mixing different materials in a backsplash creates a one-of-a-kind design. Designer Helen Richardson used light green tumble marble for the majority of the backsplash and added diamond-shaped stainless steel accent tiles to give it an unexpected shine.
Cool blues work against the warm woods and artwork in this transitional dining room from designer Helen Richardson. The homeowner’s eclectic mix of art objects is displayed prominently while the walls, painted in Benjamin Moore’s HC-137, provide a perfect complement for the warm, rich multiwood tone and clean-lined furnishings.
Designer Helen Richardson artfully arranges a topiary and art on top of a dresser in this traditional entryway. White stair risers, posts and trim pop against the rich red two-tone striped wallpaper. Grouping accessories in odd numbers and varying the sizes and shapes of the pieces adds visual interest to the collection.
Helen Richardson designed this country living room with bold patterns set against a bright orange couch. Vibrant hues and dark wood furnishings emit visual warmth while pale yellow walls tone down the bold sofa and reflect the softer shades visible in the area rug's floral design. Rustic decorative stars pull in the country feel in a simple and subtle way.
