Initially stumped as to what color direction to go in for the bedroom's redesign, an original piece of abstract art was used as inspiration. After a full week testing different shades and tints of blue, the best fit ended up being a shade of midnight blue called Dark Night by Sherwin-Williams.
A swirled wallpaper featuring neutral, black and blue hues brings a lively, flowing backdrop to this room. Tall gold table lamps with white shades flank a mounted mirror above the stylish art deco buffet. The black buffet doors are bordered in gold and capped with a gold top. Gold handles and a monogrammed initial complete the piece.
Mascarpone by Benjamin Moore is the perfect creamy white backdrop for the collection of vintage plates used in this little girl's bedroom. Designer Tip: Make a whole wall of art by using pictures, plates or anything else you collect to make a beautiful collage.
This playroom exudes personality — from the initials on the wall to the deer art and graphic rug. School locker-inspired cabinets provide a great storage space for toys and supplies and also serve as a place to display art, candles and a lamp. The fireplace and wicker chair add a homey feel to the room.
Forget plain old paintings and sketches -- the art in this teen's room is a unique combination of antique tennis racquets and an oversized metal initial. Rustic plaid linens are complemented with contemporary-inspired -- and matching -- striped pillow, throw blanket and window treatments. Antique record boxes serve as a storage space-packed bedside table.
Together with the dining room, the kitchen comprises an expansive space. The marble island helps divide the space while providing room for the sink and additional storage. The backsplash continues the feel of water in the space which is accented by a few well-placed pieces of art, including the designer's initials: MB.
Bright Williamson bought this Savannah home in 1999 before he married his wife Allison. Though they initially planned to sell it, the couple decided to instead fix it up to accommodate their two sons and a collection of art, family heirlooms and treasures from their world travels. The result is a bright, open plan space with his-and-her living rooms and a convenient location close to the water for this water-loving family.
In the hallway leading to the bedroom, even more art awaits. Much like the map of Paris in the kitchen, large metallic lanterns are mementos from the couple’s wedding. Tanika kept the Moroccan pieces for use in the home, pairing them with a 200-year old, hand-painted Chinese chest. The oversized Scrabble pieces set above, also began as part of the wedding decor, spelling out the couple’s initials. The combination of modern metallics with vintage global wares is a hallmark of Tanika’s style and one of the secrets to her beautiful home.
