A dark iron base with a modern lampshade help this lamp look more updated while a contrasting pattern lines the inside of the soft blue shade to add an element of interest. The end table look is completed with a lush green ivy plant and rustic wood coasters.
In this sitting area, a mix of patterns in neutral colors give dimension and interest to the space without being overwhelming. A simple iron and glass coffee table provides a blank canvas for the books and accessories on top.
Fixer Upper host Joanna Gaines staged the newly painted living room with bright and feminine yet rustic furniture and accessories, making the room feel cozy with shabby chic style. A wreath mounted on a piece of decorative iron fencing becomes a focal point in the room.
This Old World dining room centers on the elegant fireplace, defining the whole space. The Venetian plaster wall treatment delivers an appealing visual effect, and the velvet dining chairs provide coziness. The wrought-iron chandelier and mantel accessories disperse the element of fire throughout the room.
To open up this formerly small kitchen, a wall was removed and replaced with a spacious island that integrates a glass-top range and much-needed cabinetry. Contrasting against the black quartz countertops is a backsplash made from white subway tiles, which extend up to the ceiling. Open shelving with wrought iron brackets provide convenient and attractive display for dishware and accessories.
Through French doors, and you enter the bedroom. The off-black wall color continues. A similar shade is Wrought Iron from Aphrochic Interior Paint. Inside the bedroom is another built-in designed by Kelley. A shelving unit divides the home office from the bed. The shelving offers an abundance of storage for Kelley’s collected pieces. Below, drawers have been installed as additional storage for clothing and accessories.
The dining room by Shelly Riehl David uses bold colors to create a vibrant dining space. Custom draperies on iron medallions were paired with an enameled walnut credenza, glided buffet lamps and mahogany dining table. Silk upholstered side chairs were grouped with button-tufted head chairs and showcased on travertine tiles gridlocked by narrow black granite stripes. An elegant centerpiece and simple accessories accentuate the timeless elegance of this room.
Habachy Designs wanted to create depth through texture. The chandelier is made from natural Nguni cow horn in Africa, the table is made of solid wood and clad in antique brass and textured. The dining chairs have a clean, modern silhouette but are slipcovered to give a more casual look. The atom bowl holding succulents is made of iron and hand-crafted which gives it more character. Accessories throughout the space are artifacts and imported pieces from Africa and Asia. The vintage lion door knocker was an accessory that was found, custom mounted and had a stand built specifically to showcase the piece on the mantel.
Venetian plastered walls, cypress beams and custom-made wrought iron lighting set an elegant tone upon entering this traditional living room. Designer Troy Beasley mixes contemporary chairs, tables and accessories with charming Moorish art and rich, Tuscan hues. Tuscan style is known for its natural, earth-toned colors, like golden yellow, terra cotta and green for an airy effect in warm-weather places, and this ivory and gold color scheme provides just that.
This modern Tuscan-style kitchen pays homage to the traditional details associated with the design through its use of color, architecture and accessories. Wood rafters help enclose the kitchen, while exposing the cathedral ceilings and intricate, artistic murals along the walls and ceilings. Simple wrought iron fixtures showcase Old World appeal with a contemporary edge. With massive wooden beams, terra-cotta tiles from Italy and hand-painted frescoes of Italian vineyards — this kitchen cooks up Italian flavor from floor to ceiling. But it's the bread warmer and wine cellar that stores up to 1,800 bottles that make this an Italian paradise. Appliances include two Miele dishwashers, a vegetable steamer, a built-in espresso machine and a five-burner Thermador stove.
This entry joyfully foreshadows what's in store for our journey through the Blehm family home. We're immediately introduced to the family's four central themes: a love of art, bold colors, custom solutions and the use of classic black and white. When the foundation is understated, as is this entry's wallpaper, it creates an opportunity to layer on the fun. Angela worked with a local carpenter to design the statement making red lacquered cabinet. The door style was inspired by Angela's favorite ceramic planter and is in perfect harmony with the iron pickets on the staircase to the left. It is clear the paintings and accessories were all intentionally chosen and placed. The relationships between shapes, finishes and even the primary colors create a beautifully balanced entry vignette
