Following French trends, this yellow and brown plaid curtain falls from an iron rod and twisted iron curtain rings against a neutral wall with textured paint finish. The twisted rod ends with a leaf finial extending past the curtain. Rod, rings, bracket and finials are by Iron Age Studios.
Bamboo rods with decorative wrought iron handles serve as drapery pulls, helping you to open and close this neutral window treatment. A hint of Mediterranean and tropical influence is apparent in the mix of materials.
In the master suite, designers created a warm focal point in the space with the fireplace. To create a bit of contrast, it was painted white with brown accent tiles to complement the tan walls. To help give the space a bit of privacy, curtains were hung on a wrought iron rods and half curtains attached to the large windows.
Black framework supports the open staircase design. Wrought iron railing compliments the black frame and the unique curvature of the rods add natural decoration to the minimalist design. Wood steps feature sharp lines while the wood handrail is rounded for a softer finish.
The great room in a lakeside living room has a nestled sofa and a fireplace large enough in which to stand. Carter Kay Interiors was tasked with giving the room a more human scale and creating a welcoming, cozy environment for small and large gatherings. The custom high-back Saladino sofa is scaled to relate to the fireplace opening and mantel. The designers had horizontal iron rods made for the draperies and had those same rods turn the corner, adding vertical straps to create an ever-changing art wall. The room also has a vintage iron and suede chair, a pair of iron lamps and lots of pillows for a cozy corner to watch the boats float by. The room is very carefully layered with rugs: sisal, Moroccan and hide, and textured chairs.
This dining room has Old World charm with a long formally set dining table and chairs on an Oriental rug. To continue the style, the room features stacked stone columns, rod iron accents and earthy red walls.
To add an Old World European touch to this all-black-and-white bathroom, an aged iron chandelier with rope-clad rods was chosen. In addition to its classic lines, the neutral tones and rough textures of the chandelier's mixed materials help throw the overall look off slightly.
The goal with the fireplace was to create an architectural feature with enough visual weight to balance the large scale of the room and trusses. Incorporating industrial and rustic materials, including corten steel, rebar rods and angle iron, was also a key element of the design to tie together the home.The lighting through the pattern casts dramatic shadows across the golden walls, which were upholstered in burlap and then painted over for texture.
