Designer Leslie Hildebrand created a family-friendly master bedroom bathed in European elegance. Hildebrand infused Old World charm into the new construction through the use of casual linen bedding, a soothing color palette and well-appointed furnishings.
When you've got a dark corner, shed some light on it! "We had soaring walls and a little budget for art, so we decided to bounce some light around the room with this floor mirror," said designer Leslie Hildebrand. The mirror opened up the space by reflecting more light around the living room and solved the problem of not having enough room for an end table.
Designer Leslie Hildebrand added a slim console with major buffet potential to the dining room. A few interesting art pieces and a pair of buffet lamps frame the space, creating a focal point in the room.
The lady of the house wanted a place to stretch out and read so designer Leslie Hildebrand placed a tailored chaise by the picture window. The scaled paisley print repeats on the drapes and throw pillow.
After: An Atlanta home has been expanded and transformed with a new shake roof, new paint on the brick, new shutters and a more spacious front porch. To get a fresh start on the lawn, they removed some of the existing landscaping.
Arched alcoves add architectural character to the master suite. One niche houses a desk for checking late night emails, while the other contains a chest that doubles as a media cabinet. The fireplace is elegantly highlighted with boxwood topiaries and a quatrefoil mirror.
