This elegant designer bathroom features wall scones and sculptural vessel sink, both of which have soft curves that resemble flower petals. A large oval mirror and gingham roman shade complete the look.
The low light and rich tones of this dining area create an intimate look and feel. A buffet flush with the wall serves as a wet bar while a pair of lamps on each end contribute light and illuminate the wall art. Two dark, neutral armchairs with tufted backs provide cozy and sophisticated seating around the rich wood table. The focal point of the design is an eye-catching chandelier with yellow petal-like stems.
A bright blue bed comforter pops against the light green shiplap wall coloring and neutral fabrics filling this comfortable, country bedroom. Sheer curtains softly frame the windows while a centered light fixture adds a heavier element to the light, airy look of the room.
A black ceiling gives a continuous feel to this powder room design. Marbled black and white walls encircle the room for a unique and mysterious look. An artistic modern chandelier with petal-like charms hangs over the mirror. A brass border around the mirror pops against the silver and black tones in the room.
A wood dining table and hardwood floor bring warmth to the bright, white walls of this dining space. Sage green velvet chair cushions and a light cream rug add soft texture to the room. A petaled light fixture features rounded edges against the sharp corners of the main fixtures.
Bright shades of turquoise and blue create a flower petal design on the wallpaper in this bathroom. A sleek white cabinet supports the built in sink below a mirror with wavy white trim. A white sconce is trimmed with a light blue pom poms for a fun finish.
Open floor space between the living room and dining room keep the spaces separate while still feeling connected in the open floor plan. A green leather sofa compliments the sage green velvet cushioning of the dining chairs. An animal hide rug and upholstered chairs bring unique texture to the living room. Above the dining table, a petaled light fixture creates a flower shape on the ceiling.
Play with pattern and color by using wallpaper on the backs of bookshelves. Interior designer Jade Joyner of Metal + Petal in Athens, Ga., loved the coral, blue and gold in this wallpaper, and paired it with a robin’s egg blue shade on the bookshelves. With so much color, she’s able to mix in white for a modern look.
Commit to the black and gold scheme in a major way with artwork, wallpaper or a quick update to your wall color. Then look for color-coordinated straws, like these black and gold ones that interior designer Jade Joyner, co-owner of Metal + Petal in Athens, Ga., used on her bar cart. Even with a black and gold palette, you can incorporate other colors. Joyner says she loves how refreshments have an element of style to them.
Coordinate small extras with your existing black and gold palette. Interior designer Jade Joyner, co-owner of Metal + Petal in Athens, Ga., placed matches with black tips into small apothecary jars, and arranged them on a gold bar cart. She selected other entertaining essentials, such as straws, in gold as well. Even the champagne bottle’s gold seal fits into the look, and pops against the black and white modern art backdrop.
“Cake stands are a fun way to add height and layering,” says interior designer Jade Joyner, co-owner of Metal + Petal in Athens, Ga. She then tied the red in the cake stand to the bottom level with Asian foo dog statues. For texture, use plants and glassware, like these vintage hobnob glasses. Don’t forget the greenery, either, with houseplants and low-maintenance plants, like the bird’s nest fern on the bottom level and a glass cloche terrarium with a succulent.
Add bubbly and metal accents for an instant update to a bar cart when entertaining. Here, interior designer Jade Joyner, co-owner of Metal + Petal in Athens, Ga., paired a foxtail fern in a gold pot with vintage-looking amber decanters. For height and an eclectic accent, she selected a larger decanter with a brass bug cap.
