Prior to the makeover, this master bedroom was in contractor-grade condition, from its neutral carpet to the beige paint on its walls. Taking inspiration from its colorful abstract art, the room received a new identity with shades of blue accented with fire-engine red. The paper lantern light fixtures add lightness to this otherwise masculine bedroom.
A gold wet bar with art deco lamp separates a pair of navy blue striped armchairs with nailhead trim and lavender and magenta floral throw pillows. The ottoman features a large, bold pattern with navy geometric shapes. A contemporary natural wood table with copper top and stack of red books add personality to finish the design.
This view offers a look at the easy connection between the master bathroom and the well-designed master closet with warm red walls across the hall. A hanging white shelf in the hall offers a spot for art and decorative accessories, with hooks for storing handbags and other grab-and-go items.
Make a space that will last. “You don’t want things to be temporary. You want things that they can grow with,” said Cate Dunning of GordonDunning, who decorated this bedroom as part of a Dwell with Dignity install. This bedroom was for three boys who loved Super Mario Brothers and the Atlanta Falcons, so GordonDunning incorporated red accented with blue and hung framed Mario art prints from Etsy on the wall. The beds were already in the room, and DIY blogger Dena Stormer painted them with Sherwin Williams Positive Red.
This home evokes memories of the '50s and '60s modern movement while boasting state-of-the-art sustainable building practices. The site-specific home features an open plan that allows for a smaller yet more spacious home. Rust red Cor'ten steel, metal siding and hard trowelled stucco come together in a lively composition that has held up well over the last five years.
Warm, neutral paint contrasts with exotic artwork and accessories to create an intriguing statement. The large, turquoise decorative pot adds a distinct element and brightly accents the simple, gray-toned wall. In a purposeful asymmetric presentation, handblown-glass floral art is hung along one wall in the living room. Glass sculptures in their spectacular hues of red, orange, yellow, and other colors generate an eye-caching focal point from all vantage points.
The family who own this Southwestern-style home wanted one space in which to hang out as a family and play games, do art and read together. A second living space was designed to be more of an entertaining area, as well as a place for the family to watch tv. In both room, designers punctuated the adobe walls with pops of bright colors: red, green and blue.
A white design base gives this bedroom a bright look. A headboard panel mounted to the wall adds subtle texture over the white covers with faux fur throw pillow. A pair of nightstands feature textured green sliding cabinet doors. Red and orange throw pillows add vivid color to the bench at the foot of the bed and compliment the wall art above the nightstands. A vintage chair with colorful velvet cushions finishes off the funky, colorful design.
This casual living room features a vintage American flag and splashes of red were reminiscent of the Americana theme. Lively punches of tangerine and kelly green merged with varying shades of cobalt and indigo blues. A heavy dose of woven sea grass added to the distinctive maritime air while an assortment of sea shells, blue-and-white pottery and a colorful collection of art came together to create a place of delight in this low-key beach cottage.
The designers at Brio Interior Designs transformed a small, cluttered kitchen into a Midcentury masterpiece. Walls were demolished to create an open concept concept design throughout the house. Large bottom cabinets replaced the metal shelving the couple was using for storage, and their outdated appliances were replaced with state of the art stainless steel ones. Designers then added details that show off the couple's personality, such as the red patterned rug that adds a bit of flair, while modern light fixtures help the large windows over the countertop to provide light to the kitchen.
Camille Flurry's Athens, Ga., bedroom is the perfect example of a tween room done right. To create a one-of-a-kind, eclectic, super-cool space, Camille's mom, Amy, combined handed-down family pieces with finds from local flea markets, vintage boutiques and art festivals. The white bed and nightstand first belonged to Amy as a child. She supplemented these finds with traditional area rugs from local stores. The chandelier is a budget-saver from a local lighting company that Amy customized with red spray paint to brighten Camille's room.
The serene, distant feel of Mikel’s space is a direct result of the color palette the designer has chosen. The home is a study in neutrals. Brighter colors are use sparingly and, unsurprisingly, to great effect. The large art piece that hangs in the entryway is not a huge departure from the color scheme of the overall living room. But with it’s small pops of bright orange and dark red, it easily stands out, bringing the perfect amount of life and energy to the room.
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
What do you get when you combine works from a billion dollar art collection and a decadent, seasonal menu masterminded by French Laundry vet and executive chef Christopher Grossman? You get one of Atlanta's most memorable nights out in the tony Buckhead neighborhood.
