“What I love about the living room is we have a neutral sofa and deep blue chairs so I could play with the color palette by layering different blues in,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “But to make the blue not too masculine we brought in pops of really pale pink and it makes the whole space totally grounded.”

“The front porch is about 8 feet deep by roughly 20 feet wide,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “It’s enough to function as an outdoor room.” An all-weather rug, teak sofa and colorful coffee table carve out the conversation area.
Futuristic upholstered arm chairs, farmhouse style black Windsor chairs and traditional upholstered nail head trim chairs add variety to the dining room seating. “I used three completely different kinds of chairs in pairs at the dining table to add a little personality, charm, and to tie it into Asheville which is all about individualism,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
A paisley print quilt in teal and white plays off the dark teal walls while keeping the space from feeling too heavy. Mixing the printed quilt with the blue and yellow striped Roman shades keeps the eye moving and punctuates the room with interesting patterns and textures.

The key to the bright and airy feeling in this custom walk-in closet is the large window that floods the space in natural light. A soft, teal rug echoes the colors found throughout the space and also helps keep the space quiet and inviting.
Whitewashed bricks contrast the custom metal-studded sculpture to create a unique finish on the fireplace. “It’s almost reminiscent of old ironwork,” said designer Tiffany Brooks, whose inspiration for the finish was a pair of fishnet stockings. A flat-screen television displays a rotating loop of artwork to accent the space until it’s time to tune in to your favorite show.
