James Farmer practices what he preaches when it comes to combining bold patterns: tones in the table lamps, blown-glass vase, peacocks and reflected botanical illustrations in this breakfast-room tableau all support the utterly extroverted wallpaper he selected for it.
Striped tent valances with red cotton poplin trim and trellis-patterned wallpaper, all from Schumacher, are used in the 2017 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Homes for the Holidays Designer Showhouse. Atlanta designer Mallory Mathison Glenn said she was inspired by the colors of the French flag and Schumacher’s classic pastoral print, “Plaisirs de Chine,” seen on the pillow sham and duvet. The headboard is vintage faux bamboo and the coverlet has banding in blue. A demilune bench is at the foot of the bed. Mathison Glenn also used a watercolor painting over the bed, an antique French commode and an octagonal mirror in the space.
Designer Mallory Mathison Glenn installed striped sky blue and white fabric for a tented ceiling in a whimsical kid's bedroom during the 2017 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Homes for the Holidays Designer Showhouse. The Edie fabric is from Schumacher. Mathison Glenn says she was inspired by French designer Madeleine Castaing’s beautiful tented rooms and style.
A white kitchen doesn't have to be ALL white. Here, designer Andrea Schumacher opted for just two small shelves in lieu of upper cabinets, making the fanciful floral wallpaper the star. For contrast, she chose an emerald green tone from the wallpaper to paint the kitchen's island. The standout green piece complements the blue floral wallpaper, the Murano glass chandeliers, white cabinetry and Carrara marble backsplash.
This traditional study is layered with texture, creating a warm, comfortable space its users can sink right into. A clean-lined, bench cushion sofa tucks into a niche in the built-in bookshelves, with swing-arm lamps that turn the spot into a cozy reading nook. A chaise longue adds a modern touch that's softened by its lived-in leather upholstery.
This open sitting room makes maximum use of a loft-like landing, with a cozy conversation area nestled up next to a bar. Eclectic artwork is a conversation piece, and a diminutive Chesterfield sofa is a traditional, homey touch.
This traditional dining room offers layers of texture, pattern and interest, with exotic and bohemian touches that bring distinction to the space. Three styles of seating around the table accommodate various types and sizes of gatherings. A suspended candelabra fixture lights up the room while setting an intimate tone.
Awash in cheery color, this foyer tricks the eye by hanging a large painting of a room above the console. The bright palette of the artwork is picked up in the rug and striped accent pillow making the space itself a compelling still life.
This navy blue bathroom exudes old world elegance with a sumptuous rug, a table lamp with a statue base and patterned curtains in rich colors. The standout feature of the space, though, is the incredible tile work on the walls, visually creating a sort of woven wainscoting.
