An installation of eyes painted in the verre eglomise style by Jane Richardson Mack follow you down the stairs in the "Stare" Well at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015. Verre eglomise is a technique where a gilded design is painted on the back side of a piece of glass for a mirror-like finish.
Paint the ceiling for a cohesive designer look. For this small bathroom, Atlanta designer Michele Gratch used Benjamin Moore’s Habanero Pepper, which matches the reddish tones in the chinoiserie wallpaper. Also, she had the seagrass rug custom cut, which is not a budget buster, and added a border with a yard of fabric that coordinated with the wallpaper.
Despite its small stature, this guest bath has a ton of storage: a floating cupboard, medicine cabinet and a vanity with drawers offer plenty of room for towels and travel-sized products. Meanwhile, a quartz topper and white-painted wood paneling infuse the space with some history and charm.
The colors in this fun bedroom come entirely from accessories: a quartet of small paintings over the bed, accent pillows, bright candlesticks. The room's owners can easily switch out the elements for a whole new look.

Looking through the gentleman's parlor into the game room, one can see the creative way Glenn Wallace incorporates small paintings into the parlor design scheme. Vintage and design books are also a key component of the Smithfield Cottage look, instantly adding a sense of lived-in comfort and history to the space.
Black and white art gives a modern twist to the mantel display over this fireplace. Painted white brick, potted hydrangeas and a woven firewood basket create a textural mix to add intrigue to the simple look of the space. A small gray hearth is perfect for catching ash and wood and protecting the hardwood floor below.
Orange stripes varying in width cover the white walls of this contemporary bathroom around a matching orange vanity and mirror with white countertop. A glass door leads to the white tile shower. A small guitar painted with an aztec design in all colors decorates the wall above the toilet.
