In the dining room, the design influence was the nearby Pacific Ocean with blue-green watercolor wallpaper and a sea glass-inspired chandelier.
Designers wanted to create a space that could grow with its eight year old owner, so they chose to create a focal point with blue and white watercolor flower wallpaper. This choice is whimsical enough for a child, but is sophisticated enough to appeal to a young lady.
From the floral wallpaper and watercolor art to the black canopy bed and striped rug, every inch of this master bedroom feels thoughtfully balanced. In turn, each of the owners will find peace and comfort here.
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.
The homeowner wanted a retreat for the couple's eight year old whose room needed a "big girl" upgrade, so designers created a space where an eight year old would be perfectly comfortable, but could easily transition for an older girl with only a few minor tweaks. To achieve this, designers created a focal wall with watercolor floral wallpaper, then, they mixed fun, unexpected bedding and fabrics to add visual interest to help the room feel as if it has been collected over time.
The homeowner loves florals, so designer John McCain uses wallpaper of giant red and pink watercolor-style flowers for the downstairs powder room. The floating vanity features traditional trimwork and a marble countertop.
With their watercolor-esque design, these slipper chairs seem a bit whimsical -- and so fit right in with the room's floral wallpaper and contemporary artwork. Meanwhile, a traditional chandelier and wood table bring some structure to the space.
A closer look reveals more of the detail in the hallway. Above the picture rail that is original to the home’s design, AphroChic’s Sister’s wallpaper, a collaboration with artist Samantha Hahn, adds an artistic touch in blue watercolor.
Because this space is a rental, LABLstudio used removable wallpaper as a wallcovering. Hand-painted, watercolor pinstripes adorn remaining walls, continuing the gray and cream color palette. To save money, the designer painted the client’s existing bed a high-gloss gray and hung a shelf above to serve in place of a bedside table.
The owner wanted to incorporate her own art into her overall theme throughout Found boutique. Her unique style is represented through the watercolor art and fabulous geometric wallpaper. She also wanted to incorporate her love of pattern and gold, so she used a Lucite and brass bench that has a faux serpent fabric.
