Blue Art Deco Foyer With Wallpaper
This dramatic foyer sets a razzle dazzle tone with lacquered wallpaper and glittery lighting and furniture. Wallpaper with a glossy finish like this one is a good way to bounce light around a small or dark room.
To really catch the customer's eye, the owner's existing art piece was used as an inspiration for the color palette. Fun and vibrant wallpaper patterns are found throughout the store, and the shimmering gray wallpaper used behind the cashier area was actually used in the 60's.
Antique glass is a stunning backdrop for cocktail mixers in the glam bar, letting them become part of the decor. Warmth comes in via textural details like the bronze-toned sconces and butcher block countertop.
Velvet Walls Evoke Texture, Color of the Sea in Windowless Hallway
A windowless hallway need not be overlooked when it comes to good design. Cynthia Spence sought to bring in the textures of the ocean with Holly Hunt cotton velvet wallcoverings and a faux bois textured tin ceiling in the main floor vestibule at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. An Art Deco architectural grill conceals an electrical panel.
Unfortunately, the condition of the original stairs was such that the stairs themselves could not be repaired, but the original configuration was kept intact and the original curved handrail was able to be salvaged. The new iron railing was "built around" the original banister.
A custom art piece was selected in the beginning and became an inspiration piece for the overall color scheme of this boutique. A glass table with a unique base is an easy centerpiece to capture the customer's eye, and mixed patterns and jewel tones help the jewelry stand out.
The gold-trimmed mirror served as the inspiration for this entryway designed by Jona Collins. Two tones of black stripes offer more sophistication as a backdrop to the mirror than a single tone of black would. Using such a dark color with light trim grounds the space, completing the elegant look.
