I found this wonderful website, Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles,
with these rooms that were designed by Decorator Phoebe Howard. Though the home is contemporary, she added old pieces to mix in with the new... …like the placement of the vintage camera on top of a small stack of books. I like the balance and symmetry here with the mirror that pulls your eye upwards and then back downwards to the stabilizing piece, the old wooden table. A beige background with pops of green in the pillows, the wallpaper & matching curtains and the darker shade of green in the bedside lamp make the look more organic. I love all of the texture and the mixture of wood tones. My favorite thing about this room is that wonderful chandelier. It has such pretty curves that look like a flower. Now notice how the shades of the bed, lampshades, carpet, side table and linens all meld together and then the pops of rust at the end of the bed match that of the flowers in the vase. Little decorating details like this allow the eye to move around the room – focusing first on the cubes then over to the bedside table. Do you see how that worked? This is a wonderful website with so much information for decorating and design. So glad I found it and I hope you will take a moment to visit it, too.
