Downsizing in a chic and artful way . . that was the goal for a new build I helped with on Providence Road here in Charlotte. Designed by Bryan Mermans and built by Royal Building Group it boasts really high ceilings and loads of interesting details and high end finishes. It was a delight to create something unique and one of a kind for one of my favorite clients - Carson Tate !
From the very moment you walk in you can see the detail. Dramatic arches, custom stair railings and beautiful floor. My plan was to create a cohesive color palette first off. Using Ben Moore Decorator white throughout and neutral furniture fabrics, wall papers and tile but with major texture ! Carson is a huge art lover and collector so we were deliberate in their placement.
Take a look !
A small nook by the entry was the perfect spot to place this Clayton Santiago piece. Anchored by a leather accent chair and simple 3 legged side table.
I wanted to focus on the amazing ceiling and archways while filling the main living room with unique pieces. I headed straight to my favorite vendors as well as local artists to create something one of a kind.
A mix of brass, stained wood, raw metal, mohair, nail heads and iron are the name of the game not to mention the gorgeous rug to anchor it all. (The Rug Company Channels rug by Kelly Wearstler)
A custom piece by Jacob Wolfe made to fit perfectly in a small nook.
I wanted a big splash of pattern and color leading to the master bedroom and I immediately thought of this one by Phillip Jeffries ! A showstopper for sure.
Clean, bright and unique in every way.
I didn't stop at the pillows . . . one of my favorite small textiles !
In the dining area, just off the living space, Carson really wanted some drama and she got it.
I started off knowing I wanted a custom dining table... and Josh Utsey created this beauty for us. Brass base and light wood top.
Accent wall, yes please.
One of my favorite new Romo wallpapers ! Look closely it's not only textured ... it's embroidered !
Art by Jeanne Marchand so beautiful, as is this unique fixture available through us .
This sideboard was a labor of love and the one request by Carson. Made in segments of metal and all joined together. Thanks 2dash1 of all the work on this !!
So good. All of this atop of a Kyle Bunting Rug. One of my all time favorite vendors !
The kitchen needed to be beautiful as it opens into the dining room and that it is.
With an open floor plan and classic style we decided to combine wood and paint on all the cabinets. The backsplash and fixtures really set it all off !
Pretty yummy !
Spinning around you have such a pretty view of the entire downstairs !
