I usually love color and pattern. I also love layers and especially enjoy creating collected spaces with personality and meaning for my clients. Usually, this is achieved through a mix of carefully-curated furniture and accessories, a blend of textures with great contrast, and striking art. Every now and then, though, we can all use a little palate cleanser, so I was thrilled to see a new project from the talented Birmingham-based designer, Betsy Brown in the new issue of Veranda. Betsy is incredibly adept at creating spaces in hues of white and cream that exude warmth, richness, and personality, which is no easy feat. This particular home is refined, yet relaxed and inviting.
I don’t know if it is because we are on the cusp of a New Year, but I have been loving neutral palettes with a little carefully-selected color and not much pattern lately. There is something so elegant and refreshing about this type of home. Over the past two years, I worked on a very special project that is mostly white, black, and gray with a couple of pops of color that I have been dying to share with you. It is being published nationally very soon and I can’t wait to share my dear client’s house with you! Stay tuned!
