Rhapsody in Blue

My friend, Kevin Walsh of Bearhill Interiors in Little Rock is a talented interior designer, shop owner, and one of the nicest people I know. His tailored, sophisticated style feels both fresh and timeless. We share an affinity for mixing traditional and modern elements and are both advocates of the cohesive color palette. Case in point, this beautiful house Kevin designed for his long-time clients for whom he had previously designed another home. The house is featured on the cover of the July/August issue of Southern Home magazine. Kevin emphasized the classic architecture and stunning moldings throughout the house with his expert use of color as well as by creating beautiful draperies that frame each room and draw the eye up.

The homeowner liked not only the look of the color blue, but more importantly, the way it made her feel, so Kevin used various shades of blue as the foundation for the color palette throughout the house, which he then accented with various neutrals and hints of lavender and purple. The result is beautiful and makes the entire home feel cohesive. Having an anchor color which serves as the thread that ties one room to the next is paramount in designing a soothing space that will tell the same story from one room to the next.
