The cool gray walls and warm gold accents are one of my favorite couples. They just work so well together! Don't be afraid to mix your metals either. Notice our chandelier is polished nickel. I love it when everything isn't 'matchy-matchy'.
Also note the scale of our bachelor chest nightstands. One of the most common mistakes I see in my client's homes, when I first come in to help, are nightstands and bedside lamps that aren't the correct scale. Push the limit with these pieces! You'll be surprised how much bigger your space looks when you use larger pieces.
Keep your nightstands clutter free. Dress them up. This is the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing you see at night. Use items that relax you and make you happy, like your favorite photos, flowers or simple trinkets. Simple is the key word here. A nightstand can get bogged down really quick. If you have lots of little things you love, switch them out often. They don't all have to be displayed at the same time.
Some of the pretty details...
I love distressed hardware on a smooth, refined veneer. It creates such wonderful tension.
Thank you to the Threadgill family for trusting me implicitly with your home. We've got lots more beauty to show from this stunning Dallas residence.
Isn't the beginning of a new month such an energizing time? It's a fresh start. I particularly love April. Easter and celebrating our Savior is right on the horizon. Spring temps, windows open and the greening up of everything makes me want to tackle tasks. We live in South Texas, so luckily we are already experiencing Spring, sorry Northern people :-/ I began some planting yesterday...petunias, salvia, snapdragons, dahlias. Got my herbs in too...sweet basil, flat leaf Italian parsley, cilantro, rosemary. We've got lots more to do but it's a good start.
I hope you're having a great start to the week...and the month. Happy April!
