Chic Shelves in Three Simple Steps

You’ve finally found the bookshelf of your dreams and all seems right in the world – until you realize said bookshelf is empty. Standing tall in your library or living room with nothing to showcase but the price tag and perhaps a shipping kernel or two. And, your bookshelf is only a million accessory combinations away from being perfect. Where do you start? Let these three simple tips get you going, and if all else fails, we’ve got your back. Step #1: Symmetry Start by using larger accessories to anchor the shelf and add a sense of rhythm, seen above with a plaster urn and matching planters. Keeping a symmetrical pattern at eye level will make more “organic” styling look purposeful instead of chaotic. Step #2: Cohesive Variety Collect art and objects that differ in shape but share the same tonal values or subject matter. We curated a collage behind…

Our Top Picks: Objet Noir

From vessels to interesting objects, accessories are what bring personal touches into a space. When looking to make a strong impact, less is more; choose a few items with bold color and interesting shape versus too many. In our years of practice, nothing cuts through a tablescape or bookcase like a stroke of black. Leave the tchotchkes at grandma’s house and let a dark silhouette make a strong statement with our top picks below: Sources 1. 3-Piece Pyramid Object Set – Dwell Studio / 2. Horace – Made Goods / 3.

Living With The Butcher

As our much-anticipated butcher shop project breaks ground this week, we were inspired to bring you the fundamental elements of our design in the form of a farm-fresh living space. In true Savannah style, kick back in those classic Hunter boots on an industrial coffee table while getting face to face with a longhorn – it’s what’s for dinner. 1. Set the tone more towards sophisticated than barnyard-chic with Cisco’s Spider Chandelier. Spanning an impressive 72″, the large fixture can fill a room without seeming too heavy. 2. Always have the fields on your mind even when inside with a geometric planter from Light & Ladder. Try filling with a low-maintenance variety like jade or a common succulent. 3. Take fancy farm living head on with this stunning photographic print from on of our favorite art sources, The Animal Print Shop. Use a minimal mat with a 1-inch frame…

Get The Look: Parisian Glam

Image via CNN It’s every American’s dream to wake up hearing the streets of Paris and feel time stand still. As the scent of freshly baked croissants linger through your window, you seem drawn to grab a bite before taking a long stroll through a nearby garden. If the vie de francaise has been calling your name as of late, you’re not alone. Maybe it’s the promise of sweet Summer romance, or the call to take an afternoon off and picnic in Forsyth Park. To bring the romance of Paris back home, we’ve put together a French-inspired contemporary master suite that aims to make the days grow longer and the nights to be full of nothing short of magic. 1. We set the tone to this posh Parisian suite with romantic lilac tones found in Noble and Wood’s Berlingot Wallpaper. Place behind the bed for a feature wall or use as a poppy dresser drawer liner…
