As opposed to traditional, this Alabama based interior designer chose a modern contrast to decorate her cottage. Betsy Brown has brilliantly co-ordinated her relaxed and unpretentious home into a place anyone would love to live in. Colours like avocado, burnt reds, and even lavender are crisp against stark white walls.
Antiques are incorporated with restraint, to highlight their unique design allowing for a modern and linear feel.
Artwork is displayed with much interest. Leaning back on walls from table tops to floors, some mounted with precision, other scattered about.
And of course, in areas where a little pieace is required, like bedrooms nnd home office, touches of colour make their way into the remove evoking wonderful emotions. The lavender bedroom (2 above) is quiet and soothing. The office had hints of excitment with and avocado green table, perhaps the inspiration needed to get the day going.
This cottage house is filled with sharp contrasts of colour and furnishings.
I'm Vitania. A furniture maker, design aficionado, and general lover of all things beautiful and simple. Here is where I share my thoughts and inspiration. A well appointed room, the perfect winter coat, a painting I can't stop thinking about, a book I should have read years ago.
