Atlanta Home for the Holidays Showhouse

The Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Home for the Holidays Showhouse is an Atlanta tradition. Having just packed up my space at the Magnolia Designer Showhouse I was ready to stroll another beautiful home designed by yet another group of talented people.

Swoon over these spaces just a little and then take a friend and go visit this lovely home.

I’m crazy busy with countdown to Christmas break so today I’m doing a photo share and you can take a look at the designers here.

I LOVE that this is another approachable showhouse we can relate to and take ideas from. Notice the details – that’s what makes a room special.

Some days are just nuts. Yesterday I went to the gym for the first time in a long time. I grocery shopped, visited school, had a morning visit of inspiration and sharing with another business woman, picked up the kids, helped with homework, fixed dinner, washed laundry (hubby folded), ran to tile stores, and worked until 8pm. My days are always a bit crazy but at the end of the day I’m with my family and everyone is happy, healthy, and together.

We need to add time in our day for ourselves so that we handle crazy days the best we can- for me it’s got to be exercise with no excuses!

Stay tuned for after photos of a beautiful kitchen and bath reno and progress on a large farmhouse inspired transformation (this is going to be good good good.)

I’d love to help you with your decorating and design needs. Email me at Julie@JulieMontgomeryInteriors.com

Happy Holidays! Peace.

Spring into Color

Spring is finally here. Let’s start by welcoming Spring with a look at this bold, beautiful fabric.

What does Spring mean to you? For me it’s getting back outside and enjoying the extended daylight with my boys. It’s also lounging outside while I can before the mosquitos swarm our yard. I’m excited for our first Spring in our home and am ready to focus on the landscape. I love to plant and there is much to do.

Spring is also all about color. My wardrobe doesn’t look as drab and my toenails get some attention.  My home also gets touches of bright, fresh color with a few decorative additions and always fresh flowers. Do you need a bit of inspiration? (See the sources here)

Featuring Textile Designers

Featuring textile designers seemed only fitting when I tell you I LOVE what these talented artist create and the process that goes into textile design.  So, I’ll be sharing two today and another two talented artist and designers next week.

Be sure to follow those featured!

I’m totally a kid in a candy store when it comes to fabric stores/showrooms. The process behind the beautiful textiles begins with a very talented artist.

Artist and designer Rebecca Atwood shares her latest collections as well as sketches in progress on her blog, here. Be sure to check our her shop too. I absolutely love her line and hope to use it in a future project!

A piece of artwork that is then seen on pillows, window treatments, wall coverings, or table linens is just amazing to me. A great example of the full process from art to textile can be seen by following Designers Guild and its founder, artist, and designer Tricia Guild.

I love their use of scale in patterns and color combinations and am inspired watching how Tricia Guild and her team pull it all together for a completed designed line.

Tricia starts with inspiration that then gets turned into the beginnings of a mood board. See a glimpse into the world of Designers Guild by watching this video with Tricia, here.

 AMAZING artist, designers, creators, style setters–inspiration overload!

Decorate with Inspiration and Patience

Decorating our homes and getting our spaces where we want them is not an instant fix–though I do love sharing fast fix tips! The process of creating a new interior style takes time. As a professional, I spend a lot of time just searching for the items, materials, and colors to help clients determine the style and feeling they want in a space. If you are not sure of where to begin, try this:

 

Find a piece of furniture or accessory item that you love. What is it that you love about it? Is it the color, the shape, the texture, the finish, the clean lines… If this is the feel or style you want in your space then take a picture and keep it with you when you shop for your space.  Be patient when pulling your space together and you’ll be happy with your decisions.

 

Lotus Bar Cabinet by Century Furniture

 

This fabulous cabinet is a launching point for a clients bathroom – but – it’s a bar. They’ll get the look they love with the function they need because the idea and the style has now been defined. I’m researching options that will work for them but keeping this look in mind.

 

Patience and inspiration goes a long way when working on house projects or designing a space. Do your research and Love the Space You’re In!

 

There is a lot of great value in hiring a professional. See juliemontgomeryinteriors.com for all services (in-home or e-Design options available for both organizing and interior styling).

A Simply Savvy Guest Shares Texture and Pattern Design Inspiration

 I’m delighted to have Mari share design inspiration with Simply Savvy readers- what space do you love?

 

Hi, everyone! It’s Mari here from Arcadian Home blog, a great place to find beautiful and interesting home decor inspirations. I’m so happy to be visiting with you at Simply Savvy. Today’s guest post is about spaces that use pattern and texture as an integral part of their designs.

For your decorating inspiration, I’ve brought along eight of my favorite room images that show off intriguing patterns and textures. Please enjoy!

 

Pattern and Texture

 

This corner sitting area is awash in color and intriguing pattern—so chic, yet comfortable and inviting. White on white dimensional framed artwork is a fresh and unexpected textural element in the design.

 

Pattern and Texture

 

The texture and pattern seen in a herringbone wood floor, velvet settee and leopard print pillows, are wonderfully low key in this sophisticated foyer. Table decorations in the space are simple and unassuming compared to other more glamorous elements.

 

Pattern and Texture

 

Jewel tone velvet and decorative pillows on the sofa add beautiful texture to this living room. I love the large Greek key patterned carpet. How amazing is the framed wall art?

 

Pattern and Texture

 

From the colorful space above, we turn to soft and soothing neutrals in this chic bedroom. Pattern on the floor and lovely textures on the bed add subtle interest to the design.

 

Pattern and Texture

 

A creamy Juju hat and monochromatic bedding add softness and lovely texture to this bedroom with its appealing global vibe.

 

Pattern and Texture

 

An all white contemporary bath design is elevated by tone on tone striped walls and lacey pattern. This is such a meticulous use of pattern and visual texture. I also love the tiny sparkly wall sconce.

 

Pattern and Texture

 

This glamorous living room is filled with muted pattern and luxurious texture. It’s a lovely mix of softness, sleek metals and rough rustic elements.

 

Pattern and Texture

 

The designer of these beautiful outdoor spaces brings pattern and texture outside. Black and white stripes are a stunning contrast to the rich greenery—so gorgeous. Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
