|The foyer/dining room. The pale gray walls and creamy white trim make it modern.|
My scans do not do any of these pictures justice!
In case you missed it, in the May-June issue of Veranda there was a great reminder that we have a choice to live beautifully everyday....at any age! I have looked at the images of Furlow Gatewood's house so many times, I almost feel like I've been there.
|Left side of the living room.|
Shutters are all that are needed since the furniture and objects are of such quality.
Of course, I would love to know what book titles are on those shelves!
|Right side of the living room.|
The antique pieces with their white upholstery and slipcovers look so fresh.
The blue accents and geometric pillows on the sofa make the room feel modern.
|The guest bedroom.|
This two-toned 4 poster bed was designed by Gatewood and Rosselli.
The simple linens and the leaf pillows on the bench give it a youthful touch.
I thought Mr. Gatewood's home, if you look closely at the details, was like a free design lesson for the enthusiast and a great reminder for those of us who often work with pieces clients have already acquired. It demonstrates that whether you're just starting out or have a lifetime of possessions, the components of pulling a great room together are the same. Classic pieces, antiques and collections, a great paint color and updated fabrics, plus disciplined editing, can make any room beautiful...at any age!
