I am a house junkie. I spend more time looking at other people’s homes online than just about anything else and the more and more inspiration there seems to be, the more and more I am drawn to simple, classic design. Design that can breath and allows for a certain amount of life to fill the empty spots. Which is sort of why I love this home designed by Hannah Maple. It’s classic but contemporary, coastal and yet Southern at the same time. Bottom line? It’s just plain lovely. Click here to see even more.
From Hannah… A refined and relatively masculine interior, with measured eclecticism, designed for a successful businessman in Lexington, Kentucky. I chose to create a warm, relaxing environment that’s neutral and subdued, but teeming with interest derived from the use of texture, pattern, and one-of-a-kind furnishings and artwork. I prefer the “thrill of the hunt,’” and therefore always provide my clients with unique conversation pieces, such as the antique leather club chairs in which Ella Fitzgerald once sat. The interior was designed to be an inspiring yet relaxing retreat from the busy everyday life of my client and his business–an approachable space in which he can entertain, unwind, and spend time with his family.
Neutral is a state of mind. It’s infusing simple, peaceful colors with warmth, texture and all out style. We loved the Hannah Maple designed home so much – from the art to the one of a kind estate pieces – though we wanted to see what it looked like with really easy to find, affordable items that would also go the distance with time. Thus, our Get the Look!
In a swirl, starting from the top left corner…
1. Painting. Zatista is the best spot ever to find affordable (ish) one of a kind art. And this piece by Jaime Watson captures the modernity of the inspired space while still feeling like “forever.”
2. Cow Hide Rug. I have this thing for hide rugs. I wish that imitation versions were as beautiful as their orignal counterparts though this one by World Market is just too good to resist. I love the soft hue and think that it would bring such warmth to a space like this.
3. The real statement pieces in the Hanna Maple home are the distressed leather club chairs. We found these by Arhaus that capture that same rustic, but fabulous statement that the original ones do. Plus, we actually own a leather chair by Arhaus and can vouch for the fact that they are extra comfy.
4. Depending on the size of the room you are working with, this West Elm rug just may be the answer to all of your soft underfoot dreams. It’s organic, eclectic and wildly chic.
5. Although the orginal space had an amazing wooden coffee table, we took one look at this seagrass version from Mecox Garden and were totally sold. It’s beyond and will add a lovely texture to the space.
6. We searched high and low for the perfect pillows and while pillows are generally the easiest way to update a room, they can also be the most difficult element to decide upon…if for not other reason that there are a zillion options. But then we spied this fabric from West Elm and were pretty much done. It adds a layer of organic charm to the space and we heart it. Big time.
7. Painting. One more Jaime Watson painting by Zaptista, this one a bit brighter in hue and sparkle.
8. Books. A stack of books will make the space feel lived in and guests will love getting to know you through your choices. May we suggest that you also pop the Style Me Pretty Weddings book right on top because, well, it would look SO perfect here!
9. We found our console at of course, Restoration Hardware. Because RH just does that organic modern look so so well. Be mindful of this particular piece though as it’s quite large. Gorgeous but needs a pretty large wall to carry the weight.
10. A beautiful potted Orchid will give your space life while still feeling really modern and chic.
11. The light in the Hannah Maple home is one of the main appeals. We found this round version at Circa lighting and feel like it would look quite smashing with the like-minded pieces that we pulled.
12. Farrow & Ball Castle Gray was our choice for wall color. It’s this gorgeous dusty green/gray hue that will look stunning in the various lights of the day. That said, we also think the walls would look pretty lovely in a simple white.
