Piper Raffle and her husband wanted to buy a house in Tulsa. But they were split on what sort of house to buy.
She was leaning toward something older with character. And her husband wanted a house with fewer problems.
Bold Patterns & Colors Abound:
Once the decision of which house to buy was made, they recruited Tulsa designer Mel Bean, of Mel Bean Interiors, to help make their vision come true.
Personally I have never embraced the leopard spots as a decor pattern for my own home. But I always seem to like it when I see it in other homes.
How about you?
Kitchen & Dining:
Obviously they went with lots of colors and patterns. As well as a somewhat bohemian design element mixed with traditional furnishings.
There is lots of navy blue in this home. The kitchen cabinets are blue and their window covering is blue and beige.
Then the dining table and the rug underneath are more neutral and traditional in design.
The gold detail of the drawer pulls adds a bit of elegance to the space.
The room that is a living space/library is a moody room with darker colors as well. Purple and lavender furniture and dark bookshelves make a statement here.
The designer said they layered patterns methodically and used anchoring elements to balance the bold selections.
This bathroom is beautiful with a high end look.
I love the gold faucets with the towel rod placed in front instead of on the wall.
And just look at that wall pattern!
A gallery wall descends down the staircase. Once again we see the leopard print on the flooring of the stairs.
In the bedroom neutrals were chosen for a more relaxed and sedate look.
The Master Bathroom:
In the bathroom, all sleek modern black and glass, a leopard print was brought in once again as an accent.
Blue is back in the office area. A neutral wood table in the center of the room provides a bit of a balancing act.
For the youngster in the house, a bright colorful room with a tepee provides a bedroom as well as a play space.
Would you choose these bold colors for your home?
