Interior Designer Style

The other day I came across this image of a an elegant entry hall from a home in Florida. It was designed by Suellen Gregory an interior designer based in Virginia USA.

I love the large coral coloured lantern, and the coordinating box pleat skirted table cover, set against a cool white background - not to mention the fabulous architecture.

I was so taken with the freshness of the styling that I looked up more of her work. And, as a curtain maker, I particularly liked the interiors showing lovely soft furnishings.

The following images are my favourite rooms by Suellen:

The colour in this kitchen comes from the blue in the loose covers on the bar stools which is repeated in the contrast borders on the Relaxed Roman blinds  ...

Bamboo style blinds now come in a wide range of colours and weaves. They are a really stylish option and look great here in this pale blue almost 'coastal' style scheme ....  

This pretty London blind with it's curved pleated heading is the focal point in this little bedroom....

In this room Suellen has designed a fixed curtain which overlaps at the top and is held back with high tiebacks. Using the full height of the room increases sense of drama and adds elegance.

Another soft relaxed Roman blind. I like the way the striped fabric has been used at an angle to border the edges - very smart ...

Ok, no curtains or blinds in the next picture, but I couldn't resist this cute puppy among the cushions - love the trimming.
