Fabulous Room Friday 03.03.11

This gorgeous study by Atlanta designer, Amy D. Morris represents my style so perfectly! Designed for Atlanta Homes and Lifestyle’s 2010 Christmas Show House (they create the BEST show houses), it features glossy black walls, creating the perfect backdrop for the show-stopping R.Hughes sea urchin-inspired chandelier and the other gold accents in the space, like the beautiful shelving. I also love the tufted zebra chair and the use of orange and peacock blue, two of my favorite colors.

The cognac leather chairs lend a sense of warmth to the space while the Plexiglas desk seems to float within the space. The look is masculine with an ultra-glamorous touch…right up my alley! By the way, I spent some time with the magazine’s editorial director, Clint Smith in LA earlier this week and he is as delightful as he is talented. He just started a fantastic blog, Smith on Style. Be sure to check it out!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, no matter what you’re doing!

I think the area rug is my favourite part of the room! The colour is gorgeous, especially with the different neutrals in the room.

Yes, I absolutely adored this room - so fabulous!! Orange and peacock blue are 2 of my favorite colors as well. I like all the same features you do especially the contrast of the leather chairs with the stylish lucite desk. And I already discovered Clint's blog and commented on the delicious butterscotch pudding!!

This is one of my favorite studies in one of my favorite show houses. The large mirror brings in so much light and the wing chairs look so inviting. Makes me want to curl up and read a good book!
