Beverly was smitten the moment she walked through the floor door. With natural light, tall ceilings, and views of the Twickenham area that were unparalleled she could see the potential in this historic home.

Yet despite all its negatives like out of date spaces in the bathroom and industrial wiring left over from its previous office residents, there was just something about the house. It felt special. The tall and gracious rooms were warm, and you could feel their sense of place in time. The natural light was amazing. She knew that this fine historical house could once again become a residence, its rooms filled with love and laughter that only a family could bring.

The Original House on Gates

The House on Gates, a handsome Dutch Colonial, was solid white stucco with an asphalt-shingled roof had been put on in the 1920s, the last time the house had been completely remodeled. Over the years, the old-world red color of the roof shingles had faded to a luscious shade of silver-pink. The main body of the 1818 house had a gambrel roof that was put on during the renovation; the side wings, part of an 1834 addition, had a flat roof hidden behind a short parapet wall. Strong front columns stood about 12 feet tall and 24 inches round and had Doric-style capitals. The house had large hand-blown glass window panes, six over six, and a charming pergola off the side. Beverly thought it was one of the best-looking houses in Twickenham.

Dr. Patz, Andrea Wilson and Dr. Stewart with the Bronze Healthcare Award for Huntsville Pediatric Associates

Two of the six ASID awards we won last month were for commercial design: Gold in Large Retail for Osborne’s Jewelers, and Bronze in Healthcare for Huntsville Pediatric Associates. 

Most people do not realize Accents of the South does commercial design work in addition to residential.  These two types of design are extremely different.  Since commercial spaces are used by the public, space planning and finish selections are crucial, and special rules and regulations must be followed.  Through careful thought and planning, both of our winning projects are functional and beautiful spaces everyone can enjoy.

We’ve also had the privilege of presenting the awards to Osborne’s Jewelers and Huntsville Pediatric Associates, and they couldn’t be happier to have award-winning space!Accents of the South by Beverly Farrington - Huntsville Interior Design - picture1 Huntsville Alabama Commercial Interior Designers %

                                                                                                                                                                  

Osborne’s Jewelers: Gold Large Retail

Accents of the South by Beverly Farrington - Huntsville Interior Design - osborne-jewelers Huntsville Alabama Commercial Interior Designers %

Our main goal was to accomplish the various requirements and safety concerns necessary to run a large jewelry store, all the while maintaining that showcasing the product was our number one priority.  We achieved this by keeping the layout simple and not overwhelming and selecting finishes that accentuated the jewelry, not detracted from it.  We chose warm neutrals as our backdrop.  Subtle signage was designed to give direction to the cases without competing with what was in them.  Velvet benches and gilded accents topped off our design.

Our clients wanted their busy Pediatric offices to be happy and playful for their young clientele without being over stimulating.  It was also important for each of the five pods for the eight doctors to be distinguishable from each other.  We accomplished this by selecting colorful accents to achieve a cheerful, youthful feel seen in the carpet, walls and whimsical artwork.  Pods were color coded with our vibrant accent colors: pink, blue, yellow and green.  The space is now fun and playful, the perfect space for children of all ages.

Baby Girl Nursery in Huntsville Alabama

Accents of the South by Beverly Farrington - Huntsville Interior Design - Baby-Girl-Nursery-in-Huntsville-Alabama-Pinterest Baby Girl Nursery in Huntsville Alabama %

When you’re expecting a baby one thing many mothers look forward to is designing the nursery. That was no different for our lead designer, Andrea Wilson, when she was expecting her baby girl Letty. Her Baby Girl Nursery in Huntsville Alabama was a labor of love and helped her get ready for the arrival of her sweet girl.

Since Andrea knew that she would be the one who utilized the room the most and wasn’t an infant she wanted to design a space that she loved. She wanted a sophisticated, relaxing space for herself that still maintained a fun environment that would stimulate Letty as she grew older.

The design for her Baby Girl Nursery in Huntsville Alabama started with the mid-century modern dresser that Andrea found on Craigslist. She loved the clean lines and multiple drawers for all of those tiny clothes. She painted the shell white and changed the hardware to complement her visions for the room.

Once the dresser was ready, Andrea began to add other pieces to the room like the classic Jenny Lind crib in black. She felt that the bold color and clean lines added a level of sophistication that contrasted to the light colors throughout the room. She then painted the walls with Benjamin Moore Cool Mint

Andrea continued accenting the room with pieces that were special to her and added a level of fun and pop to the room. Pieces such as the gold-painted bookshelf in the corner and the fuchsia pink bench were bright and cheery and lent themselves to the feelings that she wanted to experience when she was in the room. And, of course, no Baby Girl Nursery in Huntsville Alabama is complete without at least a few monograms!

Last time we explored our Lendon Custom English Tudor Home, we discussed the exterior finishes and our preliminary design process. Construction is moving along and today we are going to dive further into the design process in regards to the interiors of the home. Our client is downsizing but wants to be able to host her large family as well as her weekly game night. She also had existing furniture she wanted to bring to her new home. The main level is essentially broken down to the master suite and one large open space in the forefront of the house. One of our Custom Home Interior Design challenges was to take this large open space and effectively transform it to accommodate a Great Room, Dining Room, Kitchen and a permanent space for her game night.

Open floor plans can prove difficult for some clients who can’t determine how to effectively divide up space and still have a cohesive room. By utilizing a mix of casual and formal pieces, a warm inviting color palette, and by implementing the interior architecture in line with the Tudor Style, we were able to create four spaces that while distinct in their end use and remain cohesive in style and design. In this open area, our color palette of soft greys and rusts will create a warm space that mingles well with the dark walnut floors and beams that run throughout the room.  A limestone fireplace and custom grey cabinets add architectural interest and incorporate traditional Tudor arches. Velvets and silks will lend an air of formality while print fabrics, an antique demi-lune, and a rustic dining table help to balance out the area, giving our client a versatile, adaptable room where she can entertain regularly but also be comfortable in day in and day out.

Another design goal of this Custom Home Interior Design was to create a fun and feminine Master Bedroom. By utilizing the same warm greys as the front of the house we were able to keep unity throughout the main level. However, in this space rather than rust colors we explored bright and bold hues of pinks and purples. Our focal point is a curved, plum velvet, headboard. The deep color and richness of the velvet add drama to the room and provides a striking contrast to luxurious, billowing silk draperies and white bedding. A velvet striped bench and printed linen accent chair both in vibrant plums and raspberries bring another dose of color to the sumptuous room.

Master Bedroom in Huntsville Alabama

When we designed this sophisticated Master Bedroom in Huntsville Alabama for Pam Gann we designed it to fit her style, desires, and personality. Little did we know that it would be chosen to grace the cover of Southern Homes magazine Beautiful Spaces issue. While we knew the room was beautiful and Pam was extremely happy with it, having it featured in a way such as this was such an honor.

When we began brainstorming the design we started with a damask printed hand towel that Pam loved. We continued the design with a monochromatic blue color scheme that ensures comfort and relaxation when in the bedroom. By mixing textures, such as linen, burlap, and cotton, and using similar tones throughout the room, we created a space full of depth, light, and sophistication.

To complete the Master Bedroom in Huntsville Alabama, we incorporated hints of silver and gold tones in accent furniture and accessories such as the silver leaf chest by Hooker Furniture. The wall color was a traditional and popular choice of Comfort Gray by Sherwin Williams. The trim was painted Monterey White by Benjamin Moore. Adding depth to the room by using a woven rug by Jaipur and damask drapes and bedding by Leitner Leinen brought the room together into one sophisticated and cohesive space.
