MARKET READY: CATHERINE M. AUSTIN INTERIOR DESIGN IN OCTOBER TRADITIONAL HOME

Participating in the Traditional Home / Junior League of High Point Showhouse in April was one of the most gratifying experiences I have had in my career. I The creativity and camaraderie of the design community blew me away and seeing it in print brings back a flood of fond memories! We have all been anxiously awaiting the October issue to share all of our hard work for a wonderful cause…benefiting the Junior League’s community programming for High Point. Thank you to all of the gracious editors at Traditional Home, the countless volunteers from the Junior League and the amazing sponsors that brought our visions to life!

DAUGHTER’S BEDROOM BY CATHY AUSTIN BY CLARA HANEBERG

The final stop on the second floor is Cathy Austin’s beautiful daughter’s bedroom. Blessed with great bones—note the 10 1/2-foot ceilings and swoonworthy windows—the space is impeccably tailored from head to toe. Shaped valances mimic the Moroccan scalloping on the patterned headboard.

Circa Lighting’s brass orb chandelier and the pillows’ chopstick monogram reiterate the room’s Eastern influence. Overhead, Pratt & Lambert’s pale-pink paint in high-gloss finish complements the vintage Murano glass lamp on the bedside table. A tufted-velvet bench with Lucite legs and an antique English settee updated in sumptuous animal print round out the dazzling sanctuary.

There’s a lot to love in these beautiful showhouse bedrooms…click on the image below for a video tour of the spaces.

BEFORE:

Winter 2015 012

womanuntitledpink

I envisioned my “imaginary” client as the sophisticated daughter of the family. She is well-travelled, artistic, and likes a modern, yet glamourous room that still reflects her Southern roots. A portrait by favorite artist, Kate Long Stevenson, (from Hidell Brooks Gallery) became my muse for the project. I had her in mind whenever I was making decisions for the space. The portrait and the large vintage abstract provided the color palette that inspired the design scheme. The room is a blend of unique pieces from High Point based craftsmen along with a collection from her travels around the world. A Moroccan inspired headboard, Murano glass lamps, original modern art, bespoke linens, dressmaker detailed drapery, and glamorous materials such as shagreen, agate, brass, and velvet add to the feminine mystique of the space. I indulged myself with an “imaginary” trip around the world for inspiration for the space…from the palaces of Morocco and India to the Murano glass factories and sunsets on the Nayarit Riviera.

MODERN GLAMOUR WITH BERNHARDT FURNITURE

Every market, I am always anxious to see what Bernhardt Furniture is introducing.  Their showroom is always one of the best in terms of decor, styling, and creatively showing their new lines each season.  I have especially loved their most recent collections that epitomize “Modern Glamour.”  Their artisans take traditional forms and enhance them with luxurious finishes and jewelry-like details giving them a more contemporary feel.

In all of the new introductions, especially the Criteria Collection, each item is designed to be a showpiece. Lighter finishes such as pearly white and dove gray allow the character of the wood to shine through. Exotic surfaces including mother of pearl, silver leaf, mirror polished metal, lizard and embossed reptile leather add a unique and luxurious element to the collection. Inspired by jewelry, cabinetry hardware in intricate forms such as geometric pierced pulls and knobs inset with embossed leather adds a perfect finishing touch.  “The furniture we bring into our homes can be a form of self- expression,” says Heather Eidenmiller, director of brand development. “These inventive surfaces play with visual perception. We think they will help people to express themselves with a new kind of power, drama, and simplicity.”

In addition to these finishes, Bernhardt has also introduced pattern including inlays, laser-cuts, and frame motifs in casegoods and occasional furniture, along with patterned upholstery items. “Pattern creates energy in a purposeful object that can also be read as something decorative,” says Heather Eidenmiller. “As these pieces are intriguing, but not overtly trendy, we think people will find them to be powerful, fresh, and timeless.”

The entire Criteria Collection is sophisticated and sleek, showing influences of Sheraton furniture especially in the table bases and chair legs. The pieces can easily mix with various styles to create a modern and luxurious interior.  I have included some of my favorite pieces below followed by some other pieces that I define as “Modern Glamour” from Bernhardt’s other lines. All of the new introductions will be available this fall.

BERNHARDT FURNITURE 2015 SPRING MARKET & SHOWHOUSE SNEAK PEEK

Bernhardt_exclusive for Cathy Austin_design around art

Bernhardt Furniture is one of the generous vendors that has helped me with my bedroom for the Traditional Home / Junior League High Point Showhouse opening this weekend during High Point Furniture Market. I fell in love with so many pieces introduced this past fall and knew I had to use them in my bedroom designed for my “imaginary” client, who is the sophisticated daughter of this family. She is well-travelled, artistic, and likes a modern, yet glamorous room that still reflects her Southern roots. Bernhardt’s Salon and Jet Set collections were perfect for this storyline and I am thrilled with how the room is coming together. If you are coming to High Point for market, please come by for a visit and see how all of the designers have worked their magic on this grand old High Point manse. Click here for tickets and hours.

Bernhardt recently celebrated its 125th anniversary with a year-long celebration honoring culture, heritage and a legacy of giving. This iconic brand has always been one of the industry’s most dynamic and stable furniture institutions. Devoted to creativity and the artistry of furniture making, the new introductions each market are always highly anticipated. In addition to producing extraordinary collections, the company is still a family owned business with a strong commitment to people, relationships, and the welfare of the local community.  Since the theme of the Showhouse is “From High Point to the World,” I could not think of a more appropriate brand to showcase in my room.

For the Showhouse, I styled the brass bookcase with a collection of design books, brass animals art and objects from the daughter’s travels abroad . The various shelf heights makes the piece incredibly versatile in any interior for display or for storage. The luxurious finish also adds a touch of glamour to the room.

SALON NIGHTSTAND

The Salon Nightstand is the perfect scale for any bedroom.  Here I have used two to flank a kingsize upholstered bed.  The tabletop provides ample space for any size lamp along with other bedside necessities and the drawer is an added bonus. The square tapered legs, cross stretcher, and brass escutcheon add elegant detail.

Bernhardt let me take an exclusive “sneak peek” at some of the pieces being introduced at market this week. Over 100 new works of 21st century modern furniture will be exhibited. Each item is designed to be a showpiece with simplified classic forms  and luxurious multidimensional surfaces and fabrics.

TRADITIONAL HOME & JUNIOR LEAGUE HIGH POINT SHOWHOUSE SNEAK PEEK

From High Point to the World!

10943739_847226605349380_3793562305204195845_o

Next month, I am thrilled to be participating in the 2015 Designer Showhouse sponsored by Traditional Home and the Junior League of High Point. The “From High Point to the World” themed showhouse will host a grand opening party the evening of Friday, April 17, 2015, and open to public for tours beginning Saturday, April 18th. Tickets are available by clicking here.

“We’re thrilled to include the Junior League of High Point’s Designer Showhouse as part of the Traditional Home 2015 National Showhouse Tour,” says Ann Maine, editor in chief of Traditional Home. “The High Point Market is the heart of home furnishings industry and the opportunity to bring recognition to both talented designers and leading furniture companies only fuels our enthusiasm. Through the decades, the Terry family has been an integral and influential part of the city’s history. It’s appropriate to pay tribute to them by showcasing their beautiful Tudor Revival home. Collaborating with the Junior League to help raise funds to benefit their community programs is something the Terry family would have appreciated.”

Nancy and Randall B. Terry built the house circa-1912.  It is likely one of the earliest homes in High Point’s Roland Park, as well as one of the first examples of the Tudor Revival movement in High Point. Randall B. Terry Jr., publisher of the High Point Enterprise newspaper, was the last of the Terry family to reside in the home.  Sitting on a corner double lot with a pool and a sprawling back yard, the house boasts 15 rooms with many period details as well as a separate two-story carriage house.

randall

Businessman, newspaper publisher, and philanthropist Randall B. Terry, Junior cherished the companionship of nine Golden Retreivers he named for figures in Greek Mythology-Achilles, Ajax, Apollo, Athena, Diana, Nike, Rumor, Venus and Zeus. At the time of his death in 2004, Mr. Terry agreed to have a caretaker live in his home with his 6 remaining dogs until the last one passed away. In the summer of 2014, the remaining dog Diana died. For those who did not know Mr. Terry well, he referred to the house as the “million dollar doghouse.”

Before – Upstairs Bedroom

I fell in love with the history of this house and envisioned it as being the epicenter of High Point shenanigans in its hey day. I was excited to showcase the local talent and work with so many design peers I admire. In many ways, the design community is just like High Point…a gracious small Southern town. Everyone knows everyone and enjoys their company from the sophisticated grand dames to the talented eccentric characters!

My bedroom is located on the front of the house with abundant natural light and elegant 10 1/2 foot ceilings. I envisioned my “imaginary” client as the sophisticated daughter of the Terry clan. She is well-travelled, artistic, and likes a modern, yet glamorous room that still reflects her Southern roots.

IMG_1245

This large vintage abstract painting provided the color palette that inspired the design scheme. The room is a blend of unique pieces from High Point based craftsmen along with a curated collection from her travels around the world. A Moroccan inspired headboard, Murano glass lamps, original modern art, bespoke linens, dressmaker detailed drapery, and glamourous materials such as shagreen, agate, brass, and velvet will add to the feminine mystique of the space.

woman,untitled(pink)

A portrait by one of my favorite artists, Kate Long Stevenson, (from Hidell Brooks Gallery) became my muse for the project.  I had her in mind whenever I was making decisions for the space. I begin with the artwork to ignite a spark of inspiration.  In the same way a museum exhibition is created to enhance the colors of the paintings, I pull colors out of the art to design the scheme. My interiors tell the story of the character that inhabits the space. Aesthetically, I incorporate something modern along with something antique and include a mix of high and low elements that are reflective, sculptural, textured and natural.

Indian inspired prints and embroidery with cut velvet animal print from Clarence House will cover custom designed pieces in the space.

HIGH POINT TREND: MAXIMALISM

More is more, less is a bore. – Robert Venturi

d7d4ae07f6b7ee44abfbcef390f1f6a2

For all of the maximalists out there, High Point Fall Market was heaven!  Bold, colorful, attention grabbing pieces took center stage signaling a lovely return for a more optimistic outlook for the future of design.

Having pulled out of the great recession, consumers seem to be enjoying a return to “more is more” and “big is better”. Almost a celebration, it is perhaps the desire to distance ourselves from the last ten years of financial woes. We are seeing displays of maximalism everywhere—jewelry, watches, fashion. Even homes are returning to their larger proportions with square footage trends back to all time highs. Such displays of wealth are making a comeback, and this fall Century pays homage to this moment with a lobby full of bold patterns, rich textures and jewel tone finishes. Indeed a sensory playground, it is amazing how much punch can be packed into one room!-Century Furniture

IMG_4161

Century Furniture set the tone with their private elevator upholstered in Schumacher’s bold Chiang Mai print. Their showroom sparkled with a mixture of glamorous finishes such as brass, lacquered surfaces and lucite. Updating a traditional form with a modern flair, their high-backed chair (also upholstered in Chiang Mai) on lucite legs was the first piece seen in the entry continuing the theme from the elevator.

i3_44_1046_0314_mediumDesign icon Windsor Smith designed this beautiful tete-a-tete which is almost 6 feet in diameter.  It is a perfect sculptural object for any room or grand hall. Here it is shown in a subdued grey with cream legs but can be customized in any finish or fabric for maximum impact.

Rugs are often thought of as art for the floor. This silk /wool abstract rug from Marc Phillips certainly makes a statement. The collection is a tribute to action painting and characterized by being both naughty and smart, the same combination the artist Jurgen Dahlmanns likes in people.

I have used this image in a previous post, but these colorful patchwork hide rugs from Madisons were absolutely DIVINE and I cannot wait to use them in a future project.

Brass continued to be a dominant trend in many collections.  Bernhardt employed jewelry like detailing in several pieces from this bookcase to cabinetry hardware.

The cerulean blue leather and brass chairs had a 70s/ Halston-esque vibe that is both dazzling and sophisticated.

His eclectic juxtaposition of materials is seen in this cocktail table composed of lustrous brass orbs and a gorgeous veined stone top.

The Petite Kelly Brass Cocktail Table from Taylor Burke Home looked like an Op Art painting with its Mirth Studio tiles used as the top. The London Tufted Ottoman in hot pink velvet in the background is equally as bold.

Laura Kirar’s new collection for Baker Furniture was inspired by her travels as well as her evolving art and design. She is known as a designer with the soul of an artist. The modern channel low backed Helena sectional blends beautifully with a grouping of her Jade Accent Tables.

SkLO_Mantle_2SkLO_Join
Even the accessories took on a more is more flavor. Sklo Studio debuted their join and mantle vessels. The join vessels are composed of two separate cylinders fused together while hot.  The color combinations are complimentary and the palette bright. The mantle vessels are organic spherical shapes with overlapping triple color schemes of two opaque colors cupping a third transparent color void. They are then given a thick outer layer of clear crystal making them appear to float.
