sentimental spruce-up

In Maggie Griffin’s line of work, she rarely steps into a space without envisioning how she’d change it from top to bottom. A 1980s mountain home designed by notable Atlanta-based architect Norman Askins became the exhilarating exception. “It was love at first sight,” says Maggie, the owner of her eponymous interior design firm in Gainesville, Georgia. “I didn’t want to move a wall or rip down anything they had done. I wanted it to stay as preserved as possible.” Decoratively stenciled heart pine floors, a linear iron pendant light over the kitchen island, and a set of authentic Windsor dining chairs are among the treasures Maggie kept when she and her husband, David, purchased the 2-acre property and many furnishings from the original owners. One of Maggie’s favorite pieces is the well-worn…

cornucopia of color

AUTUMN UNFURLS Find respite beneath a lofty canopy of trees that soon will stand bare, and at the foot of a prominent stone fireplace, set a table with a profusion of prismatic accents that borrow from fall’s display. Layered linens create a cozy backdrop and introduce pattern and texture with a solid burnt orange base topped by a striped cloth and a napkin duo of auburn under a floral motif. A warm-hued plaid that spans the same organic scheme enlivens a beverage table nearby. White bone china bears differentiated borders with swirls of sage green that resemble leaves dancing in the wind accompanied by notes of rust, beige, black, and gold. The gilded touches are repeated on gleaming chargers and the rims of dainty glasses, while silver lends its own contrasting…

grounded in brown

Elicit the lively tang of autumn as regal rust and golden blooms dance upon a dessert plate placed atop an earthy yet elegant backdrop. The deep walnut tone of Lenox’s Marchesa Couture charger plate is the foundation of this glamorous show as a gilded edge coalesces with matte flatware, a crystal goblet rim, and an interlacing vine on the dinner plate. Burnt orange linens recall the changing outdoor display, enhanced by fiery coral roses to bolster the vitality and create a scene reminiscent of a grand October sunset. (Page 25) Blush overtones in the way of a fringed linen and floral notes blend with the charger in this softer, more informal vignette. A tortoiseshell goblet and daintily curved silverware play upon the lushly colored patchwork patterns encircling the dinner and dessert…

porches & pumpkins

WARM WELCOME Greet autumn and visiting guests with a front-porch display of signature fall finds. Groupings of plump pumpkins and tiny gourds in a variety of textures and colors cascade down the stairs, gaining extra interest from potted mums in brilliant hues. As mild weather takes hold, rocking chairs outfitted with matching throw pillows and a fringed blanket sit ready for quiet respite. A tabletop vignette of sunny flowers and more pumpkins ties the look together. SERENE OUTLOOK Accentuate a neutral exterior palette and verdant landscaping by incorporating harvesttime décor in soft shades. Pale blue, gray, and green pumpkins interspersed with cream-colored varieties elicit a dreamy ambience that’s bolstered by a swing swathed in muted fabrics. White blooms nestled into mismatched planters synchronize with the subtle scheme while lending fresh dimension to the…

poised in time

A haunting love of architecture and a decade in the practice of law permeate interior designer Ty Larkins’s aesthetic with a balance of old and new, as exemplified in his own family’s Baton Rouge home. The 19th-century-style town house, built before he changed career paths, features a stunning library marked by contrast and informed by a fondness for books, years of touring historic manors, and the budget constraints of a youthful pocketbook. “We couldn’t afford to do it in oak, or walnut, or mahogany, or anything like that. We used paint-grade lumber, and we painted it a really dark chocolate brown to sort of suggest this moody library space,” says Ty, who worked two years simultaneously as a lawyer and a designer before focusing on Ty Larkins Interiors full-time in 2008.…
