Dining table/Grey Furniture.
Hi, friends! Angela Blehm is sharing her home with us today. It’s FILLED with so much color and modern design. You’re in for a treat!
“We found our house in the country three years ago. It was a dated, nondescript box that managed to charm us with its potential. I liked that it had traditional sensibilities that I could punch up with a shot of modern and color. My husband liked the tall ceilings and openness. After a tortuous 6-month renovation with an ill-chosen contractor, we finally moved in. Since then, I’ve embraced “slow decorating” and have taken my time creating each space.
“Like most people, we spend a good dose of our time in the kitchen. It is the largest room in our house, giving the five of us plenty of space to mill about. The large window washes the room with light and offers us a lush view of the woods out back. The mint cabinets, a color that I hand mixed when I couldn’t find the right shade, make for a cheery backdrop for family meals and school projects. I had the metal chairs powder coated in blue to punctuate the marble table. And, the large chalkboard wall is a rotating art gallery and backdrop to many family photos.
Chairs/Y Living, Canvas/Blick.
“I am a painter so my art spills over onto our walls—pieces from my childhood to current work. Imagery runs from the representational to a big yellow circle above the dining room fireplace (which our kids swear is a blank emoji face).
Candleholder/CB2, Painting/Gillian Bryce Fine Art, Wallpaper/Schumacher.
“I love shopping for vintage items for our home, and while I don’t always have the patience to wait for the right piece to come along, I try to buy vintage when I can. The curved mid-century sofa in the dining room once belonged to a prominent person in town. The cabinet in the side entry is a 1940s Mengel Module that can be reconfigured with an ingenious peg design. The 1960s painting in the entry is by Martin Sumers. And, a framed vintage tablecloth hangs in the side entry. I love our vintage lamps around the house, but my favorite object has to be the plaster torso in the living room that I found at Scott Antique Market in Atlanta.
Sofa/Restoration Hardware, Floor lamps/Bed Bath & Beyond.
Chandelier and sconces/Circa Lighting.
“If I’m not in the kitchen, I’m in the home studio. The room overlooks the woods and has the best light—ideal situations for making art. Things that don’t make the cut with the family in the house, like a pair of orange mannequin legs and a plaster doll head, are perfectly at home in the studio.
Bed/Restoration Hardware, Rug/Stark, Black & white box/West Elm.
“What I can’t find, I make. Or, I find someone to make it. Chris Lund is the carpenter extraordinaire who helps us in countless projects around the house. He built the burgundy bedside tables in our room from a drawing I did. He also built the window seat and ottoman in the playroom and the wood panels in the dining room I painted rainbow bright. He’s done it all!
Sofa/CB2, Table/West Elm, Mat frames/Pottery Barn.
Mirror/Ballard Designs, Gold frames/Room & Board, Rug/eSale Rugs.
“I also enjoy decorative painting and painted over scaled peonies on the guest room walls, a soothing backdrop for the 1980s bed I had powder coated in fire-engine red.
“The bed in our daughter’s room is over 100 years old (and has collapsed a time or two!), and I found the large, vintage carved wood doors that divide her room from her closet in the back of a dusty junk store.”
We love how every room is decorated differently, yet it all flows together. Thanks so much for sharing, Angela! You can visit her website here and follow her on Instagram here. xo.
