Perhaps creating the perfect color palette for an extensive home remodel doesn’t have to be about matching. In fact, choosing a wide variety from a large selection of colors and textures, then purposely not matching may be just the way to go.
This was the precise thought process behind interior designer Tammy Connor’s vision for the Buckhead home of Rod and Linda Gray. While the colors stay understated and soft, a second glance shows the how bold unmatched colors can be.
Among the main goals of the remodel: to make every space in the home more intimate and comfortable. Architect Norman Askins achieved this by scaling back the height of the foyer, creating a sunroom addition, and adding molding. Connor helped by using subtle patterns and avoiding the tendency to over-decorate.
The use of texture also added to the laid-back, serene feel of the design. Linens and velvets brought attention to the antiques that were incorporated into each room, while the use of several of the couple’s original furniture pieces made them feel more at home.
Among the hodgepodge of elements and color variations in this home is a cohesive design that seems to just work. Clearly, matching isn’t the only way to go about it.
