Kay Douglas...

Last week I wrote about my recent trip to South of Market in Atlanta. As promised, I'll take you on a quick a tour of a house Kay Douglas designed in Rosemary Beach.

Kay's signature style is using neutrals with pops of color to make things fun and informal. She's also known for her knack for repurposing old objects. One tell-tale sign of her work is the extensive use of rustic chic lighting fixtures and large-scaled drum shades.

Let's take a look at some of my favorite features of the home.

I know from personal experience that bedside tables are hard to come by. I had a really hard time finding some for our master bedroom. They don't have to match, but take a look at these rustic tables.

{love the lamps, btw}

Upon further inspection…

You'll notice this was once a dining table that was split down the middle to make two end tables. Smart, right. I plan to steal this idea some day.

An old pale used as a basin for the powder room sink…

Wall mounted faucet. Beautiful patina. You certainly wouldn't have to worry about keeping this sink shiny and clean.

In the master, she used a rustic table for the vanity with a vessel sink on top. Another wall-mounted faucet is mounted directly on the mirror. As a mentioned in my earlier post, iron sconces and chandeliers abound at her shop. Love this one.

Moving on to lighting.

The tall ceilings in the master afforded enough height for this enormous drum shade pendant that is centered over the bed.

{notice the reflection of the triple-height bay windows across the room}

From another angle you get a better look at the prints hanging over the headboard. Love them.

The home's color palette is neutral -- dark browns and white slip covers. This bright red over-sized drum pendant adds a big splash of color in this bedroom. It's really the only vibrant color seen in the house.

 Here, she has framed maps that pick up the red tones in the shade.

Wire pendants with white canvas liners that look like cafe curtains hang over the kitchen island.

That's all for now. The house is at located at 383 West Water Street. Watch the video on the rental site for the full tour. While you're there, check out 384 West Water that was being built during our last visit.  With a bit of snooping we discovered the house is owned by HGTV's Vern Yip and his adorable partner Wag-A-Lot owner Craig Koch. It is amazing.
