Living in Style: Hollie Wood Style
Seamless decor in a home is something coveted by many. But, for those of us who cherish the dusty history of a stand-out thrifted piece of furniture, or the raw character of a found item, sometimes architecture-heavy design can leave much to be desired. Fortunately, there’s a way to satisfy both needs in a home.
Playing with just the right amount of structure, Hollie styles this home with unique finds and the simplicity and beauty of fresh-picked flowers to transform each room of this dwelling into a perfectly balanced and cohesive space.
The structure in the kitchen of this Georgian home is that of the award-winning Bulthaup company. Known for taking a holitistic approach when designing living spaces, this deftly designed kitchen boasts sleek lines and crisp countertops.
Using a Hollie Wood Style signature approach, a found tribal rug was used on the hardwood floor to soften the space, and fresh flowers were placed on the surfaces to add a burst of color and wildness. In addition to the deep blue and rust hues of the rug, Hollie used a salvaged and painted tin roof which was installed on the ceiling to add texture and offset the brightness of the natural light.
In addition to the flowers, fresh produce was also used to balance this space. The green of the artichokes and deep purple of the cauliflower give the room that raw, untamed touch while also adding a rich, natural beauty to the distressed wood of the high-standing island.
Styling room by room, small touches were added—like floral accents—to create the perfect juxtaposition of masculine and feminine. In this living room, the bright green of sago palm leaves complement the deep eggplant of the pillows, while the delicate tea rose complements the modernity of the glass coffee table.
Continuing to work toward the client’s vision, Hollie used a high-end find—an elegant, wooden dining room table—to add charm and character while staying within budget. The classic beauty of the table in combination with a centerpiece of handpicked tea roses is what makes this style-minded dining room look both elegant and effortless.
Whether you are working with a clean slate or looking to revamp a lived-in space, bringing the outside in and adding one-of-a-kind pieces—fresh-picked flowers or the craftsmanship of a sturdy wooden bench—can elevate the look and feel of any abode.
