This was my first photo shoot back with Jackie Bayer and Sadie Sanchez of Amanda Austin Interiors. It felt so good to be back with them and see their design transforming one more home. For upcoming shoots I love hearing about the rooms through emails; however it does not compare to the feeling you feel when you step inside a home that has been designed with precision of colors and layers, attention to detail, and purpose. Senior designer Jackie carefully selected each detail in creating each individual space. She gave them life. Below Jackie explains how each room photographed was transformed. I love understanding the how and the inspiration behind each space. Thank you Jackie and Sadie for allowing me to capture your design work. It is truly beautiful. Again, take your time and enjoy seeing all the details that create beautiful spaces that are changing their clients lives one home at a time! ENJOY!!!
We couldn’t resist using this deep navy blue (almost black) to contrast the
feminine pink, yellow & light blue blossoms on the drapery and custom ottoman.
Originally this space was a catch-all room for the lady of the house; however upon the arrival of their youngest daughter,
this room came to life just a few weeks before.
Jackie’s client uses the mirrored vanity to put on her make up and enjoys the freshness of the decor and fun accessories.The organic texture of the neutral, wool Greek key rug grounds all of the bright colors and shiny surfaces in this sitting room.
The most formal space in this young family’s home, this is where they and their extended families gather for birthdays and holidays.
For contrast to the otherwise formal pieces, we added a jolt of black on the caned head chairs.
Bringing this room together with a little layer of eclectic is the upholstered nailhead chest.
We chose a Champagne Metallic Chinoisserie Wallcovering as the backdrop for the room.
Their client have an affinity for Asian inspired art and collections.
In keeping with the traditional style of the home, the table, chairs and sideboard are all inspired by period antiques.
Foyer: Purposefully understated since this space is the crossroad for the 1st Floor.
Jackie chose to treat this space with a Damask, tone on tone Grasscloth.
This adds a luxurious texture but with little contrast to it’s adjacent rooms. The antique bench is original to Baltimore, made by Bagby Furniture.The antique coat tree is a family piece that was in the husband’s family’s home in California.Only just months prior to the arrival of her baby sister, this room was filled with saturated pinks, citrus green and navy blue.
She fell in love with the blue and white Lily Pulitzer dragon fabric on her chair,
and the rest immediately came together using that as the inspiration.
The room was designed with longevity in mind, so she could enjoy it through even her teen years.This room was also infused with a little Asian inspiration.
The vintage artwork above her chair was given to the family by the daughter’s grandfather.
