Thursday Design Inspiration: The Creations of Eddie Ross


EDDIE ROSS TRANSFORMS A ROOM FOR SOUTHERN LIVING MAG.

First let me say that I love me some Eddie Ross. His charm, creativity, style & demeanor are a few of the things that set him apart from all of the other designers in the industry. Eddie recently transformed a master bedroom for North Carolina native Elizabeth Harris which can be seen in the upcoming issue of Southern Living. The results were nothing short of amazing considering that most of the items used in the re-design were found at a local flea market. How GREAT is that. Take a look!

Shopping at the 127 Corridor (The WORLDS longest yard sale) in union Kentucky proved to be very successful in this transformation.



THE BEFORE PICTURE
Drab - Dated - Lifeless



THE AFTER PICTURE
Vibrant - Cozy - Elegant


Stoping at Calico Corners (fabric store) Eddie selected 2 fabrics that compliment each other well giving giving the dark room a life of its own.

Jacobean Print with a Pastel blue and green Buffalo Check brings together the feminine and masculine feel.

Adding a fresh coat of paint to the room and the remaining furniture while replacing the dingy tan carpet for a vivid white shag allows this space to become a clean white canvas. 
A GOOD STARTING POINT !

By adding canopy rails and elegant fabric panels to the four-poster bed you can create a cozy room within a room.

By changing out the old armoire and TV for an elegant (painted) secretary desk, Eddie created a place for Elizabeth and her husband to unwind while catching up on one of there favorite novels or internet blogs ....like STYLECODE.....(wink wink)

The FIREPLACE

Using the fireplace as a focal point, Eddie carved out a great space for coffee and good conversation with two freshly painted chairs anchored on a choral patterned rug.  To brighten up the area antique mirror pieces were added around the fireplace.

THE DRESSER

After brightening up the dresser with a little paint, a faux bamboo mirror was hung flanked by wall brackets and accessories (foo dogs) for that well traveled feel. The canister lamps were purchased for only $10 at the yard sale and revamped to add an elegant glow. (Hello..!!..AMAZING)
