Exotic Elegance at The 2019 Southeastern Designer Showhouse

I am so excited the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles article came out featuring my recent showhouse room among so many other amazing rooms. 

Exotic Elegance |  Upstairs Bedroom  |  Holly Hollingsworth Phillips

Inspired by a Moroccan sunset, decorator Holly Hollingsworth Phillips of The English Room designed this bedroom around a Thibaut wallpaper that’s reminiscent of Morocco’s iconic horizon. As a seasoned traveler herself, Phillips incorporated found objects discovered across the world into the globetrotting space, including ethically sourced zebra ottomans from Africa and bone inlay pieces from India. “I wanted to use items that reflect my personal love of travel,” she shares. “I love unusual items that are a bit exotic and worldly.” The adjoining bathroom’s Thibaut palm wallpaper reminded Phillips of the rooftop of El Fenn luxury hotel in Marrakech—the terracotta exterior, palm trees and scenic sunset. “Both rooms are to reflect the life of the global nomad,” she shares. “But this stop is home.” —Jeanne Lyons Davis

    Your room was definitely my favorite! Those horn lamps with the feather shades, wow! I couldn’t really pick a favorite element though, it’s all fantastic.
