This next home tour may just be my favorite one to date. Literally if the homeowner’s, Bo and Casey Hawthorne, told me I could buy there house and everything in it, I would be one happy girl! The style and grace of this lovely home is the perfect mix of color, pattern and class. Casey Hawthorne of Casey Hawthorne Design, has recently started her interior design career consulting with other friends and colleagues about their design visions. After touring her home, I can see how her design talents should be shared with the world.
The living room which connects to a smaller den and breakfast nook flow together seamlessly with coral and turquoise fabric choices, gold accents and animal-hides layered on neutral woven rugs.
At the front of the room you will find our custom settee with a large cut velvet diagonal herringbone pattern. This little bench was one of our most loved photos on Instagram in the past 6 months.
To the right of the settee and just around from the front door is the beloved artwork from their son Jackson. Casey mentioned it was her favorite artwork in her home, I can see Jackson has inherited his mother’s creative talents.
At the far end of the living room hides a comfortable office, with my favorite custom piece in U-Fab’s existence, this amazing tufted mitered ottoman.
When I think about why people choose custom furniture, this piece always comes to mind. The fabric that is really fun stripe, was used in a mitered technique that brings it together in star shape, giving symmetry and visual interest.
To the far end of the living room is the den I mentioned prior, inside are a pair of one-of-a-kind chairs that feature a rolled headrest and unusual arms. From the back you might not know how extraordinary they are.
From the front you can see just how special they are. Casey chose to accentuate the arms with a contrast fabric that is also used on the piping. These are certainly another killer portfolio piece from the U-Fab workroom.
The chinoiserie motif fabric is found in the living room office and den and is especially effective at tying the spaces together resulting in a consistent flow throughout.
The Kitchen and Breakfast room have a rustic flair with washed wood cabinets and chunky farmhouse table and bench, red barstools line the island.
The dining room is a luxurious space with gold used in the best of ways. The modern wingbacks flanking the table add weight and stability and a touch of whimsy.
The bedding in the master bedroom was custom designed by Casey and I love the fabric and banding combination she chose, the rugged creamy polkadots framed with a herringbone band that pulls accents of the colors from their bolster pillow; the scale, colors and use of pattern are flawless.
Upstairs a bold guest room with all the finest textile touches. I especially love how the bed skirt matches the extra wide banding she created on the window treatments.
Casey masterfully used her talents in her children’s spaces as well. The navy and bold kelly green in her eldest son Jackson’s room is youthful yet mature. While her younger son, Eli, dawns a colorful polka dotted bed skirt and charming black dragon fly window treatments. But I’ll admit my favorite touch has nothing to do with fabric, the hooked shelves completely line her younger son’s room are brilliant, providing a beautiful display shelf and functional hooks to keep items off the ground.
More custom bedding in a different color way of the same rugged polk dot is found in another bedroom. A simple monogrammed pillow completes the ensemble.
The downstairs rec-room serves as a playroom for the kids, rustic wood elements surrounding a beautiful fireplace and the prized deer that Bo mounted give this space a lodge type feeling, which is perfect since Casey mentions their private back yard hill is the neighborhood spot to be on a snow day.
To the Hawthorne family, thank you so much for welcoming us into your incredible home, we are in awe of it’s beauty!
