“One of my favorite elements is the colorful painted vanity that mimics a piece of furniture in the powder room.”

~ Becky Kohout ASID

 

Challenged to design a Showcase Home space that spans all three levels of the Blessings’ home, interior designer Becky Kohout envisioned a design solution that would create a sense of continuity between every other space in the house, carrying guests from the first floor all the way to the third floor. 

Kohout also wanted to keep the powder room, the hallways, and the stairs feeling light, crisp, open, and airy, without feeling disconnected from any of the rooms off the hallway. 

Using a palette of fresh, updated colors, fun light fixtures, and other accents, as well as a number of classic design details utilized in the various B&B suites, the interior designer created a seamless series of spaces that feel historically appropriate, yet still friendly and welcoming.

What We Love

The way that Kohout’s color palette flows naturally from the first floor all the way to the third floor
