A beautiful and cozy room designed by Kevin Isbell in the December/January issueI'm happy to have been contacted by House Beautiful to write a post on Grass Cloth a week ago and very honored for the mention and link that will appear in the December/January issue. If you have an iPhone you'll be able to link to Belle Vivir through the HB Connect app. (correction Android phone users can download an free app called Digimarc Discover). It's amazing how dynamic and personal magazines have become.
House Beautiful was kind enough to send me the article so I can see it and new watermarked images that will appear in the December/January issue.
Kevin Isbell knew how to make this1930's center-hall colonial home current by injecting warm and intrinsic details such as geometric trims to floral curtains, gross-grain ribbon tape to a plain white sofa and visually connecting two separate rooms by custom painting grass cloth walls the same color as the ceiling. "Grass cloth has a warmth that paint does not, and darker colors are more cocoon-like" Kevin Isbell.
