A.Clore Interiors was so excited to be asked to participate in the “Folk Art Meets Design” exhibit at Jeanine Taylor Folk Art. Each designer was given the opportunity to select an original Folk Art piece to design a room setting. The overall space uses key design elements like color, scale, and proportion to create a well functioning space. With the mix of quirkiness, eclectic pieces, and neutral hues, our team decided to showcase an “Updated Traditional” scheme.
Guinea Fowl Artwork
The showcase features the work of John “Cornbread” Anderson. He is widely known for his representation of animals, especially guinea fowl. This particular painting was fittingly picked with its vibrant, energetic, and bold palette to represent our firm. This art is repeated for emphasis throughout the entire design, from the napkins to accent pillows on chair.
When looking at the plate settings, you can immediately see the proportionality of it all. Each plate seamlessly transitions to the next, for a layered effect. Take special notice in the feathered placemats, matching the emphasized art of Cornbread. The gold utensils are a traditional color, but updated with unique handles and a bubbled glass effect in the cups. The intertwined nest napkin holders with delicate bird eggs in them give a special touch of focus to the painting’s background.
From wood to ceramic to feathers to burlap, you’ll find many materials used in the vignette. They all work together to tie in traditional touches with modern finishes. The decor was locally sourced and even custom made to make this dining set truly one of a kind. The quirkiness of the pea pod base floor lamps.
There are large host and hostess chairs on each side of the table with pillows of the painting printed on them. Their large presence add depth to the design and balance out all the smaller pieces on the table. They are paired with simpler, wooden chairs that match the dining table to add some unity and have a solid base to the design.
