The redesign of the "big room," as it is fondly referred to around the Wednesday Journal office, is nearly complete. With painting and construction renovations finished, furniture and accent pieces picked by interior designer and Divine Consign owner Kellie Scott are streaming in.
As Scott decided where certain furniture items should be placed Monday afternoon, the number of accent pieces around the room caught my eye. A large, metal, intricately twisted, horizontal wall sculpture is one of the more striking pieces in the room.
A Victorian-styled chaise, reupholstered in a red and beige flower design by Scott's expert team, sits on the floor beneath the wall sculpture. Throughout the room there is a consistent juxtaposition of modern and organic styles.
Scott said Monday that Mad Men (very 60s and very mod) was a part of her design inspiration but she softened the overall look with circular shapes and flower patterns.
The wooden accent tables (pictured in the slide show above) are a perfect example of blending the angular, structured aesthetic of the mod look with natural material, a look found in organic designs.
Scott added a unique addition to one wall by hanging a few awards won by the weekly papers in a large gold frame.
