STUFF WE LOVE
KRYSTAL KELLERMANN Lead Interior Designer at Martha O’Hara Interiors FLORAL FABRIC
An intricate tray, like this marble collection from Made Goods, is one of the most versatile and functional accessories out there. I love this particular find for its wood-grain pattern. The marble finish looks striking on a cocktail table, ottoman, console or kitchen island. It’s the perfect filler piece that can protect your furniture and provide a landing place for decorative items and room accessories.
The proper frame on a piece of art makes a huge impact. I equate its importance to the shoes or jewelry of an outfit—a good frame can dramatically enhance what’s already there. High gloss frames like this one from Art Resources Gallery have an ornateness that’s eye-catching, and these particular frames come in a variety of colors to effortlessly enhance any room.
VINTAGE TURKISH RUG
These colorful beauties not only look amazing, but they wear like iron. A Turkish rug is the most sought after quality area rug right now for its upcycled and eco-friendly design. Fay + Belle Turkish over-dye rugs are one-ofa-kind treasures that are made from vintage rugs that have been salvaged, bleached and then over-dyed in vibrant colorways. No two rugs are ever the same. This is the statement piece in your home that will serve many purposes, including a great story telling opportunity with your guests.
I love adding a little bit of the unexpected to a room, and this chair does just that. Its sculptural physique keeps things interesting and often pushes the limits of my clients’ comfort zones just enough. An accent chair is a great opportunity to take some risk. I am especially drawn to the metal frame and openness beneath the seat and around the arms. The end result is a furnishing that also serves as a three-dimensional art piece.

This gorgeous large-scale print shows off a dense display of colorful florals. A vibrant palette like this can become the welcoming element that freshens and brightens a room. I would use this print on anything from pillows to draperies, and pair it with complementary geometric patterns. An organic floral gives the eye a resting spot without even realizing it.
