We are huge fans of the esteemed Material Girls Blog, so when Emily Johnston Larkin of EJ Interiors contacted us to share one of her recent projects we were thrilled to say the least. When we opened the photos from the Frisco, Texas, install our jaws dropped to the floor. Larkin took some design risks in this project, and boy do they pay off.
Larkin went into this project with some specific requests from her clients, notably that they wanted to keep their walls a keep chocolate brown and their trim a taupe. As an accomplished designer she welcomed the challenge and put her thinking cap on. Larkin immediately knew that she wanted to do fun wallpaper on an accent wall, so she went to ID Collection in Dallas where she found the modern metallic damask print pictured here. As Larkin said, “the damask printed beauty pulled in the chocolate brown and one other color – the chartreuse green.”
To further highlight the playful yet sophisticated print, Larkin pulled out warm silver tones in the design and used them in drapes, accessories, and the Luxe Silver Topaz rug (pictured with a Soft Cotton Twill binding in Dark Roast). To emphasize the on-trend chartreuse, Larkin selected a plush green velvet fabric for the dining room chairs that create a look that embodies traditional elegance with modern flair.
Larkin did a fantastic job bringing her client’s vision to stray away from the traditional design that is so abundant in the Northern Dallas area, to design an inventive, modern and truly unique space. We are inspired by Larkin’s work and hope you will be too!
