I obviously scroll through a ton of rooms on my Instagram feed each day, and I love when I come across a home where you can tell the person living there truly loves to decorate, carefully collects pieces over time and displays meaningful objects and photographs. Cameron Jones has one of those homes. She has a young family but I appreciate her colorful and fresh take on tradition, blending old with new. I’m sharing a few spaces from her home, including her collected and layered vignettes, with some details to notice. All images were photographed by Anna Routh Barzin.
- Textured paper on the back of the bookcases is a beautiful way to customize.
- I love that the base is a durable, gray sofa but she layered with blue and white pillows, a patterned rug and animal print on the ottoman.
- Elevate a simple lamp with a pleated, patterned shade.
- Piano placement in the bay window.
- Instead of a window treatment, she used art around the one behind the sofa. Notice the placement of the two pieces to the right. It doesn’t always have to be stacked or perfectly aligned.
- Still working on building a book collection? She created small vignettes on her shelves.
- Milk glass is fairly easy to thrift these days and the small scale pieces are a great way to accessorize under a TV above the mantel.
- Love the entire vignette with the hutch, formal chairs and painted portraits. An animal print pillow instantly adds a touch of modern.
- I’m setting a intention to frame more favorite photos around our house.
- Black walls create a dramatic backdrop. She brought in color with a pretty table cloth. A perfect option if you like to change up your color scheme and tablescapes.
- Love the black cabinet against the black wall for storing extra glasses. And this mirror is always a classic.
- Instead of a traditional buffet or bar cart, she used a small antique chest (more drawer storage!) and a tray on top.
- Notice how another animal print on the chairs works as a neutral against the other pattern on the table.
- Easy and fresh: all-white bedding and one large, colorful lumbar pillow.
- Yes, a bed can be placed in front of a window. ;)
- Deep blue calming walls with crisp white curtains. (Notice her doorways are painted blue, too, for a seamless look.)
- Matching, painted mirrors for height on each side of the bed.
- I also like the way she uses small chairs. This is a fun way to add another pattern.
- Her nursery is a design lesson in using pieces that will grow with them. The rattan armoire is great storage that could be used in any room.
- I love the combination of wallpaper (small print) with a bold rug (large pattern).
- A tried and true trick for customizing window treatments: add a patterned trim.
- Lastly–and this has nothing to do with design–but I will forever have a soft spot in my heart for a baby who sucks their fingers.
