One Room Challenge: Deeply Southern Home

This summer, we had the honor to partner with Interior Design & Renovation consultant & Blogger Leslie Davis for The Better Home's & Garden: One Room Challenge. With her traditional design taste and pristine attention to detail, Leslie created a gorgeous traditional master bedroom decorated with moody colors and golden brass accents.

Hepplewhite furniture dates from about 1780-1810. It is a neoclassic style and falls within the Federal period in the United States.


Hepplewhite style often overlaps with that of British designer Thomas Sheraton, whose 1791 guidebook, like Hepplewhite's, documented popular furniture designs of the day. The slightly older Hepplewhite style tends to be more ornate, with substantial carving and curvilinear shapes in comparison to Sheraton style. Considered "city furniture," Hepplewhite was especially popular in early American states along the Eastern Seaboard, from New England to the Carolinas.



Thanks to @charlestonhardware , I found reproduction Hepplewhite pulls to make it functional again. I chose an unlacquered brass finish. I adore the current bright gold finish to work with the rest of the gold elements in the room, but it will naturally patina over time and I am here for it. #gifted for the @oneroomchallenge

I topped off the chest with a custom piece of Mist Black granite from my local granite yard, @maranathagranite While it was a small investment, I know this piece will be looking as beautiful as it does now for years to come. The ogee edge was a challenge to design for the curves of the chest, but it further elevates the custom look. ⁠

The Details are not the details, they make the design.
