Creating Charming Comfort

You can tell a lot about what people enjoy and appreciate by the design and the details in their home, which is why furniture, decorative accessories, rugs and decor make such a statement. “Everything works together in a home; from the kitchen cabinets and the wall color, to the buffet lamps and framed art hanging on the walls, each piece needs to have a strategic purpose to make the home cohesive,” said Nolan Miles, Design Manager at Corner Studio by Barbara Stewart Interiors.

Miles had the opportunity to work with homeowners Brian and Ashley Miller, who built and designed their home and showcased it in the 2018 Parade of Homes. Their home was designed to mimic a farmhouse, which Miles wanted to build off of while adding more depth to the space than the standard HGTV remodel. Corner Studio incorporated some more traditional pieces like a large oil painting of a barn, to supplement the existing contemporary farmhouse design. The construction and design of the home boasts rich texture and comfortable colors, including a greystone fireplace, white shiplap ceilings and rich stained beams throughout the house, so the accent pieces and decor chosen incorporated rich colors in the rugs, custom framed artwork and leather seating.

The homes’ furnishings were inspired by the Bluegrass state and horses, which are found in the decor throughout the house. With Barbara Stewart Interiors horse statues in the kitchen and living room, as well as horse prints and KY maps framed by Barbara Stewart Interiors hanging in the entryway and on shelving, the open concept fl oor plan is brought together with these elements in each space. “When it comes to interior design, details matter,” stated Miles.

A favorite feature of both Miles and Parade visitors were the vintage vinyl rugs in the kitchen,
laundry room and hall leading into the bathroom. They are an affordable way to spice up any
fl oor, and are durable and easy to clean. “Choosing a rug can be dependent on many factors,
like the amount of furniture being put in the room, what the room will be used for, and if the
room is closed off or an open fl oor plan. It isn’t as easy as people may think, and that’s why we opened the Corner Studio - to provide expert tips to our clients and ensure they’re making the right decisions for their home,” said Miles.
