Portman White Vignette by REstyleSOURCE

A Celebration in White & Metallic Shimmer

Introducing the Portman White Lobby vignette designed by REstyleSOURCE at this year’s 2015 International Gift & Home Furnishings Market at AmericasMart. It’s a celebration of the new Portman White paint color from Sherwin Williams, which formed the inspiration for this curated collection. This stylish space was put together by our creative director, interior designer Kristin Alber, and is full of sparkle and warmth. Portman White is such a warm, easily-adaptable white, it is the perfect “blank canvas” to start from. Click the links below to find stores near you where you’ll be able to get the look locally!

Designer Notes from Kristin

“We collected pieces from all around AmericasMart to create this mix of white with various metallics–silver, bronze, gold, and platinum. This space was designed to showcase some of our favorite exhibitors throughout the market, using a mix of acrylic, painted, metal and mirrored surfaces.”

Some of the pieces featured actually combine a white element directly against a metallic one, like the gold-dipped white books (which come in gold, bronze and silver) from E. Lawrence or the studded linen pillows from Lacefield, for a unique hard-vs.-soft feeling everywhere that linen or leather meets gold or pewter. Sculptural, transitional lamps by some of the best in the industry–Michael Aram, Regina Andrew, Emporium Home and Barbara Cosgrove–provide a warm metallic glow in the space. Soft, natural textures like angora and a natural hide rug help to add a sense of quiet restfulness here and there among all the shinier pieces, and echo the natural elements seen in the stone and crystals.

There were so many favorites in this collection, but a few stand out. A white hide rug with metallic specks from Saddlemans “grounded” the design in simple luxury, adding just a hint of sparkle, as did the dramatic-yet-monochromatic marbled chandelier from Ro Sham Beaux. Finally, the Anna French by Thibaut metallic bronze wallcovering really helped to bring the design together.
