Textiles and Texture Define This Arty Carroll Gardens Townhome

The decor of Elma Blint’s Carroll Gardens townhouse is a bit like the jewelry she designs: modern, textured and unique. Recently featured on Design Sponge, the three-bedroom duplex combines high-design furniture pieces with vibrant textiles to create a character-filled, original vibe.

Patterned pillows, blankets and rugs add plenty of color and visual interest without creating clutter. Covering the couch cushions with a throw blanket shields them from accidental spills and grime while giving the modern piece a bit of bohemian flair.

The modern simplicity of the clear acrylic coffee table contrasts with the room’s red-splashed textiles from superfussy and Martine’s Dream. The gold pouf is from Collyer’s Mansion.

The home’s textile-laden style continues in the master bedroom where patterned fabrics make the bed a centerpiece in front of slate blue walls.

The rope-strung wall hanging above the bed evokes a kind of modern-day macramé. The large vanity mirror helps create the impression of a more expansive space.
