Design Partner Feature: Paperwhites Interiors

Paperwhites Interiors of Brentwood, TN specializes in all things southern, traditional, classic, unique and just plain pretty! 

Launched in 2016 by two friends, Juli O'Neal and Mary Elizabeth Wiggins, Paperwhites strives to create spaces that reflect the heart of each client and to bring joy and beauty into each home they touch. 

Below are photos of some of their recent projects that I wanted to share with you for design inspiration.

Chic & Airy Guest Bedroom

Paperwhites Interiors Guest BedroomBecause the team at Paperwhites Interiors were limited on space for this guest bedroom's side tables and lighting, they needed lights that were compact but could still make a statement...

So Juli and Mary Elizabeth ended up selecting the Griffith Swing Arm Sconces in gilded iron by Suzanne Kasler. 

Doing so allowed them to elevate the lighting, frame the beautiful custom headboard and free up space for the wall-mounted side tables.

The women refer to the sconces as "the jewelry that makes the space shine" and I couldn't agree more!

Classic & Relaxing Master Bedroom

Paperwhites Interiors Master BedroomThe client for this project wanted a peaceful master bedroom decorated using calming, neutral colors.

When Juli and Mary Elizabeth discovered the Gourd Form Table Lamps in tea stain porcelain by E.F. Chapman, they knew that they had found the perfect lighting for the bedroom.

They particularly love the creamy tone of the lamps, and know that the light's classic shape will never go out of style. 

Elegant & Colorful Dining Room

Paperwhites Interiors Dining RoomWhen given the task of designing this dining room, the Paperwhites team knew they needed a lighting piece that would pair nicely with the space's decorative antiques. 

And the Gramercy Chandelier in gilded iron by E.F. Chapman does just that, perfectly. 

It, along with the bamboo grasscloth wallpaper, gives the traditionally-furnished room a "wow" factor that absolutely takes this dining area's beauty to the next level.

Open & Inviting Breakfast Nook

Paperwhites Interiors Breakfast NookThe Brighton Pagoda Lantern in gilded iron by E.F. Chapman was chosen by Mary Elizabeth and Juli for this breakfast room because they wanted to include an open, traditional lantern that would give a nod to the chinoiserie style they repeated in the room with their fabric choices.

I, personally, can't think of another piece that would evoke Chinese motifs as well as the Brighton Pagoda does!
