This series features the people who opened their homes to us for Rebecca's new book, Living with Pattern. All of the homes in the book belong to creatives or were designed by interior designers who know how to create a space that is truly personal to the people who live there. Their generosity and unique personal style allowed Living with Pattern to be as beautiful and special as it is.
Rebecca Atwood Designs: Describe your style in three words.
Chassity Evans: Bright, functional, and evolving.
RAD: What is your fabric of choice?
CE: Love a linen.
RAD: What are three tips you have for using pattern in your home?
"If you’re confident about what you love, it will work. Pair together colors in the same color family. Feeling stumped? Head to your favorite piece of art or your Pinterest page for ideas of which colors you love together." - Chassity Evans
RAD: When it comes to pattern where do you save and where do you splurge?
CE: I collect throws - you can find great ones at low prices. I will always splurge on bedding and art.
RAD: What are your favorite shops for home decor?
CE: I love our local shops here in Charleston like Eclectic, Celadon, and GDC’s fabric department. Online, not a day goes by that I don’t check out One Kings Lane’s latest sales. And like the rest of the world, I adore Serena & Lily.
RAD: How do you like to decorate? If you live with others how does that affect the choices? Who gets final say?
CE: I like to collect things that I love over time, they usually seem to work together. Even though we have young children I don’t make designing decisions around them. We just live by the idea that nothing is too precious.
RAD: What inspired your pattern choices in your home?
CE: For our master bathroom I knew that I wanted it to be light and bright with a subtle pattern. The tile pattern is one of my most favorite details! I think it just makes things more fun! I like white walls, so adding pattern is an easy and fun way to bring color to a space.
