In Tupelo, Mississippi, you will find a contemporary-classic house designed by Sean Anderson Design. The interior feels urban and inviting, quite the opposite feeling to the rural location. Yet Anderson managed to make it go together.
Located in northern Mississippi, adjacent to the area of the famous Natchez Trace Parkway, a historic 715 km route that crosses three US states, you find Natchez Trace project by interior designer Sean Anderson. The Memphis-based designer's goal was to give a pristine renovated home a familiar feeling by using a rich colour palette, organic textures and a selection of elegant antiques and vintage objects. The house was built in 2004 and fully renovated in 2020. The interior could do with some modernising, according to owner Angela Cook. Yet the floor plan lends itself to a more traditional function. Sean wanted to keep that in mind. The result? A softer, relaxed aesthetic with rich textures and a calming colour palette.
The highlight is the kitchen fully covered in marble.
The French Provençal exterior of the house prompted Anderson to pursue an interior style that skillfully combines the original structure with modern modifications, such as the addition of a pantry to enhance the previously disjointed kitchen space. The interior feels grand and lofty, but at the same time welcoming and warm. He used custom elements including a kitchen hood made of raw, waxed steel. One of the highlights of the house is the 'bucket list' kitchen clad in Mont Blanc marble, a custom marble fireplace and stone walls in the bar and pantry. A kitchen like that makes you feel like a kitchen princess! Want to get enchanted by more impressive projects and inspiring architecture?
