Beautiful Interior Design

With Glamorous Furnishings

We love how this beautiful dining table from the Century Furniture Omni Collection delivers such elegance in the dining area of the home.  Notice the incredible malachite top, the lucite legs and the gold leaf base; it all says glamour.  We love to show a neutral paint color when showcasing such a special item and here the grey walls are perfect showcase with all of the gold leaf accents on the chandelier and art work.  Even the art work has an incredible Asian pattern helping to create this serene space.  The background is making it’s on statement with the mirrored glass drawer cabinets reflecting all of the graceful lines of the dining table.

If you would like to have symmetry and balance in your home with beautiful pieces as seen here then we are just a click away.

When designing the guest retreat bath and dressing area, Kirkland was inspired by the Roaring Twenties, “when everything was all about glamour,” he says. Imagining Hollywood starlets of a bygone era needing an escape to pamper and primp, Kirkland crafted a dressing area where the closet would be today. The dramatic space is punctuated with powerful pops of vibrant orchid and whimsical touches like the “Flower Head” series of photographic prints by Gibson-Spizman.

Bryan Kirkland creates classic interiors with twist

By Linda Jerkins

For the Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Bryan Kirkland has never had any formal training in interior design, but the Atlanta native and owner of BAK Designs has a natural talent for using color and pattern to create classic interiors with a twist.

Background: Grew up in south Atlanta and bought my first house in Virginia Highland in 1979. It cost $25,000. I thought I had hit the big time when I had a pool installed two years later. In 1985, I moved to Washington, D.C., and worked in interior design with Bloomingdales. In 1991, I moved to Miami, but headed back to Atlanta 10 years later.

How I got started: I have always been creative. I loved rearranging my room as a child and probably drove my mother up a wall with “I wants.” I started working in furniture sales. My second job was with Rich’s at Lenox Square. I was in visual merchandising and had lots of freedom to be creative. I realized I had a flair for the unexpected. And that continues today.
