Beverly’s husband, Brock Moore, happens to be a builder and contractor, so the two of them were able to custom build and design their own home in 1996. Thanks to their timeless choices, this bedroom refresh didn’t require updating flooring or even crown molding. Beverly was able to devote more time and more of the budget to choosing new paint and furniture.
This project was a family affair. One of Beverly’s favorite touches is the artwork above both nightstands. She picked up these prints of America’s Charters of Freedom on a trip to Washington, D.C. Her niece and builder at Moore To Love Homes, Morrell Flowers, custom-made the frames based on a mirror Beverly saw at Restoration Hardware. They’re the perfect fit, leaving not an inch to spare between the nightstands and crown molding.
Beverly chose a modern light fixture with traditional antique furniture and tied it together with a layered rug look. And she wasn't afraid to mix brown with black. According to her, the key to matching these two neutrals lies in your intuition. “For me, it’s my eye,” she says. “If they’ve got the same richness about them and the same undertones, they’ll work together.”
