If you’ve been reading for awhile, you’ve probably seen me mention James T. Farmer more than once. He is easily one of my favorite designers. His unapologetically Southern designs are rooted in tradition, yet still feel fresh.
James’ designs read traditional, but relaxed, and strike a healthy balance between masculine and feminine.
Bird motifs frequently appear in his work — perhaps as a nod to his Southern roots. He also always chooses the most sunning table lamps—check out the green one in the bedroom below.
Grasscloth wallpapers and plaid fabrics are also frequently seen in his work. Awhile back, I read an interview he did where he joked that plaid is his favorite color.
I love his use of symmetry. It helps create balance and a sense of order. The room below is a great example.
His vignettes are always stunning—particularly the bookshelves he curates.
He is also a genius at styling console tables and sideboards.
He is so talented—he doesn’t just design living rooms, bedrooms, etc. Nope. He also does kitchen and bathrooms.
Alright. Last one, and I saved my favorite for the occasion. I adore this living room— from the blues and greens to the addition of the more modern lucite end tables.
