Furlow Gatewood’s elevated casual

ECS_Furlow Gatewood

In this room in one of antique dealer Furlow Gatewood’s homes in Americus, Georgia, we see his use of soft grays and whites, slipcovered furniture, and a savvy mixture of period pieces with several different wood finishes. Painted clapboard walls bring it down, while architectural details (in the large mirror and the doorway) and overall symmetry elevate the look. I love the simple fern on a pedestal and the beautiful bare windows. I will feature him often in upcoming posts, and to read and see more check out Julia Reed’s book One Man’s Folly: The Exceptional Houses of Furlow Gatewood.
