When it comes to decorating, Elte general manager Jamie Metrick prefers the “less is more” approach. See how H&H‘s Joel Bray and designer Kelly Buffey transformed his ’60s-era home into a cool and modern space with a soft palette and standout rugs.

Kelly created a clean and bright space that was the perfect jumping off point for the thoughtful, eclectic decor that Joel added with help from Jamie’s mom, Renee Metrick. First, Joel defined areas within the open-concept floor plan with statement furniture, like a tall bookshelf in the den and a large black and white photo above the sofa in the living room. The bedroom is warm and layered with natural textiles and moody shades, featuring grasscloth wallpaper that lends a cozy, intimate feel. Jamie’s favorite rugs act as art throughout the home.
