inspired interiors: home of artists

What a treasure to find such inspiring work just down the street. Artists Amy and Terry Gower transformed an ordinary Cooper-Young home with its share of structural problems literally into a work of art.

Sunroom The south wall is covered entirely by rare vintage Elvis paneling from the '60s or '70s. The paneling was made in Memphis by a lumber company with the help of an artist. Amy and Terry found the paneling on the side of the road from a renovation project in Memphis. The copper and glass table was crafted by Terry.

Kitchen The kitchen ceiling is a remarkable display of contrasting materials. Terry calls the edging the Dr. Suess beam. In the background leading to the dining room, there is a custom shutter of copper piping, chandelier glass, and glazed wood circles {the close-up in seen in the header}. You will also see a small peak of the circle curtains Amy made and wrote about in her book The Story of the Circle Curtains. Sorry Amy I haven't gotten a good shot yet.

Upstairs reading room and bedroom walls Walls as canvas. I have seen other examples of "tattooing" the walls and still looking to try it on my walls at home.

Upstairs sleeping nook and handmade curtain Amy made the curtain {right photo} from tablecloth material.
Bathroom Antique furniture reused as a bathroom vanity. The wood also adds warmth and color within a white field. This idea is going in my design notebook.
***
They are getting ready to move on to their next residential adventure and possibly sell this work of art.
