A Pale Palette

28Jan13

Artist and stylist Thea Beasley found this building, previously owned by the Board of Education, in a suburb of Atlanta and has spent the last 20 years bringing it to the glorious loft that it is today. by using a creamy white background and neutrals Beasley created a canvas for her collections and furnishings. The rich patina on the walls was reached by the artist carefully peeling layers and layers of old paint off until reaching the original plaster and the stacks of boxes in the shelf below were covered in French newspapers and maps to give them a more exotic appearance than the ordinary cardboard boxes she started with. Beasley also collects French linens and uses them copiously throughout with touches of greys and blacks for added depth. She says upon first renting the building “The landlord thought I was crazy,” Beasley recalls. “But the old girl had charm, even if I had to struggle to find it.”     pb
