Sneak Peek - House Beautiful December

I'm very excited to share a sneak peek of The Next Wave feature in the upcoming December issue of House Beautiful. It features the gorgeous Georgetown apartment of Matthews Bees, a Washington based designer and owner of Niche Interiors.  Matthew refers to his look as Southern transitional and his space, bathed in a stunning deep green,  is a fresh mix of traditional elements with a dash of modern.


Family photos are mounted in floating frames, giving them prominence while allowing the green walls to keep center stage.  Love this!
Here's are just a few of Matthew's picks from The Next Wave feature.  Favorite lamp, Mary McDonald's Ondine and favorite coffee table, John Saladino's iconic three-legged table.

Now Accessory: CB2's Numi candlesticks.

Love it, and the way he framed the art is so cool! How gutsy to do that green, but how magnificent!

Michele-
This shop is gorgeous. I love the green, and the floating art is perfect. I floated a piece of art my daughter gave me.
Happy Wednesday.

I love the photo of the floating frames over the fireplace mantle. The green, the silver frames, grey clock and (faux marble?) mantle are fabulous.
Thanks for the preview!

I love the floating vintage photos, and the fact that he brought green back in such a cool way!!!

Wow - I can't wait until my issue arrives (and what's up with it always being on newsstands first these days?). That green is just fantastic.

This is a truly beautiful shade of green. It looks elegant, rich and up lifting.
