Known for a classic style with a dose of glam, Erika Hollinshead Ward is currently taking cues from the natural world. Here’s what’s inspiring her now.
A teak wood console from Scott Antique Markets. It’s earthy and organic and enough of a statement for our living room with two-story windows.
Summer get-togethers are my favorite because they extend outdoors. For tabletop goods, I love Waiting on Martha Home. Finds from my travels add conversation to the table, like these African napkin rings. This rustic flatware is from Bobo Intriguing Objects.
I’m always looking for a reason to use forsythia branches.
I’ve begun to collect textiles on my travels—like this Ankara fabric I found in Cape Town. Schumacher is always classically current with rich pigments and elegant designs. A favorite is “Lotus Garden” in jade.
I love the stunning combination of materials in lighting by John-Richard, which has a showroom in High Point. I used this acrylic and antique brass chandelier in a recent project.
Phillip Jeffries shows such an amazing range of natural wallcoverings. I love this blossom print in porcelain blue.
The Shepherd’s Tree Game Lodge in South Africa. It has luxurious creature comforts amid the world’s most majestic beasts. We went this spring and I brought back these handpainted African beads.
