Master Bedroom

Interior designer Mary Evelyn McKee’s deft hand with pattern, texture, and color is showcased in a restful retreat at the FLOWER showhouse at Brierfield Farm

Drawing on the natural setting, Mary Evelyn McKee, interior designer of the 2021 Flower showhouse, put together a restful master bedroom punctuated with lively details. The arched-back wicker bed with stylized open spaces was inspired by garden chairs. On the curtains and bedspread, a naturalistic print evokes a Japanese pond with its lotus flowers, fanciful birds, and tangles of green vines. Atop a three-drawer raffia-wrapped chest in a dark teal, a pitcher holds Cahaba lilies crafted in paper, a tribute to the treasured flowers native to the nearby Cahaba River.
