Sallie’s Favorites

Music to Fuel Creativity

You can catch me often listening to my favorite Pandora stations: The Cranberries Radio, Chris Stapleton Radio and The Rolling Stones Radio.

Source of Inspiration

I adore inspiration from Paris and England. I also love antique shopping and finding something from the past that looks more modern — I love to give that piece a new light and life in my designs!

My Rowe Design

The goal for this modern yet romantic space was to blend luxurious style with some of Sallie’s current favorite materials, such as velvet, gold accents, and graphic wallpaper. With a playful and refined feminine spirit in mind, Sallie focused on a palette including delicate pinks and bold black, with gold highlights and patterned details that create a soft yet high-contrast aesthetic. Punchy, graphic wallpaper delivers a little edge, infusing the space with abstract patterns inspired by natural textures such as marble and shagreen. Overall, says Sallie of her strikingly stylish space, “the look is large, but the design is livable luxury.”

I see a modern bosslady using this space to lounge, work, and enjoy cocktails.

My Rowe Design space is inspired by the look and things that I personally love and have sourced.

Inspired by the idea of a powerful modern woman who loves to entertain, Sallie turned to some of her own best-loved pieces to make the space shine. “I wanted to bring the room to life with favorite pieces that I have used for myself or projects,” the designer says, “to create a cohesive space in a new light and vision.” Curvaceous elements play a large role, from the gentle arc of a pair of Neoma Benches to the soft contours of the Cleo Ottomans and Ophelia Chairs. The 96” Grady Sofa is a large-scale knockout dressed in classic black velvet, offering plenty of seating room for guests to gather at cocktail hour. Our Ellice Lounger, a favorite pick of the designer’s, makes a lovely counterpoint to the sofa in pale blush velvet. The result is a welcoming space with fashion-forward charm.
