As he introduced textural thrills and the odd side table, Tippin always took care to tip his hat to Brad and Kristin's original goal of giving their house a feeling of history. So, formal potted lantana topiaries flank a bar, a streamlined yet undeniably classic bowl brims with coral on the sideboard, and an embroidered velvet ("but funky—not too serious") bolster is propped on one of the settees.
Tippin used pieces of both real and fake white coral to bring nature into the Glassmans' house. Here the coral is displayed in a serving bowl from Willliams-Sonoma Home and flanked by clear-glass candlesticks from Anthropologie.
