This week’s edition of House Calls takes us to Asheville, North Carolina, where architect Ross Smith and his wife Anna Welton created a contemporary home with ’70s flair.
The couple’s ever-growing collection of houseplants—many of which Welton purchased from greenhouse sales at Warren Wilson College, where she works as a program director—thrive in the home’s sunny atrium. The greenery, in fact, helped shape the verdant interior palette. “I had to balance my desire for a contemporary house and Anna’s desire for a plant-filled bohemian space,” Smith says.
Taking inspiration from the playful home, we sourced key products—or in a few cases, similar finds—from each room so you can bring the look into your own space.
