What if you and your family lived in a real life circus? (no, not as carnies) What we mean is, what if your home was originally the winter headquarters for John Robinson's Circus (back in 1840) and your address was One Circus Place?
Hey, it could happen! At least it did for the Worples' family. I will never forget this entertaining story that was in Traditional Home not too long ago.Who would have thought that this normal looking Terrace Park, Ohio home would house such interesting roots?
The family said that they have definitely embraced the circus theme because of the home's history...and it's certainly apparent in their home! Brightly colored solid fabrics as well as lively contemporary prints adorn their furniture. They have taken the circus theme and modernized it in a whole new way.
Raspberries, lime greens, aquas, and hot pinks are everywhere! Hot pink velvet chairs above are Designer Guild and the ottoman is upholstered in a Manuel Conovas striped fabric.
What a fun house to grow up in! These rooms have so much vibrancy. As you can see, the homeowners interjected small accents of circus memorabilia without clowning around too much.
The family room is equally as fun as the rest of the house! Bold and vivid, I wouldn't have any problem hanging out in here.
I love this wall color!
The landing's curtains provide that extra jolt of color in the small space.
Harlequin vases on the dining room mantle provide some circuis flare! (they were given to the homeowners by their interior designer)
I wouldn't recommend the circus theme in a normal residence; however, it definitely works here!
