Doug Hines’ Design Portfolio From HGTV Design Star season six 2011

Douglas Hines
Age: 44
Atlanta, Ga.
Born and raised in New York City, the arts have always been a part of Doug’s life. Growing up, he studied visual arts and design and then later turned his passion for aesthetics into a career. Doug worked for several of New York’s top advertising agencies as a graphic designer before moving to Atlanta 12 years ago to open an art gallery. His talent for art consultation soon led him to designing interiors for several of Atlanta’s restaurants and nightclubs. While his favorite design style is mid-century modern, he also loves the glamour of Hollywood regency and the sleekness
of modern minimalism. Doug, who describes himself as a loyal friend, loves antiquing and yard-sale cruising in his spare time.

Antique, Yet Chic Bedroom

An Atlanta celebrity wanted a plush, yet timeless bedroom. Hines used items like vintage picture frames and an antique fan to create a classic yet timeless feel.

Old Becomes New

Hines had this antique table painted high gloss white to impart a modern look in this stylish bedroom. “Don’t be afraid to mix vintage and contemporary furnishings,” says Hines.

Retro Bar Lounge

Hines was inspired by a midcentury modern aesthetic for this soul food restaurant’s lounge.

Eclectic Restaurant Lounge

This lounge-inspired dining room features a unique mix of styles. Textured, exposed brick is juxtaposed against soft fabrics, tulle and ornate crystal chandeliers.

Speakeasy-Inspired Bar

Hines wanted this room, the bar of an Atlanta tapas restaurant, to transport patrons back in time to a 1930s speakeasy bar. Ornate chandeliers, shades of burnt sienna and retro bar stools complete the space.

Speakeasy-Inspired Lounge

Hines found a massive vintage sofa to tie together this communal lounge area.
