Ron Hopper’s condo, tucked behind Baxter Avenue in the Original Highlands, is “a happy space. I’ve always had a good eye for color,” he said. 

Drawing from mid-century modern and art deco styles, Ron has combined colors – like a fire engine red seen throughout the house – to create a fun, funky spot for both relaxing and entertaining. 

But he’s done it with attention to detail – such as choosing the right size furniture for his 996 square foot hideaway – and has finished several renovations along the way. He’s also added thrifty finds from around Kentuckiana each with a story of the hunt.

A painting titled “Windswept” by Linzi Lynn – depicting a woman with wavy, rainbow hair – served as Ron’s inspiration for decorating his home. Its fiery orange and red tones can be found in a tufted leather chair – opposite the painting hanging above his mantle – and in the rainbow rug that covers the living room. Its earthy colors are seen in a green tufted ottoman and couch topped with rainbow polka dot and sequin pillows.

Curved yellow and red lounge chairs and lime green, red and yellow bar stools in the kitchen accentuate the mid-century modern look. Art deco vibes come into play in paintings with stark shapes above the living room’s couch and in a Gatsby-like flapper statue on the mantle.
