For a little extra inspiration, the Domino editors’ favorite Instagrammers takeover our feed each weekend. It’s safe to say tips and covetable images are aplenty. Here’s what you need to know about the most recent feature!
One thing Dallas-based interior creative and ultimate thrifter Judy Aldridge is sure of is her unabashed love of maximalism, and her home certainly shows it. Initially inspired by the indigo, underwater dreamscape city of Atlantis, the stylish Texan started her brand, Atlantis Home, as a space for her loyal followers to shop beautiful, colorful hand-woven textiles from Guatemala and Mexico. The expertly-sourced products are sure to add a bit of vibrant flair to any bohemian home and truly show off her love of bold style. As the queen of vintage and consignment store finds, Aldridge is also a pro at taking something old and making it feel both new and personal. Offering a lesson in pattern-filled, bold, maximal and thrifty style, Aldridge took over our Instagram feed this past weekend to show us around her very own home. Get ready to feel inspired.
“Hi! It’s Judy Aldridge from @atlantishome, and I’m taking over Domino’s feed today. Since it’s a holiday weekend, let’s get started with a cocktail! This used to be a lackluster '90s built-in bar. We demoed the space, and added a MCM teak bar and a pair of vintage brass etageres, and presto!! It’s now our favorite spot to hang out with friends.” Photo by @carlaypage, design by @atlantishome #SOdomino
Goodbye, bar cart, hello full-blown, ultra-stylish bar. In perhaps one of the coolest DIY bar moments we’ve seen, Aldridge repurposed a super chic pair of brass bookcases to display of all the accoutrements of her in-home beverage station. Add a fresh plant and some super cool steel or leather bar stools and you’ve got the ultimate place for entertaining and doling out delicious drinks.
“My biography would be titled, 'Confessions of a Maximalist'. ? There is a lot going on in this room! I love antiquing, flea markets, estate sales, and thrift shops. The thrill of the hunt keeps my adrenaline charged. I’m always ready to hit the open road in search of treasures.” Photo by @carlaypage, design by @atlantishome #SOdomino
Next to the bar sits a stunning, traditional bookcase, along with tons of Aldridge’s vintage finds that round out the personality-filled living space. We love the intersection of art, pattern, and texture that makes this space feel especially unique and one-of-a-kind.
"My favorite room in my home is my bedroom. I found the twin headboards in an antique shop and put them together to fit my king size bed frame. The headboards are from Mexico, and they’re made of paper mache. I believe they’re from the '70s. Definitely one of my all-time favorite finds!! Thanks for following along!"

This bedroom accent wall is proof that you should really never shy away from a dark, bold paint color. It sits behind a truly incredible headboard, perfectly showing off the textiles in the room along with the artwork on the wall.
