Belle Meade Villa
Comfortable empty nesters looking to freshen up their home while preserving it’s traditional Italian country-side roots.
Our approach was not overly dramatic and provided this home with the perfect face lift. We re-painted common spaces, incorporated modern touches and updated lighting, art and accessories to freshen up the space. We recovered existing pieces, added new window treatments and mixed in new furnishings with old to give this home new life
We should all aspire to age so gracefully. Like they say, fashions fade but good style is eternal.
THE CLIENT & INSPIRATION
She’s a sharp grandmother who fancies bright saturated colors and maintains an orderly, well-edited home.
He is a simple man who likes to keep his boots dirty and prefers a hand-me-down.
A couple decades of marriage has left him wise enough to know when to just let her do her thing. In-prompt-u dinner party? Anytime! They love to entertain. She’ll set the table and he’ll make the cocktails and keep the conversation lively.
Our challenge was to create something upbeat and welcoming, yet timeless and elegant. Family heirlooms, fine textiles, modern artwork and traditional colors were layered on top of Italian marble, plaster walls and intricate millwork to achieve this look.
