How lucky am I? Last week I attended a sneak peek Garden Party and Preview tour of the Nashville Symphony Show House. Thank you Forest Home Media.
Wow, just wow! I want one just like it. It was beautiful and comfortable. Stunning, yet not ostentatious. Perfect comes to mind. Perfection compliments of Castle Homes, Wade Weissman Architecture, and a slew of other amazingly talented locals.
The heart of the home, always the kitchen. Just look at this island/table and imagine all the fun in store for this space.
My friend and fellow Expert Psychological Stager™, Amy Bratcher, checks out the fridge. Even it was amazing (floor to ceiling, built-in with a twin freezer and wine cooler).
Love this painted white brick kitchen fireplace and mantle and art and floral arrangements and….
Seriously, I will never curse laundry again– if I can do it here. Isn’t the table and washtub fabulous? Not to mention the desk area where I could Tweet while waiting for the buzzer to sound.
Found the perfect home for my wellies.
I called this a ‘man on a mission’ and thought it fitting for the masculine feel of the bonus room~man cave bathroom. Love the exposed chain hanger, borrowing that idea.
Office area in bonus room, just love the photography by Andy Detwiler.
This has to be the sweetest pair of chairs, so versatile.
Oh, if only my bookcase could look so …. perfect!
A few statement pieces in the master bedroom. An angel watching over you and what my daughter affectionately called a ‘wubble-bubbles’ light (if you are a mom, you just might know what this is). But I call it fabulous, by Julie Couch Interiors.
And this was so out of the box and gorgeous, hanging the mirrors in front of the windows in the master bath.
More of the master bath. Time to head upstairs…
We pause on this gorgeous upholstered ‘sort of’ sofa, what do you call this piece?
And this is where my friend and fellow EPS™ stager, Karen Hattan, of Home by Hattan, met her ‘Pillow Pet.’ Awesome feather pillow from The Iron Gate. And design by Rozanne Jackson.
Light as a feather!! (In the upstairs office area)
Upstairs bedroom — love the use of these unique tables as nightstands.
What a fabulous find — this weathered mirror propped against the wall is a perfect touch.
A more masculine upstairs bedroom. Love the bedding, love the lamp trimmed in gold.
More awesomeness, same bedroom. How about the vintage display case? Fuzzy ottoman, owl feathers?
Perhaps my favorite in the whole house, rugged nails on a tiny chair side table. Reminds me of what’s truly important. John 3:16.
Upstairs bathroom with hexagon tiles and window seating.
Back downstairs now. Dining area with table made from reclaimed wood from Nashville’s Municipal Auditorium. And look at the wall of glass doors letting in all the gorgeous natural light. Design by Mark Simmons.
Let’s head outdoors….
The ultimate in outdoor living and entertaining. The brick patio, the pebble rock, the white brick fireplace, ahhhhhh — can I stay forever?
This has to be the hottest ticket in town. You must go! The tour, which supports the Nashville Symphony runs through June 28 and tickets are available here.
