Property Brothers


We were excited to partner with HGTV’s Property Brothers: Buying & Selling on an extensive renovation project just outside of Nashville. We reconfigured the main living spaces to be much more open, inviting, and bright, and the master bath’s new floor plan increased space and functionality. We selected cabinetry, fixtures, finishes, and lighting to update the dark, dated home and ready it for the selling process. Staging the home with new furnishings and accessories rounded out the complete transformation!

If you’re interested in viewing the program, it may be available on demand through your cable provider – season 7, episode 2: “Letting Go Is Hard to Do”.

Dickson Cabin


This beautiful Dickson cabin, a weekend home for one of our favorite Nashville clients, offered an exciting opportunity to play with diverse textiles, antique pieces, and subtle pops of color. The woven wall hangings, unique vintage rugs, and blend of various materials convey an inviting rustic, bohemian vibe, perfect for tranquil getaways.

Oak Hill Cottage


This new construction home is all about bold contrasts! The black and white base sets an easy stage for an updated Hollywood Regency style. Special details, like the brass toe kick in the kitchen and storage niches in the master bathroom, add character to the home. The wide black and white striped tile in the master bath is modern yet neutral and classic.

Forest Hills Ranch

This Forest Hills ranch project included a complete kitchen renovation, and the master suite was reconfigured to create a large walk-in closet and a more open bathroom layout.

In the kitchen, we removed a large bricked opening around the cooktop, which opened up and lightened the space. Other updates included new hardwood flooring, lighting, and custom cabinetry. In the adjoining breakfast area, we designed applied paneling for the wall, along with an art ledge, and a dramatic chandelier brings a modern touch to the clean-lined, traditional space. Brass light fixtures add warm metal details, balancing the polished chrome hardware and faucet.

In the master bath, we selected traditional materials with light and bright finishes, always keeping an eye to clean lines. Black cabinetry adds a rich base for the other materials, and the expanse of glass in the marble shower keeps a spacious feeling in the room.
