Project Spotlight: Property Brothers – Buying & Selling


We’re excited to finally share details on the renovation project we designed for an episode of HGTV’s Property Brothers: Buying and Selling. We had to keep the “big reveal” under wraps until the TV show aired. Originally scheduled to premiere in January, the premiere ended up airing last night! You can still catch it – set your DVR for 11pm Central tonight, September 21, or October 15 at 10am.

The homeowners were looking to sell their home in order to downsize, and we had the opportunity to create revised floor plans for the kitchen and master bathroom, and we also selected unique finishes and materials that we hoped would appeal to the Nashville market. We came in with items from local furniture providers to style the home and ready it for the big reveal with the homeowners. Working alongside local contractors and the show’s many vendors, we completely updated the family’s home and gave it a fresh new look!

The kitchen renovation was the most drastic change in the home. Taking down the wall that separated the dining room and kitchen made room for a large island and extended cabinetry. Here are a few “before” photos of that space:

And after:



Lightening up the cabinets and countertops made the space feel much more bright and inviting. This bar cart area added some fun exposed storage to the space.


Here’s a closeup of the island tile backsplash – one of our favorite accents!


With the dining room now open to the kitchen and living room, the first level of the home became much more accessible and functional.


The dining room was completely transformed by new lighting and a new paint color – small changes can make a huge difference!

And after:


We styled the living room with neutrals and pops of bright colors. A mix of vintage and new accessories juxtaposes nicely against the look of the brand new kitchen.


This gorgeous painting by local artist Jennifer Gibbs makes the room!


The master bedroom was transformed from dark and drab to bright, modern, and inviting!


And after:


Accents of green and blue pop throughout the room, giving it a sophisticated look, and vintage accents added warmth and interest.



Lastly, the master bathroom renovation allowed for a fresh look, with new faucets, fixtures, and mirrors.




The new vanity serves as a focal point for the room, and a freestanding tub allowed for a wall to be removed, gaining the small bathroom some extra space.

We were thrilled to be part of the Property Brothers team for this renovation! Check out more project photos HERE. All professional photos by Andrea Behrends.
