Go Bold with Neon Brights



With the spring fashion bursting with vivid colors, many people are beginning to incorporate the fun style into their homes. From painting the walls to using furniture pieces and accessories, pops of pinks, greens, and yellows are being brought into more interiors. Here are some images of a variety of rooms and items that give off a fun and lively appeal.

When these bright accents are used against white finishes, they really attract your eye and give emphasis in the room.

From the Ground Up: Exterior and First Floor

We worked side by side with Brad Graham of Graham Construction throughout the duration of the building process making sure every detail was well thought out and perfectly aligned with the home owners wishes. In a matter of only about 2 weeks from the photos you saw in the last post, we already have a full second story and the guys have begun to “wrap” all exterior walls. It’s really starting to take shape at this point!




I thought I would also share a drawing of the front elevation to give you an idea of what we are moving towards and show you the first floor plans so you can orient yourself in some of the images…You really have to have a good imagination when looking at a bunch of studs in a photograph.

Front Elevation

At this point in the project, we have decided for exterior materials to be brick in all areas shown with a mortar wash over top, a stone used in designated areas and a Dryit on the second floor. Now what color…

1st Floor Plan

On the first floor you have already seen the Den and Her Master Closet, so here are a few more areas.

 1st Floor Kitchen and Dining

Here we are standing in the Kitchen looking into the Dining Room.  On the left you can see the existing Recreation Room.  Wait until you start seeing this kitchen take shape!  It is a beauty.  

1st Floor Salon. 

Windows from floor to ceiling are perfect when you have a calm, tree lined lot like this.

I’ll leave you with the exterior progress on the rear and I’ll see you next time for the 2nd floor!

How to Get the Most Out of Your Kitchen Space

Using your kitchen space wisely, no matter the size of your kitchen, will help you ensure that things don’t become cluttered and the aesthetic value of your home isn’t compromised. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to use the space you have in your kitchen to its full advantage, particularly if you have a lot of kitchen supplies and appliances. Here are a few things you can do to make the most of your kitchen space and avoid clutter:

Keep Your Cabinets Organized

Kitchen cabinets can easily become disorganized when you try to store too much in them. It’s generally a good idea to install some hanging racks for your pans and some shelves on your kitchen walls for miscellaneous kitchen items like teapots that can serve both decorative and functional purposes.

Reconsider Your Kitchen Table

A long, large kitchen table comes in handy for dinner parties and family gatherings. However, you probably don’t usually need a large kitchen table. The bigger your kitchen table is, the less space you have in your kitchen for everything else, and the more cramped your kitchen can feel. Consider investing in a small table for your kitchen that will accommodate you and your immediate family sufficiently.

Remember That Less is More

There’s no need to hold onto those faded, torn oven mitts or that toaster oven that barely works anymore. Every few months, go through the things in your kitchen and try to get rid of some of what you aren’t using anymore. This will help you keep things de-cluttered and organized. Plus, it will clear up some space for any new kitchen items or appliances you purchase.

Keep Decorations Simple, Attractive, and Sparse

Over-decorating your kitchen can make it appear cluttered and busy. So, hang a few attractive plates and other decorations on the walls, but keep it simple. Your kitchen will appear more spacious with fewer decorations.






So, organize, downsize, and simplify to make the most of the space in your kitchen!

From the Ground Up!

I am excited to share one of our construction projects with you.  This “from the ground up” home build was orchestrated by Beckwith Interiors and headed up by Senior Interior Designer, Samantha Culbreath.  The home was a ranch style in the Belle Meade/Forest Hills area of Nashville Tennessee.  The homeowners were wanting to update the home, increase their living space and build their “dream home”.  We were honored to help this family achieve their goals. 

After meeting with the clients we quickly learned about their style and what they were wanting in their new home.  Our team got to work and I’m happy to share pictures of the beginning of the process.  Samantha Culbreath will be writing about this project over the coming weeks and sharing images of how everything came together!

Here you can see the original part of the ranch home with the red brick and grey roof.  The NO, on the roof, means dont tear down!!!

This is the master bedroom closet.  More to come on this amazing transformation!!!!

Upstairs.  The original house did not have a second story.  This added space gave the homeowners much more flexibility.

This room is the “Man Cave”  a special retreat just for him. 

We hope you enjoy this tour over the coming weeks!  The final results are stunning!!
