A neutral living room with comfortable seating and a pop of modern art on @thouswellblog

When the owners of a mansion in Nashville asked the Chad James Group to bring their 1980’s style abode into the current decade, it was a matter of creating timeless interiors in the dated spaces. The group stuck to a high-contrast yet minimal palette, letting the architecture tell the story and using subtle, but impactful gestures to soften the spaces. They also worked with the owners to highlight an impressive art collection, using these pieces to create colorful focal points in the rooms. My favorite part may be the foyer – I can imagine how such an impressive space would have felt excessive (the home actually appeared in the TV show ‘Nashville’), but the simplicity and grace in which the design group reinvented the expansive space is delightful!

Aren’t the ceiling heights in this bedroom incredible? And the use of white makes the room feel ethereal.

Although I’m not a fan of the modern mansion, the way in which this home was redesigned makes a fantastic case for the power of transformative design…
