I’ve been Instagramming details of construction of the O’More Designer Show House for a few months, so it’s a pleasure to be able to share some of the decorative elements now. It’s been very tempting to show images of entire rooms, but that’s a job for presenting sponsor Traditional Home.
Photographer Werner Straube, his assistant Dustin and TH Senior Architectural Editor Amy Elbert spent three days photographing the rooms and talking with the designers. Word has it that the article will be featured in the June/July issue of the magazine, which should be on newsstands in a month. That is a pretty speedy turnaround in the publishing world!
Until then, here are a few of the details from the first floor of the O’More Designer Show House. My photography skills are a sorry alternative to Werner’s artistic genius, but I think you’ll get an idea of what’s in store.
The exterior of the house is clad in stone, cedar shakes and concrete siding:
Lush teal velvet upholstered walls greet you in the Entry Hall, designed by R. Higgins Interiors:
Textural paper covers the walls of the Dining Room, designed by Crysta Parish of Dana Goodman Interiors:
Crysta also styled the Dining Room table to perfection:
The pickled walnut countertop on the island is just one of many highlights in the Vicki Edward’s designed kitchen:
The laundry room is a study in form, function and luxury, designed by Jennifer Markanich of Timeless Interiors:
Globetrotting L. Jonathan Savage, of Savage Interior Designs, brought a European sensibility to the Breakfast Room:
Mark Simmons and Deb Tallent, of Mark Simmons Interiors, layered color, pattern and texture to create an exceptional Living Room:
Jennifer Jones’ still life in the hallway mimics the incredible watercolor by artist Karen Horn:
Undoubtably the most luxurious space in the home–and it does feel like a home–the Master Bedroom Entry,
by Kathleen Evers of K. Evers Interiors, features beautifully framed intaglios:
Kathleen created a relaxing seating area with an upscale feel:
The bed is a study in silk and steel:
And the Master Bath Kathleen designed left me speechless:
I love seeing happy people hanging around the exterior spaces of the home:
When I’m onsite, it is impossible to refrain from taking a few moments to enjoy the outdoor areas,
so beautifully designed by Louise and Linda, of Kitchell + Brown:
It has a spa-like feel I can’t resist:
These are just a few of the details of the first floor of the O’More Designer Show House, presented by Traditional Home. It closes on April 21, so you still have a few days left to see it for yourself.
I highly recommend touring the house, then walking the two blocks to downtown Franklin for lunch. It’s a beautifully designed way to spend a Spring day!
Be sure to leave your questions or thoughts in the comments. I’m happy to share sources with you.
