Design to make Visual

Tour a Vogue-Ahead House by Christina Lake

When Hailey and Bryan Stone acquired their 1940s Federal-design house in Nashville’s idyllic enclave of Belle Meade, it was out-of-day, out-of-touch, and determined for a refresh. Inside designer Christina Lake of Yancey Seibert Shearouse Interiors took cues from her clients’ closets to pack personality into each inch of the home’s 4,500 square-toes and convey it into the twenty-1st century.

“You can convey to a lot about a person’s decorating fashion just by peeking in their closet,” Lake says. “Hailey loves fashion and is not worried to push the envelope when it will come to mixing bold styles and bright hues. Throughout the setting up period, she actually advised us to produce rooms that she ‘would want to dress in.’ On the other hand, Bryan will notify you that he is an ‘old soul’ who leans toward traditional, personalized types.”

As the adage states, opposites do appeal to. Marrying Hailey’s passion for the avant-garde and Bryan’s penchant for custom, Lake conceived a style and design scheme that includes wallcoverings, materials, and rugs bearing floral, geometric, and summary motifs with a couple quirky ones (assume feathers and cowboy boots) thrown in for fantastic measure. Carried out in a feel-superior palette of greens, blues, pinks, purples, reds, and oranges, these textiles excite the senses as opposed to overwhelming them thanks to the interior’s fuss-no cost framework. Handsome hardwood flooring, classic white trim, and stately millwork enable swing the pendulum again to the heart although family heirlooms and antique-impressed furnishings continue to keep it grounded someplace among present and timeless.

Regardless of the variations in their person styles, Hailey and Bryan are a single-hundred per cent in sync when it comes to art and their choices communicate volumes about their model as a few.

“They are collectors in the truest feeling of the word,” Lake suggests. “Their appreciation and enthusiasm for modern art has developed and developed more than the yrs and, naturally, so have their collections. It was vital to develop the fantastic backdrop for these special, cherished parts mainly because they are what genuinely helps make the home sense like residence.”
