When I came across Cassie Kelly’s colorful Nashville home tour on One Kings Lane, I knew I had to share!! Cassie is married to Charles Kelly, the lead singer of country-music band Lady Antebellum (one of my favs!). In addition to being married to a total hottie, Carrie is also a boss lady herself as the founder of the media website Womanista. After the couple realized their main living space needed a total overhaul, they looked to the studio at One Kings Lane for help. Mixing colors, textures and materials, the entire space is something I would be more than happy to spend time in. I love the layering of rugs in the living room, the colorful chandelier in the dinning room and the blue and white striped bistro chair bar stools, of course!
I’ve rounded up some of my favorite pieces below from One Kings Lane to help you get the look. Enjoy! Xo. Lauren
After browsing Mark D. Sikes blog, I came across his good friend Sara Bartholomew who is a designer based in Nashville. Sara’s home was recently featured in the latest Southern Living magazine and I had to share with you guys! It’s funny because I normally never pick up Southern Living when I’m at the news stand! My go-to’s primarily comprise of Arch Digest and House Beautiful. Any who, Sara’s feature has me thinking I’m missing out on some major design inspiration within the pages of Southern Living. I loved reading Sara and her family’s story about this home. Her and her family basically purchased this Nashville home before even stepping foot within the house! I think I’m way too OCD to ever do this… They of course did some major gutting of the interiors and totally transformed the home into a bold and classic Georgian style home. Sara did an amazing job mixing beautiful fabrics, whimsical accents and traditional pieces throughout each and every room. To take a peek of the entire feature, head on over to SouthernLiving.com.
I recently came across Jenny Keenan Interior Design and instantly fell in love with her portfolio. If I ever get to design a beach house, I know where I’m referring to for some major design eye candy. After browsing Jenny’s portfolio, I came across this Sullivan Island ocean front home and had to do a little home tour feature. I love the oversized globe in the kid’s playroom, I’m obsessed with the bunk bed room (how cute are the printed curtains?!) and the vibrant oversized photographs in the living room. Need to find the photographer / source, stat.
You can take a peep over at Jenny’s entire portfolio here. P.s. I enjoyed reading a bit of her blog as well and came across this quote below. Thought it was a good one. Happy Tuesday, ladies and gents!

Whenever I think of beach houses, I typically think of your blue and white coastal home (naturally). However, when I came across this all-white beach house located in Newport Beach I knew this one was for the design files. Living in New York has done wonders for my appreciation for space. With the sky high ceilings in the kitchen, various eating areas (how cute is that breakfast nook?!) and natural materials used throughout each and every room, it’s safe to say that this Newport beach house is a perfect example of what a beach house should be. I’ve rounded up some items below to help you get the look! XO. Lauren
