Crieve Hall Tour of Homes & 2019 Decorating Trends

One of my favorite things to do is to go to neighborhood home tours all around the Greater Nashville area. They are often annual events in historic districts where you are able to see both excellently preserved architecture and brave, bold remodels for today’s generation. My own house was on our neighborhood tour 10 years […]

Historic Home Tour for the Holidays

I’ve had a passion for historic homes dating back from when I was a small child. One of my favorite things to do is attend historic home tours. Taking in the craftsmanship and intricacies of the architecture, as well as seeing how the homeowner populates the home with furnishings and decoration, always fuels my imagination […]

Bathroom Trends from Nashville Parade of Homes

I started off my week in the best possible way – with a tour of the latest Parade of Homes in my city! Actually, this home tour is right outside of Nashville in the bedroom town of Nolensville, Tennessee.   I paid particular attention to the bathrooms of these homes, which I am featuring for […]

Southern Interior Trends You Need to Know – The Nashville Symphony ShowHouse 2015

Last Wednesday, I attended an invitation-only exclusive sneak peak of The 2015 Nashville Symphony Showhouse and Garden Party.

The Decorologist Paint Color Tour

The Decorologist's entry

Readers frequently ask me to tell them the names of the paint colors in various rooms of my home.  I decided to share them all in one place in case you were wondering, too!  So settle in for the grand tour and all the coordinating paint color names.  All the photos in this post were […]

Christmas with The Decorologist

Funky Family Home – Hit or Miss?

This home was featured in the latest issue of Country Living.  It’s an eye-catcher, to be sure.  But on closer inspection, I began to question whether I loved it or hated it.  I don’t mean to be brutal, because it is a fun family home and everyone is entitled to their own sense of style.  […]
