A Beautiful Nashville Home Tour

It is rare for me to find a house tour where I wouldn’t want to change a thing, but I love everything about Sarah Bartholomew’s family home in Nashville, Tennessee and would be happy to move right in!

Sarah is an interior designer and designs homes all over the country, but the beautiful Georgian brick home she designed for her young family in Nashville is my favorite. It is classic and traditional with some lively twists, and there is an abundance of my favorite color combination: blue and white!

Here is her entryway:

The blue Pierre Frey Toiles de Nantes wallpaper is a favorite of mine.  The addition of the blue and white chinoiserie porcelain collection, the leopard print runner, a few antiques, and the hints of rattan and greenery make for a winning combination in my book!

Now, on to the blue and white living room:

I like the mix of the neutral and natural floor coverings and simple window treatments with the more more feminine and formal slipcovers and upholstery.

I always enjoy looking at how Sarah Bartholomew styles her tables, dressers, and mantels–it is an interesting and visually appealing mix of books, curiosities, greenery, and pretty decorative elements.

The gorgeous chinoiserie antique chest below, flanked by the architectural prints and surrounded by the blue and white porcelain, is a lovely vignette.

Although Sarah seems to favor traditional furnishings and antiques, she mixes in a few modern pieces such as the abstract art and contemporary coffee table below. This keeps things a bit more informal and youthful.

Let’s take a look at her beatifully layered neutral and natural family room:

The reading nook below, with its rattan chairs and lovely outside view, looks inviting.

The dining room:

The framed de Gournay panels in the dining room are a nice addition, and I love all the different greens that she used in the grasscloth wall coverings and upholstery.

The blue and white light-filled kitchen is timeless and beautiful. I love the Dutch door!

The laundry room below just might be the prettiest I have ever seen!

Sarah Bartholomew does a wonderful job mixing patterns, colors, and textures. She layers her rooms with classic and timeless pieces and adds touches of modernity to her rooms to keep things from feeling too formal and stuffy.

I hope you enjoyed this house tour as much as I did!

  1. Beautiful! I love her walls–each has either a bold wall paper or architectural elements or a lovely color.

  2. I definitely can see your style imprinted on this spectacular Nashville home! The laundry room spoke to me, as I plan to redecorate one of the bathrooms this summer.

    BTW, one of the pictures reminded me of Catherine’s circular art designs. Maybe when school is out she can frame more of her artwork…

    1. I love that laundry room! I think the wallpaper and fixtures would make for a beautiful bathroom. Many of the abstract paintings (if not all) in the house tour are by Kayce Hughes from Nashville as well and her work is available online. You are right, her paintings would provide excellent inspiration for my daughter and would make a great summer project! 💙
