Dream Home: Refined and Rustic in Nashville

We love the effortless beauty of an all neutral home layered with rich organic textures. The minimalist color palette feels refined while the rustic natural woods and metal accents add character. Today’s dream home nails the look. Designed by the talented Vintage South Development (we’ve feature their work before in this kitchen spotlight), the new build property is for sale in Nashville. Read on to see everything we are loving in this home, and then someone snatch this home up quick. It’s too pretty.

Even with dark wood floors and floor to ceiling slate paint, this dining room feels fresh and airy. Natural woods, linen slipcovered dining chairs, and a chunky jute rug create a beautiful light contrast. Woven baskets on the wall add such pretty texture and are an affordable way to add art to a room.


Charcoal cabinets and a rustic wood hood are paired with a pretty white marble backsplash and quartz countertops. The combination creates a beautiful rustic warmth with an industrial edge that feels modern.  The modern shape of the brass pendants it’s a fun pairing with the more traditional 6 arm wrought iron chandelier in the adjoining living space. Mixing up the color and style of your hardware and lighting creates a refreshing effortless vibe in your home.


Texture and pattern add interest and warmth in the living room. The neutral plaid rug, shiplap feature wall, linen sofa, and mudcloth pillows are all subtle details that keep the space from feeling flat.  The black accents in the mostly white space blend with the rich charcoal kitchen. In an open-concept home, you want each room to feel defined and distinctive while still being cohesive. Fresh greens on the coffee table work with the green plant photography on the fireplace to add a vibrant pop of color.


We love statement lighting. Traditional pendant lanterns down the hallway make the space feel rich and designed.



Such a pretty master bathroom. The black and white marble hex tile makes such a statement as does the black painted door. Wood mirrors, woven baskets, and brass hardware add warmth to the black and white space.


These cement hex tiles are the prettiest green. This subtle hint of color in the bathroom feels spa-like and refreshing switch up from the black and white used throughout the home.
