The stunning Belle Mead Retreat in the heart of Franklin for House of Hope TN was designed by Chad James Group. The firm joined a group of interior designers to participate in a show house that benefits children’s charities in the area. The firm designed the powder room and foyer.
The powder room was reminiscent of a jewel box with a lowered ceiling and dark walls in Belle Meade Green” – homage to the historic Nashville color. The walls have a decorative finish in a contrasting color creating scalloped wainscoting panels with three dimensional styled egg and dart crown molding. The foyer was a nod to Chad’s European travels. The custom balusters are designed to have a unique connection between positive and negative space and are inspired by a New England primitive style table. The flat sawn spindles gave 1800’s character to the modern farmhouse. The entryway commode highlights under tones of masculinity.
