GARDEN VARIETY DESIGN

 

Nashvillian and designer Jeannette Whitson of Garden Variety Design transformed her Kiawah Island, South Carolina, beach house into family-friendly hangout with fresh, white paint and plenty of tone-on-tone textures.   Her beach house as seen below was published in the June 2014 edition of Southern Living Magazine.

-5 “When you’re working in such a limited color range, patina and texture become very important design elements,” Whitson says. In the dining room I started with an antique French walnut trestle table then added rattan chairs and anchored the room with a white cowhide rug.  Choosing a cowhide rather than an Oriental keeps the feel of the room much less formal and adds great texture to the space.

Picture 5 The kitchen (pictured below) is housed in the home’s grand turret. “That circular counter made a believer out of me in white Corian,” says Jeannette, who simply refreshed the room with a new coat of  China White paint.  The same color also used in the living room.   The kitchen’s clean lines are highlighted by white china and flatware, great sunlight and a mix of old and new silver.

Ironware International

Picture 10 In 1988, Karin Eaton founded Ironware International to develop an American market for the original works of the Atelier Picard in Normandy, France. Twenty-six years later, the beauty, quality and integrity of these pieces reflect the skill and tradition of the three generations of this family of blacksmiths.

Picture 1 In Ironware’s sophisticated Nashville finishing studio, skilled artisans hand apply a range of patinas that compliment this vibrant work. Using leather, hand-blown glass, stone, upholstery and caste bronze, our design innovations create a fresh look from this ancient craft.

Picture 11 With over 600 original designs, architects and designers look to Ironware to meet the specifications of their unique projects. Because each piece is entirely handmade, we are able to offer customizations that fit our clients’ needs.

Peter Nappi

Peter Nappi Logo

In 1904, Peter Nappi emigrated from southern Italy to the United States, bringing with him a family tradition in shoemaking dating back more than a century. His attention to detail and dedication to both his craft and family inspired his grandson to revive his legacy, officially establishing the Peter Nappi brand in 2011.

Designed in Nashville and handmade in Tuscany, Peter Nappi premium leather footwear and goods are a distinctive blend of Italian heritage and American personality.  Our pieces are meant to be both loved and lived in, wearing beautifully with time and age as they take on the signs of a life well travelled.
