We finished this project about a month ago, but we’ve been so busy that we are just now getting a chance to share it with you! We were thrilled when the Belle Meade Country Club approached us with needing help on designing their new addition and after months of blood, sweat, and tears we are very proud of how it came together. Take a peek inside…
When gathering ideas for the space, we were informed that this was a place to dine casually while taking in a ballgame which instantly gave Roger his vision. He came up with a concept that blended rustic, masculine elements with timeless Southern charm. The combination of the soft leather and the durable sunbrella upholstery mixed with versatile reclaimed oak tabletops offer a setting in which guests are able to relax and feel at home.
From the aluminum table bases to the hanging and wall-mounted light fixtures, we ensured that the key elements were one-of-a-kind and of the best artisan-made quality which is one of the details we are most proud to share.
We kept the walls, trim and cabinetry all the same shade of hunter green in the dining room conveying a cohesive feeling. This trick makes the space feel more cozy and inviting which is exactly how we wanted the restaurant to come across. The richness of the paint offsets the light aged wood on the ceiling as well as it does the English saddle-colored leather banquettes that rest against the walls. It was the perfect choice of hue as it complements all of the coordinating textures and materials without being distracting, or worse boring!
From the bar to the restrooms… this Sister Parish wallpaper is one of our go-to patterns for a classic print that will never tire, especially when it’s in a neutral. We threw a collection of vintage antlers up to add more interest to the walls of the men’s restroom. Finishing off the space is an antique Louis Philippe mirror and a custom vanity with a silestone top.
In the ladies’ room, we mimicked the effect of the grouping of antlers with a sequence of butterfly studies against a more playful, yet timeless Albert Hadley wallcovering. The two adjacent restrooms coordinate nicely without competing with one another. Again, we included some old pieces such as the antique pine chest (with a silestone top) and the antique sconces to offer more character to the space.
Hope you enjoyed the tour! If you live in Nashville and know a member of the Club, please go see it in person and let us know your thoughts! If you aren’t in town, let us know what you think anyway… Love all of the green? Want to know more about the sliding antique-mirrored doors on the bar? Leave a comment! We want to hear from you!
