When Roger and Ann’s clients stumbled upon a ramshackle, Tudor-style home in Nashville’s Belle Meade neighborhood, it was a match made in heaven — though one that needed some rather serious design intervention.

Inspired by the home’s history, as well as the architectural details and an antique Zuber wallpaper in the living room from which Roger extracted paint hues and tonal palettes to include throughout the house, the design team created interiors that feel equally serene and collected. Incorporating creative pattern play, the owners’ collection of abstract art, and treasures from their past, Roger, Ann, and their team gave this neglected house a second shot at being a beloved home.

After a five-year gut renovation (with special care taken to preserve the home’s original details), the updated interiors feel both sophisticated and bohemian; warm and whimsical. All with a deferential nod to the home’s past.
