When they returned from Hong Kong, the owners of this Belle Meade property knew they wanted a home that honored their time overseas yet felt appropriate for their hometown of Nashville. To accomplish that, and to create a backdrop for their clients’ blue chip art collection, Roger and Ann incorporated clean lines and punctuation marks of bold color. Antiques mingle with modern art here; masculine spaces are tempered by feminine curves. 

A standout (and supremely colorful) space, the red lacquered library with tea-papered ceiling showcases a collection of pottery and Asian art paired with contemporary art and antiques — a polished, ancient-meets-modern mix.

Roger and Ann continued that imaginative and unexpected mix throughout the home, mixing Biedermeier with Barbara Barry; Damien Hirst meets Marc Chagall; Eames with Clarence House. The result is a luxurious, one-of-a-kind home that feels as inviting as it does extravagant.
