August Newsletter – Happenings

Why hello again! Don’t know about you but we can’t believe it is August or better known the “Sunday of Summer”. We’ve been looking forward to sharing pictures from a job for months and are glad to finally have a second to catch our breath and take a moment to say HI to everyone; hope you have been well! Here’s a peak at what we’ve been up to this summer!


Featured Topic: Hot New Job

These gorgeous photos barely do this space justice. This special project, high among the trees, was a delight for us. It was the dream trifecta- client, location, and design. When all conditions are right, magic can happen! Here’s a little preview of what we have store for you later this month on the blog.

Not every project has a singular, calling card color but this job certainly did. The vibrant yellow became a running theme we carried through the space. The color helps unify the space and makes the home feel whole. 

Working with fantastic architectural details like floor to ceiling windows, angular roof lines, and extraordinary views, we aimed to create a space that felt airy yet grounded. Unique pairings- antique to modern, vintage to contemporary, create a sense of intrigue.

We loved working on this project and can’t wait to share the rest of the
space soon! 
Last but not least, here is an extraordinary transformation from porch tosunroom. Our client loved the layout of their home but felt like they
were missing one space- a casual, sunny gathering space. The design challenge was to find a way to make the space feel like a natural part of the
house –  not an afterthought. 

Featured Vendors: Perennials and Sutherland

You know its summer when you are eyeing every single one of Perennials fabric samples in the showroom and wish we had the entire collection of rugs in stock in the showroom. Perennials has long been one of our favorite performance fabric and textile lines because they offer great quality, longevity, and style. You get it all. This year, we’re completely blown away by their line of block print inspired throw rugs. Great for use indoor or out, these rugs add a handmade, graphic quality that would be the perfect first layer to so many of the spaces we are working on.

Featured: The Newest Addition to the Family

We welcomed not one but two new hires to BHD this summer and already we can’t imagine the office without them! Meet Mia!

MIA – Originally from Kentucky, Mia studied Interior Design at High Point University and moved to Nashville with her husband two years ago after working as a Design Director for a textile firm in NC. Her experience working with textiles help shape her design aesthetic and she is a wiz at mixing textures and patterns to give a space character. Her style is a mix of contemporary, mid-century modern, and industrial. She loves integrating vintage elements, bold abstract art, and architectural design features. When not designing at BHD, Mia loves traveling, riding horses, being outdoors, and exploring the city.


Happenings: Beth out West

Seeing new things is good for the soul and we’ve all loved the glimpse Beth gave us of Colorado. Here we see gorgeous Red Rock Park which is literally owned an operated by the city of Denver. On the lower left is the open air amphitheater where some of the best shows in the country take place year round. Carved into the side of the mountainous hill with views across the horizon, this is a truly spectacular place! Isn’t it amazing how diverse the landscapes are across our great country. Sometimes we take for granted all we have but trips like this always remind us how lucky we are that nature can be this beautiful.
