Beth Haley’s Neighborhood Guide: Wedgewood Houston

See how Beth Haley spend an afternoon in the Wedgewood Houston neighborhood.

Wedgewood Houston is at the center of Nashville’s ever-expanding art community, with local galleries, studios, and workshops as evidence. A former warehouse district south of downtown, this cutting-edge neighborhood has risen in popularity for young and established makers, appreciators of art, and entreprenuers. Plus, there is plenty to eat and drink at the many restaurants, coffee shops, and breweries.

A bright open space abuzz with locals, this is a coffee shop you can feel good about. Humphreys Street is designed to raise up leaders in the community by employing students and reinvesting their profits into programs and scholarships to support students. And the coffee is as good as the mission.

10 Tiled Spaces You’ll Love

When renovating a kitchen or bathroom, it’s likely you’ll incorporate tiles as a key design element — or at least you should. Tiles add texture and personality, elevating any space. We tracked down the top tiled kitchens and bathrooms in our portfolio to give you a glimpse at how something as simple as tile can transform the design.

A welcomed spin on an all-white kitchen, this space introduces shades of gray to break up the monotony while maintaining a simple color scheme. On the island and countertops, a solid slab of marble adds a nod of sophistication while the tile sizes and color variations contribute a playful element.

The use of tile and muted colorways in the nearby butler’s pantry creates a significant impact in a small space. Larger, antiqued mirror tiles were chosen for the backsplash, and the solid marble countertop offer contrast in texture and pattern. Add a cocktail, and the space is complete.

Subway tiles are a go-to design choice for simple, sophisticated spaces. In this particular bathroom, a vertical line of smaller, grey and white glass tiles offers a dash of contemporary flair without interrupting the clean, minimalist design.

The application of marble tile makes this bathroom unique, and the differing patterns flow effortlessly. Within the black-and-white scheme, it’s the basketweave flooring that is the most striking.

Far from boring, this backsplash makes a bold statement. The color story is cool and unexpected, and it is a welcomed departure from all-white. If you are a lover of color, consider pairing various shades of your favorite color in your place.

Swoon Over This Casual & Inviting Home

A notable fan of all things color and certainly all things bright and bold, Beth Haley is a Nashville designer who brings spaces to life. Her perspective and unique touch make rooms and homes both joyful and livable. Recently, Beth worked on a project a bit outside of her typical color-splashed aesthetic, and in doing so, she again illustrated just how multifaceted she is.

These Nashville clients approached Beth in hopes that she could take the formal furniture and decor in their condominium and seamlessly incorporate it in their new airy and open Green Hills home. They entrusted Beth with this challenge of making the space more comfortable and approachable, yet still elegant and elevated. Beth worked these very traditional pieces into a home that now exudes character, comfort and warmth.
