New Gulch Bar Gets the BHD Design!

Open for business!

There’s a new hot spot in the Gulch that has a special place in my heart.  Hops + Crafts, proprietors of craft beers from local breweries as well as micro-breweries from around the country, is a great place to sample different brews and the atmosphere isn’t too shabby either, if I do say so myself.  I’m very proud of having worked with the owners on the interior design of their new digs and  I couldn’t be happier with the end result.



The owners were great to work with on this project.  They came to me with a few ideas and were very open to mine.  The end result is a comfortable spot to hang with your friends that also has enough hip factor to fit in with the Gulch landscape.      We mixed a lot of materials in the space; reclaimed barn wood, chrome, glass and even chalkboard paint.  I believe in the power of chalkboard paint!

The chrome and wood barstools make a good contrast against the barn wood bar.  I love these stools because they are the perfect combination of industrial and retro.  They’re pretty comfy too.


Who loves this table? I do!  The legs are polished chrome and the top is reclaimed wood that has some pretty serious graining.  I though it paired well with the antelopes in the fabric.  Frolicking antelopes always make for a good time!

The Gulch skyline…..not a bad view on a Saturday night. 

This project was so much fun to work on and the owners were awesome.  Good luck guys and I look forward to coming over and making use of that patio!

 Hops + Crafts is located at 319 12th Avenue South, Nashville TN 37203

Destination: Morocco!

From the light fixtures to the tile work, Moroccan design is all about the finishing touches. Moroccan style home decorating invites rich colors of Middle Eastern interiors, dynamic contrasts, traditional patterns and uniqueness of Moroccan decor and accessories.

Small tiles and mosaic designs decorate many Moroccan home interiors.

Mosaic Tile

Moroccan furniture and accessories encompass natural materials of wool, silk, glass, leather, clay and metal. Hand painted and hand carved details are quite prevalent in their designs as well. Then there is the iconic Moroccan lantern.


Moroccan style is not for the minimalist.


This beautiful bedroom balances all the vibrant colors with white textured walls and the intricate, traditional, silver Moroccan lantern.

For a more relaxed Moroccan theme, try bold cool colors such as this.

The iconic lantern, decorative architectural features, and bold pops of color create this beautiful office/living space.


The sheer floor to ceiling white curtains add to the effect in this room.


This room looks so incredibly warm and inviting!

For an outdoor space with a Moroccan theme, I love these ideas:

What screams Moroccan inspiration to you?
