Beautiful Home Tour in Franklin Tennessee

This past week I was honored to be invited to a small get together for #NashvilleInfluencers, Nashville area bloggers, designers, columnists, television hosts, and media specialists.  It was hosted by Dana Tucker and Nancy McNulty of Forest Home Media and was held at Dana's beautiful home in Franklin.




After we all got to meet each other, chat, and refresh ourselves with some delicious Southern Breeze punch (recipe at the end of the post), margaritas, wine, and tasty appetizers, Dana treated us all to a tour of her home.  And, I get to share it with you!

We started in the foyer.  Notice the ceiling.  Rather than remove the original popcorn ceiling, they chose to cover it with these beautiful tiles.  Love the look!


Dana and her husband are the creative genius behind Bella-Tucker Decorative Finishes (you'll notice all of the beautiful painting techniques in the following pictures.)  They painted the hallway with large gray and white stripes.  The scale works perfect here.


Check out the family room!  They changed the color of the brick with paint and added a piece of rusted metal roofing above.  




Adjacent to the family room is a sitting area.  They stenciled this beautiful pattern on one wall.  Like the stripes in the foyer and hallway, the scale of this pattern works perfectly on this large wall.




This bedroom belongs to Dana's daughter.  I didn't capture how great this room really looked.  
Another beautiful wall!



Their son's room with plank wall and distressed closet doors...perfect for a boy!


The sitting area in the kitchen.  Did you notice the shimmer on the wall?  It's silver and it's gorgeous.


This is in her kitchen leading to the deck.  Who knew you could put a screen door on French doors?  Ok, Dana knew and she did it.  I'm making a mental note for any French doors in my future.


Dana's whole house is incredible but I think this is my favorite room.  It's her home office...lots of natural light, great vintage pieces, and a beautiful chandelier...l-o-v-e it!


Although there were many more, I've got one last room to share.  This one is downstairs and has a silver wall like the kitchen.  And, look at the floor.  Know what that is?


It's a stencil on painted concrete.  Really, it is!  
It looks so good, it's hard to believe that's a concrete floor.

Dana's house is even better looking in person.  I hope you enjoyed the tour. Here's the Southern Breeze punch recipe I promised.  It came from Carmen Johnston, the garden lifestyle expert with Southern Living Plant Collection, who attended the party as well.

Southern Breeze

1 cup sugar
7 cups water
1 (0.22 ounce) envelope unsweetened blue raspberry lemonade mix
1 (6-ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 (46 ounce) can unsweetened pineapple juice, chilled
1 (2-liter) bottle ginger ale, chilled

Stir together first 4 ingredients in a 2-quart pitcher; pour evenly into 5 ice cube trays, and freeze at least 8 hours.  Combine pineapple juice and ginger ale, serve over raspberry ice cubes

Note:  The raspberry ice cubes can be made in advance and stored in heavy-duty zip-top plastic bags in the freezer until ready to serve.


Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
