History Made Modern by Jason Arnold Interiors

Past Meets Present

The REstyleSOURCE team are huge fans of the motto, ‘everything old is new again’……so when we came across this stunning Victorian update by Nashville interior designer Jason Arnold, we had to find out more! Checking in with the designer (and the creative force behind Jason Arnold Interiors), we discovered that it’s a Victorian-style residence, and it’s the home of the designer himself–lucky! Jason’s keen eye for history left many period details in place, such as the original exposed brick and shotgun-style layout, while pairing them with fresh modern updates such as crisp stripes and clean upholstery. A largely black & white palette, accented with hints of bolder color and glints of brass, is an of-the-moment trend that we’re sure will look timeless forever. Read on for more quotes from Jason on his inspiration, many more gorgeous photos of this project, and our REstyle Picks so that you can get inspired by this look!

“The house is a Victorian shotgun, so obviously it has a long & narrow floor plan. I have always loved a shotgun-style house, and I didn’t realize the true reason until I lived in one.”

“I really let the house speak for itself, so that was my inspiration.”

BGREstyle Trend Spotting

We’re loving Jason’s use of the current trend of moody, romantic black & gold. This bold pairing makes the bedroom attention-grabbing, while keeping furnishings modern, minimal and relaxing. A gold medal winner in style! For more examples of this high contrast trend, see our recent feature:

“We get to use and enjoy every room in our home every day and as a designer, that is my ultimate goal in all my projects, so it’s very rewarding.”

“Since I was the client, it made putting the space together more difficult for sure! I live a pretty simplistic lifestyle, though, and I feel that came through in this space.”

Any difficulties during this project? “Just the client!”
