Vibrant Southern Charm by Redo Home & Design

Style Designed for Living

It was love at first sight when the REstyleSOURCE team spotted this art-gallery-meets-Southern-hospitality home by Nashville designer Lori Paranjape. Her vision for this spacious residence perfectly blends contemporary style with ‘Vibrant Southern Charm,’ soft global textiles with sleek stone and wood surfaces, a brushstroke theme inspired by abstract art…and of course, the main showstopper, a stunning custom glass-walled wine cellar that functions as the visual centerpiece of the house. Lori says, “I had the pleasure of designing this home along with the architect, Champ Webb, and the homeowners. We have a great chemistry and a shared vision of the house we could create.” She goes on to describe the family that calls this house their home “casual, relaxed and very real”–a fact which is obvious in the playfulness, color & personality that shows through in every detail of this house. It’s a winning collaboration all around, and we checked in with Lori to a few more of the details that went into creating this gorgeous space. Most of the furnishings were sourced from Lori’s amazing retail shop in Nashville (Redo Home & Design), with stunning French oak floors from Nashville’s Francois & Co. Read on for more from the designer, as well as a collection of our own REstyle Picks based on this design so that you can ‘shop the look’ locally!

“I wanted this house to be drop-dead gorgeous, but I also wanted to it be a home for my clients.”

“The floors in this home are pretty spectacular. They are French Oak with a matte oil finish, from Francois & Co of Nashville. We waited a few months for these to cross the Atlantic and make their way to the house… and it was SO worth the wait!”

“Building this house was a designer’s dream! The homeowners and I had built a home similar to this one previously, but the scale was much smaller and not quite as grand… this time they wanted me to go for it.”

Designer Notes: Overall Vibe

The house has a LOT of square footage, so that presents its own set of challenges. A casual, relaxed and very real family lives here… I didn’t want to build them a museum with large rooms that echo and feel empty. While each room is beautiful, they also have purpose and welcoming vibe. The gorgeous library is the mom’s favorite spot for downtime with her laptop; there is a media lounge upstairs for the husband and his buddies to play cards and watch the game, and the kids have a playroom that will host some epic sleepovers for their cousins. I wanted this house to be drop-dead gorgeous, but I also wanted to it be a home for my clients.

“The main goal was to build a timeless foundation that will still be beautiful in a hundred years.”

Designer Notes: Lori’s Favorites

I have some special favorite details that are built into the house… the glass wine room with floating pegs for the bottles (I think that’s a showstopper!), all of the black doors and windows in the main corridor of the house blur the lines on the age of the house; and those floors, can’t say enough about those floors!
