We designed a home for a family in Chapel Hill, NC last year. We had a great time working with our client (you have to love great client) and Dixon Kirby the architect/builder. I will break this home up into a few posts. This first post includes the foyer, dining room, gallery, and ,my favorite, the music room. We loved the mix of traditional and modern in this home designed for a great family. You can imagine the music room with one of the children taking piano lessons or a chic cocktail party. That is what is why we love this house so much. It’s design straddles the line of elegance and livability. Take a look for yourself on our blog or pick up a copy of Southern Home magazine where the house is featured in their spring issue! Watch for the follow up posts on this home!

Hi all! We are excited that the Tracery book is available! So I have been going through projects that we have loved designing over the last 11 years in business. This is one of my all time favs. We had the house reshot for the book by Jean Allsopp and styled by Lynn Nesmith. I wanted to share a few photos of the home today. We worked on the project with the fabulous architects at Dungan Nequette Architects. Enjoy a look around the living room, foyer, and dining room in this home…
Until next time…
One thing us girls at Tracery L.O.V.E is a great kitchen. This is a kitchen we worked on last year during a renovation. The home is located in Old Seagrove (around the corner from my own home. It was fun to work on a project where I could ride my bike to site visits! So take a look around at this kitchen…
Now back to making my pound cake using an old school recipe. As I said…. we love kitchens.

We are so excited to share with you all that we are featured in the September issue of Traditional Home!! Check out the home of Stephanie Carter. She is a client and a friend and we had so much fun on this project in Seagrove and look forward to more fun projects in the future(we’ve been talking about some fun ones!). She is an incredible mom, friend and fashion designer and just exudes creativity. We had lots of fun brainstorming ideas for her family home. The home before was a 70’s home with teal green carpet no details and mirrors glued to the walls to laminate floors and countertops. We had lots of fun taking that dreary looking home and creating this! So pick up the issue on news stands (we are page 112-121).
I hope you enjoy reading more about this home!
P.S. Also check out page 26 where I along with some amazing designers talk about screens in the our Designers Say…. Section of the magazine.
Hi all! We are working on our website so I have been going through lots of photos of past projects. I found some photos that we had not shared with all of you and we wanted to share. We had so much fun designing this home. The team was so much fun and was so talented which made the project that much better. I will have a few more posts like this as I find more photos to share with all of you.
This beautiful painting is by artist Mallory Page. The painting paired with an antique chest and a collection of white serving pieces we found at antique shops and flea markets were just the perfect addition to the master bedroom.
This little detail appeared in the main stair hall. I loved this trophy collection so much it now resides in my own living room. The dear painting by a local 30A artist Justin Gaffrey was the perfect touch above the antique white chest we found at Scott’s Antique Market.
One of the other small items I kept after the house was complete. This funny little dog. Someone along the way broke his leg and glued it back on. He added the perfect bit of southern character to the coffee table. He now lives on my desk at the Tracery studio.

Everyone have a great weekend!
Hi all! Our Nashville project has so many fun rooms it is hard to choose your favorite…. But I think the dining room is up there for me. With the black and white wallpaper and green accents the room really makes an impact when you turn the corner. Info on a couple items that make the room…The piece of art is a commission by Allison Wickey and the cowhide console was a custom design. The rug is from one of our favorite rug shops, Paige Albright Orientals in Mountain Brook, Alabama. One of the coolest things that happened during the presentation of this room was our client telling us her grandmother had a dining room with black and white wallpaper and green drapes. So she loved it! I am excited to see photos of all the dinner parties and other dinners that will take place in this room.
Have a great Tuesday evening!
Hi all! We just finished 2 installs this month and we have another one next week. So life has been nuts around here to say the least. Our Nashville clients are living in their new home and we are wrapping up the final small details. We are going to photograph it next month and we will share more photos with you! But for the mean time here are a few shots I took during the install.
I have to say one last thing about this project. This project had such a wonderful group of people on the project team and clients. It was a pleasure to to be part of this projects. And to all my peeps at Tracery thanks for all of your talent and hard work!
Have a great weekend!
