Moving to Nashville

Southern Style Homes in Nashville TNSouthern Dream Home with Cherry Blossoms

I am incredibly excited to announce that the FH Family will be moving to Nashville, TN this summer. After nearly eight years in New York City, countless fashion jobs, meeting the man of my dreams, giving birth to two children at NYU hospital, birthday parties, FH events, and much more, our love for the city could not be stronger. That being said, we would like to continue growing our family {not quite yet… mamma needs another year or so}, we would like to raise our kids in a house {with a big playroom!!}, we need more space for even bigger parties, and being near my husband’s family will be a nice perk.

When we started our house search I couldn’t believe how each house is more gorgeous than the next. If you are visiting Nashville, I highly recommend driving Belle Meade Boulevard for some of the most incredible homes. Our home {OMG I still can’t believe I can say that!} is about 15 years old and is a classic Southern style — “classic white house with black shutters” look — which I really wanted! I love the regal look of white columns on the front porch, and then not featured in these photos is the gorgeous screened in patio in the backyard {finally, a garden party is in my future!!}, and overall just SO MUCH SPACE, which coming from New York, we totally appreciate.

So what’s on tap for house work? First off, our inspection came back with a laundry list of repairs, so while I wanted to renovate quite a bit, we are going to break down our renovations into two parts. The first phase of work will include:

  1. Re-doing the kitchen — replacing countertops, replacing the backsplash, painting, and potentially re-doing the floors.
  2. Re-doing the downstairs powder room — ripping down the wall paper and either re-wallpaper or painting, replacing the sink, and replacing the light fixtures.
  3. More cosmetic changes — Tearing down essentially all the wallpaper {which is in every room} and replacing with new wallpaper or paint, replacing all light fixtures, and re-carpeting all of the bedrooms.

Phase Two may include building a new master bedroom suite downstairs {the current one is upstairs} and restructuring the upstairs to make space for more kids bedrooms. As each room is re-done I will be sharing before and afters of the process as well as a list of todo’s and shopping links to my favorite pieces. If I leave anything out be sure to ask!!

I love all the friendships I have made along the way in NYC and I am so excited for you guys to take this journey with me to Nashville. If any of you are Nashville locals, I look forward to meeting!! {And any recommendations on great restaurants, coffee shops, workout classes, blow-out places, photographers — OMG, too much todo!!}

Here’s to the next step!! {Oh, and below is a sweet fountain in my backyard… dying!}
