The Real Homes of Professional Organizers
Simple and Southern: Joanna’s Front Porch
When we first partnered with The Home Edit, Joanna had just recently moved into her first house in Nashville, so she was eager to “buy beautiful furniture for my new outdoor spaces”. The front porch was the starting point for her inspiration since it is the entryway before the entryway into her beautiful new home.
“For the front porch, this space needed to stay classic all the way, but in a different way,” said Joanna. “I selected two of the Adirondack style chairs, matching ottomans and a cute, little side table in between. Simple and timeless – everything a southern, brick porch ever wanted.”
Thinking Outside the Box: Joanna’s Back Patio
Joanna’s outdoor makeover is not quite done yet! Now that she has a beautiful-styled front porch, she just needed Summer Classics furniture to complete her screened-in back patio.
“I wanted this space to function in a traditional way so that we could entertain family and friends on warm days and nights,” said Joanna. “But, additionally, since our entire The Home Edit team, aside from me, lives in Nashville, I also wanted to use this porch to host team meetings and gatherings, when we have jobs close to me.”
Always loving the look of classic teak wood – Joanna knew right away that she wanted to heavily incorporate this material for the into her back patio area. “For me, the Avondale Teak Collection, with white cushions and charcoal piping, sitting on my new red brick porches allowed each item to live its absolute best life!”
Champagne Taste: Clea’s Living Room Reveal
When Clea first came to us about designing her living room with Gabby furniture, she knew exactly what she wanted – a monochromatic color scheme for a clean and modern look. We started the process by deciding on fabrics, which was not too hard as Clea says, “it’s either black and white, or full rainbow”, so we went with a grey fabric combo to meet in the middle.
After looking through all of Gabby’s 100+ fabric options, Clea decided to with a soft gray velvet fabric on the customizable, Abbott Sectional. Since the couch is a velvety material, she went with a softer gray leather on the Monroe Club Chairs to add some textural differences to the room. And according to Clea, they are both holding up nicely from the daily wear and tear of her kids, guests, husband, and dog.
“My living room looks great and is now even more comfortable. So naturally, it’s going to be the favorite spot in the house for all of us.”
