ABC’s hit show Nashville and creating Nashville style in your home are both fabulous guilty pleasures. If you’re not totally familiar with the plot, let’s just say it’s a tale of two strong country performers, one old school and elegant and the other a sexy crossover fresh face.
Both characters live in a world of big business, entertainment and style. If you studied the interiors associated with each woman, a pattern emerges. Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) the established star exudes a traditional Southern look while Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) the sassy newcomer is surrounded by a more playful, sophisticated vibe.
Rayna’s bedroom is a sea of sumptuous fabrics, tassels and fringe befitting a Nashville style country legend. Deep hued fabrics and traditional furnishings rule the room. Traditional table lamps seem fitting to this space. I can actually see or would suggest over-the-top dramatic chandeliers for this room. The fabric headboard, or tester is so rich and deep that the reflective qualities of a chandelier creates the perfect balance.
Shopping List: John Richard Gold and Red Velvet Accent Pillow, Wildwood Celadon Classic Urn Table Lamp.
Juliette’s space is much more modern, hurray! The cool color tones and shimmering surfaces create a feminine and sexier backdrop for the rising star. These colors are on-point for current trends and highlight the difference between both singers. Is one on the rise as the other falls? Don’t be too sure. Don’t you love a juicy evening soap, especially one with so much Nashville style?
Shopping List: Decorative Blue Damask Pillow With Hidden Zipper, John Richard Crystal Pyramid Table Lamp.
