Design Is For Living
Chestnut Hall designers have been working hard to bring Traditional beauty and comfort to homes in the MidSouth for 25 years this year! Our customers return again and again because we understand that residential design is personal and tailored, and living spaces are organic and ever-changing, just like each unique family who lives among each piece in their homes. A sofa becomes more than a beautiful piece of stuffed and fluffed furniture when it leaves our showroom and arrives in a home. It becomes part of the framework of the family, as the place where ballgames and favorite movies are watched, where an important conversation takes place, where a power nap is taken or a makeshift bed is made when the house is full of guests. It may be the memorable favorite spot where Christmas presents are opened and family prayers are said.
The glossy magazine photos of beautiful environments frozen in time look gorgeous with no one in the room, the accessories placed perfectly on the cocktail table, the curtains pulled just right, and the books on the shelf organized by color. But after the photographers leave, the room is unfrozen and returns to a living organism, as magazines get scattered on that cocktail table, an extra chair is pulled in from the next room for another guest, and a child leaves a toy on the floor. In our eyes, this is when the room is the most beautiful.
As homes become reflections of the families who live in them, we believe Traditional design reflects a lifestyle of living well and living beautifully, which is about much more than acquiring beautiful things. Here we will post our style inspirations, the things that drive our taste, and tips on how to keep your home current and fresh while remaining timeless!
