PureWow recently shared its picks for the Top 10 Home Design Trends of 2015, and there are definitely some good looks in the mix — aesthetics we see popping up regularly in new homes hitting the market, like the contemporary and completely cool new Sevier Park development in East Nashville.
If you’re thinking about making some cosmetic changes to your home in preparation for putting it up for sale, fixing up the new home you just bought, or if you just like to keep tabs on design trends, it’s a good read.
Curious about how those home design trends bear out in Nashville? Here’s a collection of homes on the market around here that pick up the design notes the lifestyle site points out:
A focus on clean and bright whites
715A Powers Avenue, Nashville
An overwhelming amount of white can give off the dreaded hospital feeling. But buyers are liking a clean and crisp mix of bright whites and warmer, more lived-in complements — in this East Nashville home at 715A Powers Avenue, the light walls, ceilings, rug and fireplace tile are warmed up by the wood floor tones and some comfortable upholstered furniture and throw pillows.
923 A Gale Lane, Nashville
When you’re aiming for a luxurious retreat, nothing takes the master en suite all the way there like a freestanding tub. Clawfoot tubs can really make a historic home pop; more modern homes — like this incredible “Wow” of a new build near 12 South, at 923 A Gale Lane — get a great pop out of contemporary tubs with clean lines.
Big, eye-grabbing art
6000 Captain Freeman Parkway, Franklin
Gallery walls with well-organized collections of small pieces are still popular, but gaining traction: one big statement piece that anchors a room. This Franklin home, at 6000 Captain Freeman Parkway, has an uncluttered design aesthetic overall, so the large abstract piece brings warmth and charm without fighting that.
Cool and comfortable sectionals
417 B 35th Avenue North, Nashville
A relaxed vibe for lounging, PureWow says, is on the rise. And modern home design doesn’t have to miss out on that. This Sylvan Summit space, at 417 B 35th Avenue North, makes that clear — who doesn’t want to snuggle up on that sectional with all those throw pillows and binge-watch some Netflix?
1605 Electric Avenue, Nashville
We don’t honestly see this all that much in new builds in and around Nashville lately, but here’s a good example of how great it can look when done right. This East Nashville home, at 1605 Electric Avenue, mixes bright cabinetry for lots of enclosed storage and cool, dark shelving that picks up the warmth in the wood floors.
