Jonathan Savage’s Guest Bedroom in the Traditional Home Southern Style Now Showhouse

By |Jun 20, 2016|Decorating, Featured, Guest Bedrooms, Tips & Solutions, Traditional Home|0 Comments

We recently attended the inaugural Southern Style Now Festival in New Orleans, and the absolute highlight was Traditional Home magazine’s showhouse, a Queen Anne Victorian mansion located in the Uptown District on St. Charles Avenue. Aptly described by Curbed New Orleans as a “veritable funhouse for design lovers,” the showhouse is a spectacular homage to the region’s rich and colorful cultural traditions.

More than 25 local and national designers, all originally from the south, were invited to lend their contemporary vision to this uniquely southern-style house, and we were excited to have the opportunity to work with some of them by providing furniture and decor. One of those designers is Jonathan Savage of Nashville, who designed a bedroom in the guest cottage. Below, we talked to him about the project.
