Sister Act

Exterior entryway with stone, brick, and gas lanterns, Eric Ross of Nashville interior design firm, Eric Ross Interiors, was the designer and decorator for this home.

This was the first home I ever built.  Well, actually my sister and her husband built it, but I was their interior designer and made all selections and completed the decoration.  It has been over 20 years since completion and with a few minor updates to upholstery and paint. It has provided a beautiful backdrop to MANY family gatherings and memories over the years.

This foyer floor was designed to hide dirt and grime brought in by this large and outdoorsy family.  I remember working through how to install the slate tile, which lays out perfectly within an oak grid pattern.

I laid out and extended the grid of the oak through the wooden floors beyond.  I still appreciate that detail when I walk into her house today.  I’m not great at math…

Bronze table base in foyer selected by Nashville interior designers before the home was finished - Eric Ross Interiors.

The centerpiece of the foyer is the cast bronze table base we selected before the house was finished, which shows local fauna that appears in the lake behind the house.  We literally found it in the basement of an antique shop.
