This Tennessee home has just enough space for this on-the-go family of four.
“When we moved in five years ago everything was an oak color,” Denise Jones, member of Point of Grace, says of her home in Nashville, Tennessee. “It was a beautiful oak, but it was just too much for me. I need things to be bit lighter and have a feeling of airiness.” But with two teenage boys, finding the balance of her desired aesthetics and practical spaces for her family posed a bit of a challenge. Denise enlisted the help of designer Brad Ramsey to create a space that was functional for her and her husband, Stu, as well as their teenage sons.
“For us it’s not so much about style, it’s just about what works for our family,” Denise says. “I want it to be comfortable and homey—not too stuffy or a place where you can’t put your feet on the coffee table.”
