House for hope designer show house
Scheduled March 4-12 in South Franklin
Southern Preserve, a new neighborhood surrounded by the rolling hills of Williamson County, is the location for the House for Hope Designer Show House being unveiled in March. When the builder of the Nashville HGTV Smart home decided to mark its 30th anniversary, James Carbine, founder and president, wanted to skip the party and dedicate Carbine & Associates to building a charity home with a team of top Southeastern designers, tastemakers, and social media influencers.
“It’s been several years since the Carbine team has built a House for Hope and this year it will be a stunning home with 100 percent of the home sale proceeds benefiting area children’s charities. We hope to exceed our goal of $100,000,” says Carbine.
Modern farmhouse in style, the over 4,200 square foot home has a painted brick and James Hardie fiber cement lap siding exterior. Covered porches wrap the home which features a gourmet kitchen, four charming bedrooms, a children’s playroom, and game room.
“Profiled nationally, visitors willl know many of these designers from Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, and Georgia by their regional and national reputations. The home will be open daily for tour March 4-12 and you’ll be wowed by their work while taking away a ton of inspiring ideas,” says Carbine.
From fresh paint colors and combinations to textures and decor, the design team is creating what many are referring to as the top home event of the year. The gourmet kitchen will sport a smart, new finish for appliances from project partners GE and Electronic Express in the stunning kitchen space with custom beams crafted locally by Narrow Gate Artisans.
The 2017 House for Hope Designer Show House design team from middle Tennesse includes: Kristie Barnett, The Decorologist; Kara Blalock and Lauren Blalock, ReFresh Home; Amanda Carlson, The Interior Maven; Julie Couch, Julie Couch Interiors; Angie Forte and Jerome Farris, Peddler Interiors; Chad James, Chad James Group; Gina Julian, Gina Julian; Colleen Locke, Trot Home; Jamin and Ashley Mills, The Handmade Home; Redo Home & Design Team; and Karrie Seaton, J & K Design Studios, Brentwood.

Located in southwestern Williamson County, the Franklin community is just three miles south of I-840 off Lewisburg Pike. A boutique community, Southern Preserve will have only 20 homes at completion. The acre-plus lots allow for four and five bedroom homes with the anticipated beginning home prices at mid-$700,000s.
