Green Hills has long been a shopping mecca for the Greater Nashville area
Green Hills has long been a shopping mecca for the Greater Nashville area, and its collection of home-related shops continue to grow in this fairly narrow corridor.
Start your tour of the area by turning off Hillsboro Road onto Crestmoor Road and turn left into the parking lot for 2104 Crestmoor.
Bennett Galleries’ focus is to show works of contemporary paintings, sculpture, ceramics, and works on paper by local, regional, and international artists. It also includes custom and archival framing, unique gifts, jewelry, and home accents.
Next door, Color shelters a captivating collection of home accessories, tableware, glassware, gifts and Juliska dinnerware amidst vivid colors, incredible aromas, lush textures, gorgeous baubles and unexpected combinations.
Housed at this same is Nadeau, which offers unique, handcrafted, and affordable furniture that features beauty, warmth, and a bit of authentic, ethnic culture in the shape of benches, armoires, tables, and more.
A long block down Crestmoor lies a two-story building which actually faces the mall, not Crestmoor. Inside this building you’ll find Green Hills Framers, which offers a large selection of custom frames and some art as well.
Back on Hillsboro Road, proceed south to 4009 Hillsboro Road, also known as Grace’s Plaza. On the south side of the building you’ll find Marymont Plantation, which has been listed in Bunny Williams’ book, Affair with a House, as one of 17 antique resources in the world and in Elle Décor as one of the best shops in Nashville.
Inventory might include anything from a rare 17th century Italian credenza, 18th century dining chairs, pieces from the Doris Duke estate, or artwork by Picasso and Andy Warhol.
Behind the building you’ll find Bella Linea’s new location. This store specializes in linens from across the world in a wide range of patterns, colors, and prices. The store also feature bath linens and accessories, table linens, gifts, a bridal registry, and furniture accents.

Whitelaw, Gavin Brooks, Holly Metzger, and others.
Across the hall is Nasir Oriental Rugs, which feature rugs, many antiques, that are hand selected by the owner and shipped from a number of countries.
Leave the parking lot from the back and turn left onto Bandywood. Turn right into the Fashion Square shopping center and find Happiness Place which features art, furnishings, and seasonal decor of all kinds—all designed to make you happy.
Nearby, Plaid Rabbit offers nursery furnishings, linens, lamps, and more, as well as clothing for infants and small children.

Less than a block further south on Hillsboro Road, Zia’s may be first and foremost a florist, but you won’t want to miss a chance to browse through her small shop of gift and home accessory items. In keeping with the florals for which she’s noted, the shop has a seasonal influence.
Next door is Rug Expressions, which offers a select assortment of fine antique and decorative rugs at “carefully trimmed” prices, according to Shahin Mohsenin. Despite a shrinking supply of antique rugs and carpets there is an increasingly sophisticated demand for fine pieces. This shop also offers rug cleaning and repair, buying, and trading.
Across the road at 4108 Hillsboro Road, you’ll find the Green Hills Antique Mall which features more than 120 dealers, 10 of whom shop abroad each year.
