Balancing the Trendy with the Timeless When Creating a Perfect Bedroom

For designer Melissa Frederiksen, the idea of interior trends is a slippery slope that can lead to pricey looks and a short shelf life. “A trend generally doesn’t stand the test of time,” says Frederiksen “People don’t usually redecorate often, so it’s easy for décor to look passé if it’s oversaturated with trendy looks.” Through numerous Nashville and Michigan remodels and design consultations with her Atmosphere 360 Studio, Frederiksen has found bedrooms a common place where people are more prone to be drawn to trends. It would make sense that since you spend so much time there, your bedroom should …

Want to Learn Floral Arranging while doing volunteer work?

Join the Petal Project and help make the lives of the residents of Morning Point in Brentwood Blossom. Our Foundress, Rebecca Kewley Holladay, always had a strong interest in Event Planning and also had dreams of one day opening an assisted living facility.  She realized that the flowers used at various events (weddings, funerals, corporate events, etc.) were often discarded afterward and had the idea that these flowers could be repurposed. Thus was planted the seed for what would eventually become the Petal Project. As a volunteer for Hospice, Rebecca shared the idea with the Volunteer Coordinator, Dan Smith. Both felt like they were on …
