It’s the home that started an amazing interior design career. Together with her friend Emily Ward does Louisa Pierce run the interior design company, Pierce and Ward. And now Louisa Pierce has sold her amazing Nashville house.
Louisa and her husband were living in New York when they decided to move back south to Nashville to raise their children. After visiting multiple houses, new and old, she couldn’t find one that fit her needs. And so she drew her own dream house and found a contractor to build it, why not right?
The house is only a couple of years old but it has the charm of a historic home and that’s all thanks to Louisa’s impeccable sense of decorating style. But also due to her feelings for architecture.
The home is filled with interesting nooks and details. Look at the living room that is a few steps down from the kitchen, making it one bright open space but still feeling separate from each other.
The home is decorated in a mixture of styles: vintage and new are combined, same as expensive and cheap finds.
What is perhaps most impressive is the mixture of patterns in wallpapers, rugs, and other textiles. If you would look at all these patterns separately you wouldn’t think they would match up together but somehow it all works.
When the house was finished Louisa held a dinner party that included Emily Ward and her then-husband, Black Keys drummer, Patrick Carney who asked Louisa to decorate their home. Lily Aldridge and Caleb Followill followed. Now Pierce & Ward have designed houses for Leonardo DiCaprio, Brie Larson, and Karen Elson.
“I like things to look a little weird, not too pretty, because then it’s just more interesting.”
Take a look at these eclectic homes:
- A collector’s eclectic home in Texas
- English country style in a San Francisco home
- An interior designer’s colorful London worker’s cottage
- Soothing colors in designer Heidi Caillier’s Eclectic Washington home
Louisa Pierce sold this eclectic Nashville home a couple of years ago. I can’t wait to see her new home, I’m sure it’s going to be just as beautiful. Until then, take a look at the Pierce and Ward Instagram page for more eclectic interior inspiration.
