The Process: More often than not we do new construction homes (which we’ve profiled in detail on the blog here and here), but we get a huge kick out of tackling remodels, too. This 3,623-square-foot home that we finished up and sold last month is great example of a thoughtful response to a classic bungalow, but we still managed to pack it full of Bynum Design hallmarks–custom details that make it feel one-of-kind, inspiring, roomy and cozy all at once.

Though we made some pretty massive alterations to the structure, the front exterior retained every bit of its original charm, so that the rhythm of this sweet street goes uninterrupted. Enclosing the courtyard with a garage/bonus room had the added benefit of giving the backyard the feeling of a cozy compound.

We also love the big shower filled with natural light, thanks to the frosted window we installed. A super sweet spot in this home is the dining room, located at the base of the stairs and just opposite the bar.

When you look up from the dining table, you see the stairs wrapping on around and a cutout in the ceiling, so that people upstairs can look right in on whatever social activity is happening downstairs. We debated whether or not the proximity to a busy church was a good or bad thing, but we ultimately decided it was a good thing because if you have a party you have a big, built-in parking lot for friends to park, unless it’s on a Wednesday night, when they host their bible study, in which case they will ask you to move your car.

The other great thing about it is when church is in session it’s very entertaining because there are lots of big hats, especially on Easter Sunday. One of the things that’s a Bynum Design hallmark is to do two-story spaces with huge windows, which in turn creates the vaulted ceilings that we’re also known for.

While we haven’t spoken with or met the owner, we have always envisioned this being a social space, filled with friends and conversation. In Nashville’s temperate months, we see the master suite’s doors flung open to the courtyard.

Check out our post on the D. Luxe Home blog about staging this house and throwing a big party to celebrate its completion.
