Sure, we custom designed this rug and had it made by a company in Atlanta, Georgia- "Wool By Hand"

I love the tile behind the stove. Could you please provide more information regarding that specific tile? Also, we have a 6 burner Viking stove with grill. It has a stainless steel hood that has heat lamps and a backing (where the tile is in this picture) with a stainless shelf for sitting food to be kept warm. I REALLY do not like the stainless back as it is hard to keep clean. We want to add tile, but need a shelf for warmer. What kind of shelf do you have here above the stove? Much appreciation for your answer.

The tile we used in the kitchen was a variation of Amber, Grey, and Bone ceramic tiles. As for the shelf, we had a stainless shelf created to match the stove. However, I am unsure if it would provide the heating element that you need. Hope that helps!

Thanks for your comment! This was a custom pattern of some great ceramic 2 x 6 tiles, we found them at Renaissance Tile in Nashville.

I love the countertop/wood combination. What is the countertop material? What type of wood is used in the cabinets? Thanks!

The countertop material is a grey french limestone and a warm teak wood is used on the cabinets.

Fireplace niches - We are using this fireplace as an inspiration in our new home. My builder is concerned about making the niches//alcoves. I think the stone we picked doesn't work easily with this idea. How did you craft the niches with the stone?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Candles Warm the Winter Home
Books and knickknacks are the usual props for shelves, but what about a slew of candles? Come nighttime, this living room will be adequately lit and incredibly cozy.
Southern hospitality is still alive and well in Nashville no matter what the style. "The design industry can lean very edgy and progressive, but our spaces always have a warmth that reflects the friendly and welcoming spirit of the people of Nashville," says interior designer Kathy Anderson of The Anderson Design Studio. Warm wood, stone, lighting and comfortable upholstered furniture find their place in Nashville's contemporary decor.
Christine Tusher added this to 5 Tips for Hosting a Memorable Cocktail Party
You can also use lighting to encourage guests to congregate in specific areas. I love how the LED candles create a warm, inviting gathering space in this living area, while the brighter lighting in the kitchen enables the host to assemble snacks with ease.
