Tennessee Dream Home
This is the title of an article in Coastal Lifestyle Magazine’s April/May edition. The featured home is Resort Resale Owner, Amy Moore’s.
The article contains many photos of the home and quotes by Amy. She talks about the home, her decorating style and Resort Resale where she purchased much of the furnishings, decor and light fixtures.
We have included excepts along with some paraphrasing below. To see the online magazine edition, (the article starts on page 63) click here
The article starts with one of Amy’s favorite quotes from the legendary Billy Baldwin, “Be Faithful to your own taste because nothing you really like is ever out of style,”
“While living in TN, I had always loved this house and when it came onto the market it was easy to convince Shane, my husband, that we needed to buy it. The house has 4 bedrooms and three baths and sits on 5.4 acres with views all around. We were seriously planning on it being our forever home.” Amy continues, “Buying the home was definitely the easy part! We moved into the basement with our two teenagers and completely renovated the main floor. Needless to say, the kids spent a lot of time at Nana’s!”
Working at Resort Resale (which is a fine furniture consignment store), Amy was able to decorate and furnish the home exactly the way she wanted it. The home truly reflects Amy’s style which combines, modern, vintage, southern and ‘beachy’ items in an open and clean manner.
As you look through the photos (below) you will see how in every room the lighting fixtures, furnishings, rugs, and decor even though differing in style, work together perfectly. Amy uses that same esthetic in staging the Resort Resale’s three showrooms here in Santa Rosa Beach, FL.
Amy is very careful in what she allows into the store. Each piece has to be approved by her in order to worked onto one of the showroom floors. Many of the items are popular brands including Ethan Allen, Anthropology, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Lee Industries and more. “We also regularly get in one of a kind custom designed furniture and decor as well as our huge collection of artwork.” Amy continues, “And I always tell people, if you see something you like you’d better buy it today because odds are it won’t be here tomorrow!”
