I recently had the pleasure of interviewing dear design pal Jonathan Savage for Peachy Magazine. We spent a lovely afternoon in his gorgeous Nashville home discussing everything from our favorite designers and artists to dream vacations and and precious pooches.

I have been around design my entire life as the son of a home builder. My mother claims I have been rearranging furniture and scracthing up her hardwood floors since I was a young child!
Travel. I am constantly taking pictures and then review my images whenever I am in need of inspiration.
I have to think and ponder and come around to a concept that works for the client and for me and then I run with it. I have a big love for fabrics and pull many before making selections.
I have been working to create many more custom pieces of furniture for clients and find that its very rewarding!
I believe the day I received the prototype of the labels for my linen line it definitely put a smile on my face.
Currently I am working on a few different projects one being a pied a terre in NYC and a large family home in Nashville. Both fun but yet very different.
Since introducing my linen line September of 13 I have yet to expand the collection but will be adding new styles and colors within three months…after that who knows!
I would say I want to be remembered for being kind first of all but being a hard worker is very important to me.
Network, network, network and travel as often as possible.
Right now I have a big respect for Jean Louis Deniot from Paris, I think he is classic with an edge.
Not sure I have a certain person in mind but I will say that location I am shooting to work in is Dubai.
Visiting the Pyramids is high on my list!
Being with my dog Artie relaxing in my bed with my favorite Christian Tortu candle burning.
I am anti-clutter so anything I collect needs to be functional. I collect Richard Ginori’s “Palmetto” china and Orbix Hot Glass pitchers which are perfect for entertaining (available through Taigan).
I have always had a thing for orange. I think it can work with many styles of interiors and looks fresh in all seasons.
I think of window treatments as bangs…you do not want them to cover the eyes and block the view. I always make sure to never have the window treatments cover up any of the glass blocking the view. I also love wallpapering ceilings.
I cannot pick just one song, but I love anything by Dolly Parton and Lady Gaga!
Nashville is a city full of characters…delightful, creative, soulful characters that add a unique flavor to the charming Southern city. In early December, our Peachy editorial team made a scouting trip to Nashville featured in our latest issue. From rising country singers to established entrepreneurs, the latest issue details the stories of the people that make up this wonderful eclectic community. I was thrilled to write about my dear friend Jonathan Savage for the interiors feature. Not only did he entertain us in his own stunning home, but he also introduced us to many of Nashville’s brightest talents. Consider him our honorary “Guest Editor” for this issue!
