With a focus on pieces that will withstand the test of time, she has honed that same appreciation into buying and selling fine European antiques for more than 30 years.

Meet The Team
Growing up in a family filled with artists, there was no question Eliza would choose a creative career path. She was drawing floor plans and rearranging furniture by the age of five. After graduating from the University of Georgia with a BFA in Interior Design, she and her cat, Luna, moved to Nashville. Rooted in the philosophy that design = form + function, it is her goal to make all things both functional and beautiful for her clients. Eliza likes to spend her free time baking, reading, and exploring Nashville.

Shannon attributes her appreciation for art and design to her grandmother, who collected antique pieces and painted. This interest lead her to graduate from Auburn University with her BA in Studio Art and a Marketing Minor. Shannon has always been passionate about supporting small businesses and connecting with her community. During her free time, you can find her painting, playing with her Boykin Spaniel, or catching up on the latest Royal Family news.
Rachel credits her love of historic architecture and design to her father, who was also a graduate of the design program at Southern Illinois University. She loves bringing a client vision to life through personal expression and detail, focusing specifically on a positive client experience. Rachel enjoys spending her free time with her husband renovating their home, playing with their two golden retrievers and exploring the city with friends.
Hannah graduated from Auburn University in 2015 with a degree in Hospitality Management. After graduation, she moved to DC where she planned events for top tier clientele, including Smithsonian, US Olympic Committee and the Embassy of Switzerland. She moved to Nashville in 2018 and continued her career in events with a focus in design. Her passion is in the details and building strong and lasting relationships. When she isn’t working, she’s finding new restaurants to eat with her husband, Alex, or taking her goldendoodle to the dog park.
Rebecca’s passion for interior design started early, as she accompanied her mother and grandmother on their antiquing ventures, and attending historic tours of homes. This led her to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Interior Design from the Watkins College of Art and Design. Since then, she has worked in both the design and construction industry, and continues to find awe in the process of breathing new life into a tired or forgotten space. When she isn’t immersed in design, she enjoys reading, writing, gardening, and spending time with her family.
