“I love the PT Barnum quote: ‘no one ever made a difference by being like everyone else.’ That speaks to my approach, but I also think it speaks to the uniqueness of my clients and their drive to do something in their professional lives that sets them apart and creates the possibilities for making beautiful houses.”
This home is nestled on a shady Cumberland Mountain hillside and has superb views of Norris Lake. A project for a client with whom he has worked many times, Todd renovated and expanded the residence as a weekend destination. Yet, since the family moved in, they are so content there that they rarely leave. The stylish interior design brings modern and traditional elements together for a pleasing luxury that exemplifies what Todd’s firm does best. High gloss finishes and sleek furnishings meet rustic horizontal board siding and a wood-beamed coffered ceiling in the living room. Playful barley-twist spindles on the new stair and custom millwork throughout lend character while the plaid rug running the length of the stair hall and library is both homey and chic against the wood plank flooring. Shades of green and elements that reinforce the outdoors and waterside setting abound from landscapes and hunting scenes on fabrics and artwork to the yacht-inspired cabinetry in the kitchen. The bedrooms are sumptuous or whimsical and designed to delight.
