Franklin designers arrange posh show home

Posted: Updated:

Top-notch interior designers have put the finishing touches on a show home visitors can tour this month in Franklin for decorating ideas, all while supporting the O'More College of Design.

All 14 rooms in the 4,000-square-foot Shingle-style cottage are designed by O'More graduates, including Deb Tallent.

"The design is excellent, every detail. I love the colors and love how it's layered with textures and patterns," Tallent said.

The hope is visitors love it, too, and those who come to an open house or check out an upcoming feature in Traditional Home Magazine will pick up decorating tips they can use at home.

"They want to see what's on trend and the colors, how to put things together and even how to arrange furniture and hang things on the wall. A lot of readers go through with a magnifying glass to pick out all the little details," said Amy Elbert, with Traditional Home Magazine.

Your budget and style doesn't have to match the show home. It's just about ideas. You might say yes to the stain glass but no to the wall paper of robins and chickadees.

"It also shows personality, which is what a home is all about. It's the people who live there," Elbert said.

In all, 17 O'More alumni designed the house, which opens with a preview party Thursday night, then stays open to the public for the next two weeks.

Tickets are $20, and all proceeds support the O'More College of Design.
