Breathing Space

In the rolling hills of Central Tennessee, a designer helps an organic farmer cultivate open and airy surroundings.

The challenge facing Tennessee-based interior designer Rozanne
Jackson was how to transform a humdrum house into a chic country cottage. Her client, Lauren Palmer, is a well-known organic farmer, whose seasonal vegetables and herbs are sold to top restaurants in and around Nashville.

When Palmer’s family purchased land next to their home, Bloomsbury Farm, in the rolling and fertile hills of Smyrna, they acquired an ordinary 1960s ranch house that, at first glance, appeared not to have much potential. But Palmer thought otherwise.

She knew the right person to fulfill her vision was Jackson, a longtime family friend and owner of The Iron Gate, a spacious home furnishings store in nearby Franklin, Tennessee. From the beginning, Jackson and Palmer were in sync. “The family wanted a house that was rustic, casual, and comfortable,” says Jackson. “I had a clear picture right away. There are some projects where you struggle to find out what the homeowner wants, but this was just the opposite.”
