Wesley Stanley’s approach to this distinctive Nashville dining room captures the essence of her design firm’s moniker: Hunt + Gather. The result is a carefully curated treasure trove of traditional fixtures, hip flourishes, and old-fashioned flair that feels timeless and truly one-of-a-kind. “I am exhilarated by the thrill of the hunt and inspired by unique finds,” says Wesley. “Layers are the key. They tell your story: colors that inspire you, pieces you’ve inherited, or art you’ve collected. Your home is like a tapestry of you.”
To achieve that personal aura in Libby and Patrick Burke’s new abode, Wesley diverged from off-white walls, opting for an eye-catching backdrop. Meg Braff’s Arbour wallpaper fit the vision with sprawling steel blue branches that contrast with the crisp, clean wainscoting. Infusing a warm note of color and a lush texture, Wesley went with another daring choice for window treatments. “The combination of the dusty blue in the wallpaper and the velvet just seemed to sing together,” she says.
