Who we're following.

Our favorite finds from Instagram - click for some daily inspiration.

While Nashville remains one of the strongest real estate markets in the country, some of our friends to the Southwest--specifically Texas--have been having some rollicking good years of late, as well.  And with strong real estate markets come great designers, builders, and, of course, real estate agents.  Among the best of the best in the great state of Texas is The Collective Residential, an independent luxury residential brokerage started recently by a couple of industry veterans.  They've launched to massive success by selling some truly gorgeous properties in the Dallas area, and a quick scan of their Instagram page can explain why--they sell amazing homes!  Follow them for some daily inspiration--of the jealousy-inducing variety!



What we're eyeing.

Our favorite finds of the moment, sure to make your house or your life, just a little better, a little prettier, or perhaps just a bit more awesome.

We know we're still in the dog days of summer here in Middle Tennesse, but we recently glanced at the calendar and realized just how soon fall will be here. And with fall in Tennessee comes a great opportunity for back porch sitting and cool nights perfect for outdoor entertaining.  You might just want a fire to go along with that entertaining, and if it isn't in the cards (or budget) to have a full-scale fireplace, maybe something like this stand-alone fireplace from Terrainmight do the trick!  We love the design, the soft industrial patina, and the price!  Plan ahead for fall, and thank us later.  See it here →



What We're Doing.

While Nashville certainly doesn't lack for entertaining options, we've sorted through the mess to give you the best way(s) to spend your precious time.

We don't get out nearly as much as we used to here at Domaine HQ--blame it on the two young kiddos we've got running the show these days--but recently we did enjoy a truly delightful brunch at East Nashville newcomer Cafe Roze.  In our opinion, this sort of laid-back-yet-sophisticated spot is exactly what Nashville needs more of!  Impeccable design, interesting and (relatively) healthy fare, and a relaxed all day concept make this a place to visit regularly--and we plan to!  See you there.  More info here →



What We're Reading.

The latest, and dare we say, the most important real estate news you need to see, curated by yours truly.

In our last newsletter, we touched on the tiny house craze that has been a much talked about trend in housing of late.  And it appears it's not just for full-time housing, as a brand new hotel concept in Lyons, Colorado proves.  Called WeeCasa, it's the nation's first hotel comprised entirely of, you guessed it, tiny houses!  Check out the feature in Forbes magazine here →



Our Featured Buyer Need.

You're what we've always been looking for.  Or, at least your house is!  Can you help us and our buyers with their current needs?

As you may have heard, inventory in Nashville housing is still incredibly low and we have buyers who are ready to write an offer.  If you're thinking of selling your home, we want to hear from you!
