Designer Ray Booth and TV executive John Shea build a boldly sophisticated house on a spectacular site overlooking Nashville
An artwork by Terry Winters overlooks the Nashville, Tennessee, living room of interior designer Ray Booth and television executive John Shea. Roust, one of their two Siamese cats, strikes a noble pose next to a Minotti chaise longue. A Christophe Delcourt floor lamp and a Robert Lighton side table flank the sofa, also by Minotti; the carpet is by Stephanie Odegard Collection.
A Sirmos light fixture crowns the entrance hall, which is paved with stone tile from Paris Ceramics.
Shea (left) and Booth in the pool lounge, where a pair of Lee Industries armchairs slipcovered in a Sunbrella canvas join a teak-top table by Terry Hunziker for Sutherland; the lanterns are by RH.
In the kitchen, Roman Thomas pendant lights are installed above the Ray Booth–designed island, Ann Sacks tile was used for the backsplash, the sink fittings are by Kohler, and the stools are by BDDW; a painting by Louise Crandell surmounts the bar cabinet, at left, which was devised by Booth and is clad in an Edelman leather.
Chaise longues cushioned with a Sunbrella fabric are positioned next to the pool.
Mounted above the master suite’s fireplace are a work by Eric Blum and an Alison Berger sconce for Holly Hunt; the bed is upholstered in a Jim Thompson fabric, the Paola Lenti circular ottoman is from DDC, and the carpet is by Tufenkian.
An upper terrace boasts breathtaking views.
