This stunning pool house has been designed by interior designer firm Jamie Beckwith in Nashville, Tennessee. In addition to being an interior designer and creating her product line, Jamie has a showroom in Nashville where she has curated design products that are unique, beautiful and innovative. The pool house was designed on the grounds of her own house which is a Gothic-style estate, as a place for her out-of-town guests to stay and as an entertaining area for family barbeques and hosting charity events.
Beckwith used the pool house as an opportunity to experiment with innovative ideas that she had contrived as well as incorporating unique products that she has designed. The house is chalk full of unexpected textures, which includes wood tile flooring, murals, travertine walls and furnishings and rugs that can withstand three young children and guests that are damp from a dip in the pool. The interiors feature Gothic touches which are inspired by the main house, which is a more traditional Gothic style. The pool house has been more modernized with touches of Gothic mixed with cleaner lines.
The fireplace wall is surfaced with travertine stone, sleek and contemporary but warm at the same time.
The vibrant yellow kitchen counters are 3-Form Chroma in Marigold Yellow, a resin that is under-lit, found here.
This unique and sculptural light fixture in the kitchen is Cicatrices De Luxe 5 Pendant Light, found here.
Most of the fabrics used throughout the pool house are indoor/outdoor, so guests keep their wet bathing suits on when they sit on the furnishings. The flooring is an epoxy, impervious to scratches and staining.
The floor is covered with an ivory patched-cowhide rug that can take abuse from wet feet, perfect for a pool house.
This mosaic wall is made from western red cedar called “Projection,” it’s another product that Jamie created for her collection.
Large-scale artwork was selected for their graphic nature and to add bold punches of yellow throughout as well as to match the proportions of the large walls and open floor plan.
Jamie turned to sunny yellow in the otherwise mostly neutral palette.
This staircase continues the Gothic style with a solid wood railing that incorporates dramatic spires. The circles under the hand rail and the custom acrylic light adds modern touches to this traditional style.
The wine cellar was designed so that it could be viewed from above, so all details had to look good from every viewing angle. The wood had to be finished from above and lighting wiring had to be tucked away. The glass floor has a retractable screen when not entertaining to minimize light exposure on the wine.
A maximum of 2,000 bottles can be stored in these futuristic Gothic arches, composed of acrylic and illuminated by LED lighting. The material used on the floor is called Mosaic, a patterned wood block that is finished after installation.
This nook just off the wine cellar is used mainly as a cozy spot for wine tastings.
A private guest lounge is located upstairs.
This large bathroom is on the main level with the living area and kitchen, perfect for rinsing off after a swim.
The bathtub is solid walnut with birdseye maple inlay trim, another of Jamie’s creations. The tub is inspired by luxury wooden yachts, made entirely of wood and sanded with several layers of polyurethane for a shiny, smooth finish.
The stunning arboreal walls in the bathroom were hand-painted by a Nashville artist.
