“For me, the creation of a place is spirituality in life. It’s where life meets soul…”
– Marcelle Guilbeau
Are you dreaming of a place that reflects the passions of the people that dwell within?
In order to create a place that gives people joy, you need to attune to the things that make them feel alive, and the things they love to do. In the home, I call this your Soul Style. In the workplace, it’s the Core Values which feed the mission. Sometimes we are lucky enough to happen upon a place that reflects our inner compass (the place has good bones or a happy vibe). But more often, we create it.

Delighted by its charming historic feel and luscious garden surrounding, Marcelle Guilbeau’s client chose this Belle Meade home as her family’s first in Nashville.

The kitchen remains the heart of the home. It’s where we gather over breakfast with kids before school or roommates before work, where we end the day with a glass of wine, and where guests inevitably hover over hors d’oeuvres at a party. We asked some of Nashville’s most talented designers, builders, handymen and architects to share some of their favorite farmhouse kitchen projects — to provide both inspiration and a little eye candy for you today.
It seems simple in theory – head to the furniture store, find a sofa that’s comfortable and that matches your décor, and you’re good to go, right? Wrong! Today we talk to Nashville interior designer Marcelle Guilbeau, who not only offers furniture selection as a service, but also has a book in the works called The Soulful Home that’s filled with advice about discovering your style and making selections for your home that reflect your authentic self.
