House for Hope Show House Opens in March

A modern farmhouse in the new, Franklin neighborhood, Southern Preserve, opens March 4-12 as the first House for Hope Designer Show House. The home will showcase over a dozen Southeastern design tastemakers partnering with Franklin-based builders Carbine & Associates. With the sale of the home, the premier home tour will be donating over $100,000 to area children’s charities.

Carbine president, James Carbine, said the designers from a four-state region are creating stunning interiors with fresh design ideas, new building products, appliances and three porches packed with inspiration.

“From GE’s slate appliance finish and refrigerator with a Wi-Fi, built-in Keurig coffee machine to showcasing Aurea’s quartz product throughout the home, tour visitors will be inspired by a ton of new ideas for kitchen, bathrooms and home decorating,” Carbine said. “This rock star team of design influencers have created clever spaces including a kids’ play room and adjacent game porch as well as a family game room with life size board games. Inspiring colors for the home, created with help from The Decorologist, are included in a tour lookbook or resource guide.”

The House for Hope Foundation began in 1993 by Carbine, his brother, the late Denzel Carbine, and the Carbine team. Daryl Walny, Carbine’s vice president of operations, said the impact has been significant and this year over a dozen area children’s charities will benefit upon the sale of the home.

“Over the years, numerous subcontractors and vendors have joined Carbine in building beautiful homes with 100% of the proceeds helping area children’s charities. To date, with multiple builders participating, the House for Hope 501c3 Foundation has donated almost $600,000. This will be the first time a building team has partnered with multiple interior design creatives,” Walny said.

This year’s charitable organizations which will benefit from the House For Hope Designer Show House include: Young Life Capernaum – Williamson County; Camp Will – WMCO Recreation Center; Special Olympics WMCO; Special Olympics Tennessee; Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee; Hospital Hospitality House of Nashville; Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home; Boys & Girls Club –WMCO; Boys & Girls Club – Davidson County; Saddle Up; AGAPE; GraceWorks; My Friend’s House; Narrow Gate Lodge; Waves – Early Learning; High Hopes; Make-A-Wish Foundation Middle Tennessee; Bridges Domestic Violence Center – Williamson County; Franktown Open Hearts.
