Lonny magazine just gave a photo tour of Nashville fashion designer Savannah Yarborough’s downtown loft, and unsurprisingly, the brain behind AtelierSavas has a super-stylish space, filled with bold colors and cool vintage pieces.
What I really liked about the tour, though: Yarborough’s decor offered a lot of tips on delineating space in an open loft (or, just an open-layout) home). From crafty use of bookshelves and plantlife to simply defining “rooms” with furniture and rug placement, her choices manage to make a cavernous space feel defined, cozy and welcoming.
Anyone with a taste for eclecticism in home decor or a love of classic, open loft style will enjoy it — take a look at Lonny’s home tour with AtelierSavas’ Savannah Yarborough here.
And if exploring Yarborough’s place gets you inspired to own a Nashville loft of your own, look below — I picked out a few Nashville lofts for sale from the MLS, all of which are brimming with creative potential.

When a homebuyer who really wants a classic loft reaches out to me, the first place I think of, generally, is Werthan Lofts in Germantown. It’s the quintessential loft trove in Nashville — a historic mill turned into a loft community, in a vibrant, walkable neighborhood. In Wethan lofts, you’ll find original floors, exposed brick and concrete, big beams, crazy high ceilings, large windows, open spaces… And community perks abound too, including a pool and fitness center.

For plenty of us, a loft isn’t a loft without exposed brick. This unit in The Exchange downtown doesn’t skimp on that front — so much warmth and character throughout its 864 square feet, with a wide open main space, windows that stretch to the high ceilings, and as much exposed brick as any loft lover could want.

Historic building? Check. Rugged industrial finishes? Check. Perks of downtown Nashville living? Check — blocks from Broadway, the Ryman, Ascend Amphitheater and lots more. The Kress Lofts in the historic Arcade offer picture-perfect loft living, and this unit, with 2 beds and 2 baths, makes it easy to either bunk up with a significant other or loft mate, and enjoy the openness when wanted, break off for privacy when needed.

On the more sleek and upscale side, West End Lofts near Vanderbilt take the industrial appeal of loft living (concrete floors, exposed ductwork, high ceilings) and polish things into a more luxurious vibe. It’s not for everyone — a lot of loft hunters really love rough edges — but for homebuyers who like the airy feel of a loft but also love high-end condo design, this penthouse could be a perfect fit.
Any of these available loft spaces catch your eye? Have something else in mind? Whatever kind of new Middle Tennessee home you might be looking for, I can help — just call or email TJ Anderson Homes, and tell me about your wish list.
