Establishment neighborhood
SB
3912 Hillsboro Circle, Green Hills
This past summer, local interior designer Sarah Bartholomew opened SB in Green Hills, a leafy, residential neighborhood south of the city center. It’s a reflection of Bartholomew’s impeccable taste and her vision of what today’s classic décor should be, which often involves a mix of bold patterns and bright, floral-inspired colors. You’ll find a tightly edited selection of handmade and artisan textiles, tableware, antiques, and home accessories (like brass match strikers, vintage mercury glasses, and hand-poured candles).
Lemon Laine
1900 Eastland Ave., East Nashville
Given our loyalty to nontoxic skin care and makeup, it's only natural that we love a beauty boutique that checks off certain boxes: clean and luxurious products, transparent labeling, and a great overall message. So when Lemon Laine—a modern beauty boutique with an ethos that revolves around natural, effective, and sustainable products—opened in one of our favorite cities, we were instant fans. Owner Laura Lemon brings her decade's worth of beauty industry experience to the shop, in which she stocks some of our favorites, including Kjaer Weis, True Botanicals, and our very own goop skincare. Best yet: The design is clean with bright color—and there's an oil bar where you can mix bespoke beauty formulas to meet your specific skin needs. Photos: Caroline Sharpnack.
Draper James
2608 12th Ave. S, 12South
If you've spent any time perusing the website of Reese Witherspoon's quintessentially Southern lifestyle brand, you'll pretty much know what to expect in the store. Located on 12South, a well-known shopping area, it immediately draws you in with blue-and-white-striped awnings and perennially colorful windows. Once you make it through the shiny navy lacquered doors, you'll find bold floral prints, preppy stripes, and cheeky home goods, like their signature "Totes, Y'all" bags. It's the perfect place to pick up Southern-inspired souvenirs for friends or a cute party dress.
Col. Littleton
135 Mill St., Lynnville
Years ago, when GP spent months on set in Nashville, she happened upon a shop on a side street selling leather handcrafted goods—everything from suitcases and satchels to a leather fly swatter—made by an actual colonel by the name of Littleton in a town a few miles outside Nashville. It was and is still too good to be true. Over the years, he has gained much acclaim, and he has his own shop section in the Nashville Country Music Hall of Fame. It's a true Tennessee original.
