Southeast Tastemakers & Social Media Interior Design Influencers Join House for Hope

Interior design tastemakers and social media influencers from throughout the Southeast have been selected for the Nashville area’s inaugural House for Hope Designer Show House partnering with builder, Carbine & Associates, with a goal of yielding over $100,000 for children’s charities.

Builders of the 2013 Traditional Home magazine house and the HGTV® Smart Home in Nashville, James Carbine, president of Carbine & Associates, said the home event will be one of the first of its kind in the nation and located in a new Williamson County neighborhood, Southern Preserve.

“Some of the most creative designers from a four state area are lending their time and talents to this inspirational home tour which will impact the lives of so many young people,” Carbine said. “As part of our company’s 30-year anniversary in building, rather than hosting a big party, we are pleased to be giving back to our community through the nonprofit 501(c)(3), House for Hope Foundation, and for the first time are partnering with a creative team of this caliber.”

The House for Hope Foundation was begun in 1993 by Carbine, his brother, the late Denzel Carbine, and the Carbine team. Over the years, numerous subcontractors and vendors have joined Carbine in building beautiful homes with 100% of the proceeds helping area children’s charities. This will be the first time a building team has partnered with multiple interior design creatives.

The House for Hope Designer Show House will be open for tour March 4-12, 2017 from noon to 5 p.m. daily. Tickets are $15 general admission and click here for tickets. Here’s more information on the project.
