WELCOME TO MARCH, WHERE OPPORTUNITIES SEEM UNLIMITED WITH THE INTRODUCTION TO SPRING. It’s the season of transitioning from cold to warm, from short days to longer ones, from hibernation to awakening, from bud to bloom. Personally, I love the possibilities of springtime. I envision being able to actually put into action many of the things I dreamed of over the winter, when the weather was prohibitive and the sunlight was limited. With this in mind, our team has put together an exciting home-centric edition with lots of ideas to implement in your home this month. If our homes are where we sleep, eat and spend time with loved ones, they deserve to be front and center in our spring kickoff issue. The March issue is all about making your home comfortable, functional and custom to you. We’re highlighting architecture, style and overall living environment for all home types in the Franklin community.  With springtime upon us, there’s no better time for a fresh look at things related

Feeling Right at Home OWNERS CHRIS AND ERICA RAINS SHARE HOW THEY CREATED A HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Franklin Lifestyle | March 2019


CHEF CHRIS RAINS MET HIS WIFE, ERICA, 10 YEARS AGO. Shortly after, they founded The Chef & I. What started as a private chef service grew into a large-scale catering division, and within five years, the two opened their first restaurant in Lenox Village. They've recently opened their second Chef & I location in  the Gulch. CEO Erica Rains shares their story.   YOUR WEBSITE SAYS, “WHEN YOU MEET THEM, ASK THEM TO SHARE THEIR STORY. IT'S ONE FOR THE BOOKS...” SO, TELL US YOUR STORY!  The Chef & I is a love story. Eleven years ago, Chris and I met on eHarmony. We  were each other’s second chance at love. We talked on the phone like teenagers for a week and then met in person at a Titans game. When I saw him, I knew and ran to him and jumped in his arms. I’m still there, in his arms, in love. At the time, Chris was the executive chef for Levy Restaurants at the Sommet Center, feeding  everyone in hockey from the players to the fans …as well as a host of stars who  performed at what is now Bridgestone Arena. On my end, education and a career  in media/marketing/business helped create what would become the perfect  team: The Chef & I!  We grew from doing one to two events in a month to doing 400 off-site events in 2017.  We built our catering business, which opened in April 2008, mere months after  we met and fell in love. We just knew  and never looked back  and never gave up.  In 2012, we had grown enough to be able to build a restaurant and did so in Lenox Village near Brentwood. Five years later, we opened the Gulch location. We still share our story of love and our journey with patrons as they eat and laugh, and it makes our hearts CONTINUED >

Outside of the physical space of Avenida Cool Springs, there is the resident enrichment program called Five to Thrive, which is derived from a study on aging done by the Mayo Clinic. Five  key areas have been determined to have a direct impact

“ T h e Av e n i da L i f e p r o g r a m i s t h o u g h t f u l ly p u t to g e t h e r to s u p p o rt h e a lt h y ag i n g w h i l e h av i n g f u n . ”

on healthy aging: Life Activity, Material Security, Physical and Functional Fitness, Cognitive Efficacy and Social Resources. The AvenidaLife program is thoughtfully put together to support healthy aging while having fun. There is access to support groups, vocational  opportunities, intergenerational activities, creative arts, fitness classes, financial planning and more. At Avenida, becoming part of the community will be easy. Instead of worrying about personal home maintenance and the other things aging brings like nutritional, financial, housing and health care needs,  the focus  will be making the most of the next phase of life. Engaging in social events, intellectual quests, creative  undertakings and physical activity can promote a happier, healthier and longer life all while remaining in the beloved Franklin community.

warning signs of teen drug or alcohol use

According to the Center on Addiction, 9 out of 10 people who develop substance problems started using before they turned 18. Since more and more kids are experimenting with alcohol and drugs at an early age, the mental health and addiction professionals at Rogers Behavioral Health emphasize the importance of recognizing the signs of substance use. 7 warning signs that a teenager may be using drugs or alcohol • Changes in personality or behavior such as more irritability, including aggressive or violent outbursts • A decrease in grades at school • A change in friends or withdrawing from friends and family • Less interest in activities and lower motivation overall • Physical symptoms such as bloodshot or dilated eyes, weight loss, poor hygiene, unexplained nosebleeds or shakiness • Finding drugs or paraphernalia in a child’s room • A family history of substance use

Substance use and dual diagnosis treatment for teens “It is crucial we recognize how underlying mental health issues contribute to substance use disorders, how substance use impacts mental health conditions, and that we treat them in an integrated manner,” says Dr. Sean LeNoue, a child/adolescent, adult, and addiction psychiatrist at Rogers. A new outpatient, dual diagnosis program for teens, and another for adults, is also now available at Rogers’ Nashville location. To learn how Rogers can help a teens struggling with addiction, call 615760-3990 or rogersbh.org.

RENOVATE & REFINE

From Window Washing to HGTV

RSU CONTRACTORS’ BATHROOM REMODELS

ARTICLE SHIFAY CHEUNG | PHOTOGRAPHY PROVIDED

IN 1982, AS A STUDENT AT MTSU, MARK WILLIAMS STARTED A SMALL GIG WASHING  WINDOWS AND DOING ODD JOBS. Fast forward to today, and he’s grown what started as his small enterprise  into one of the largest remodeling  companies in the U.S., RSU Contractors. Their services  have been featured on HGTV’s Property Brothers with remodels in the Franklin and Brentwood areas. Recently, RSU has partnered with Ellen Sherwood Design. Their showroom in Cool Springs showcases stone, cabinetry and tile. RSU staff can consult with clients at the showroom, and Ellen Sherwood staff offers free design services in the selection of materials.

Bathroom #1 RSU designer Melissa Plank and sales manager John Stafford say bathrooms with white subway tile, glass and clean lines have been popular for a few years and, in the past two years, clients have been  asking for bathtubs contained within the shower.  It gives space-saving functionality with no need to worry about splashing on the floor after your bath. This remodeled bathroom was featured on Property Brothers. 40

Bathroom #2 The second bathroom uses shower tiles that have a retro look,

like an Edwardian style. Melissa and John say that many tile designs are inspired by classic looks of bygone years. The freestanding bathtub looks more compact because it’s not fixed to a wall, although it can hold the standard amount of water. Being

freestanding, it makes the floor and room appear bigger.

Bathroom #3 Melissa and John say some clients choose to extend their showers by getting rid of their bathtubs. A different look is achieved in this shower by using tiles with a subtle splash of color within them. Seven out of 10 clients opt to get a full or corner bench for their enlarged showers, depending on space. A necessary feature that clients repeatedly ask for is a niche to hold their shampoo. March 2019 | Franklin Lifestyle
