his house is where I first met interior designer Rachel Halvorson. It was long before I knew about her incredible studio space just a few blocks from my house, but I remember quietly taking note of the attention to design detail and being a bit in awe of this talented young trendsetter. I was co-hosting an event for a Champagne partner client a couple of years ago at the home of Karen Fairchild and Jimi Westbrook and Rachel was onsite helping to fluff the setting prior to the party. The interiors already seemed perfect, but she was discovering little ways to tweak items and placement so that the end result was jaw-dropping perfection when it came time to greet the first guests. It was a magical night. As Rachelâ€™s personal space was featured on the previous pages and two of our featured Little Big Town members are her clients, it seemed only fitting to showcase just a peek of how she helped them transform an outdated home into a house worthy of a movie set. This is just one example as I have seen other homes that are hardly recognizable once sheâ€™s worked a little magic. That is definitely the case of this house, which she and the owners both lovingly call TammyWood.
