Fall 2019

Stephanie Nolan of Distinctive Interiors, had the privilege of designing for one of Pro Sports most recognizable figures, NFL Celebrity, Terry Bradshaw and his lovely wife Tammy for their FL home.

This project published locally in Spring 2019 Home & Design Suncoast Magazine; is an expression of the Bradshaw's style of "Mediterranean & Ranch".   Article to be published nationally in Florida Home & Design's Fall 2019 national edition.

Tammy Bradshaw said she wanted a home that reflected the Mediterranean
architecture but also embodied some “Ranch” styling.   It is well know that the Bradshaw’s have one of the best showplace ranches in the state of Oklahoma. We played up to the home’s Mediterranean style but branded at hints of the ranch feel through fabrics, patterns and furnishings.  Terry likes bright colors and he especially likes yellows & blues, so we decided to use gold and teal for the color palette.

Stephanie flew to Dallas to personally shop with Tammy to make sure we could obtain solid hand-carved, hand-chiseled pieces with the ranch detailing that the Bradshaws love.  As well as choose pieces that were comfortable and scaled appropriately for Terry.

A wonderful project and an honor to be chosen to provide design services for such wonderful client!!!

Chosen by luxury builder, Stock DevelopmentStephanie Nolan was hired to quickly turn a "spec" home in Lakewood Ranch Country Club East into a model in just 6 weeks!

Since the majority of home's finishes were already selected and neutral, Stephanie decided to do a "Modern Glamour" look with lots of metal finishes, monochromatic colors and a touch of "sparkle" in each room.  

The home received rave reviews and even with a "fast-track" schedule was very successful.

Winner: 21st Century “Farmhouse” in Laurel Park

Stephanie Nolan of Distinctive Interiors, in collaboration with celebrity designer Thom Filicia.

A bold cobalt-blue wall sets the theme for this cozy master bedroom in a brand-new farmhouse-style home in downtown Sarasota’s Laurel Park. 


Designer Stephanie Nolan, in collaboration with Thom Filicia of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy (who was brought into the project by home builder David Weekley Homes), cooled down the blue with a tufted white upholstered bed from the Thom Filicia Collection by Vanguard Furniture. The wood-plank floor, white tongue-and-groove ceiling and metal touches complete the farmhouse elements. “I wanted to convey that this is a Sarasota home and brought in a lot of coastal colors,” says Nolan. “Thom’s approach is very modern, and that’s evident in the shapes and lines of his furnishings. He is always on the edge, coming up with new ideas that are reflected within his collections.”
