The Iron Gate

The Iron Gate is a decor store in Franklin Tennessee.

 Designer Rozanne Jackson is the talented owner.

The Iron gate first started as a candle store.

 Rozanne started adding decor and furniture to it as time went by.

 Clients loved her taste and design sense and a design business was formed.

 Love when that happens....

We love her sense of balance and how she adds old objects with contemporary pieces to create elegant spaces..

   Rozanne feels that a well appointed space should not feel decorated.
 Rather, it should feel like you've already been there many times when you first walk in. 
 (taken from her bio on her web-site)


Love how she used the coral in this bookcase.

We use it all the time, its a natural piece that just adds character to any style.

One of Danni's and my favorite looks is when industrial style meets country in a kitchen .
 Digging the natural wood ceiling and the white painted wood walls. Love....
We wrote a post on this style, you can read about it here.

Love this image, simple, but elegant. 

Great idea to use a large mirror to fill a space. 

Black and white can be timeless and so sophisticated.

Love how her photographer,Chris Little captured this image.

Rozanne was born with a natural talent. Natural talent can not be taught, it is something we inherit.  There are so many talented designers with and without an education. You can be taught how to draw, measure a floor plan or how to use a computer but, you can not be taught good taste.
Rozanne also has a blog, to visit The Iron gate go here.

  4. There is something I love in every photo - that does not always happen. A lot of unique pieces as well. She has a great eye.
    All best,

  5. I know The Iron Gate well in fact you've shown a few pictures with my pillows they purchased from my busniess in the third and fifth pictures. I llvoe when people have such natural talent all these rooms are wonderful.


  6. Beautiful work, I love their clean, edited look.

  7. I love the wonderful mix: from faux bois to beaded crystal to white slipcovers....brilliantly done!

  8. So pretty. Was this her home or rooms in her store? I love the black and white living room. Very nice that she found her way into something she's so clearly talented at.

  9. I like her philosophy on design. The mirrors are gorgeous and i like her simple and non cluttered approach.

  10. Looks like an amazing shop....and she has wonderful style. I too love a long full length mirror in a room, it has such impact. And that mix of styles in a kitchen works every time, beautiful!

  12. I would LOVE to visit her shop and plan on doing that when we go to Nashville soon! You are so right…a lot can be taught but good taste is definitely something you are born with! I would love any and all advice from her! Thanks for sharing this!

  13. I love birdcages ... I don't really know why, I don't really like birds ... but that large round birdcage ... fabulous!! Love these images and "meeting" new folks! xo

  14. I have had that bedroom picture with the beautiful painting on my files for ages but didn't know who the designer was. I 'm so excited to see more of her work. She has wonderful style. X Sharon

  27. I have just fallen in love with this woman and her wonderful style. Wish I lived a bit closer to Tennessee. And, what you said about talent and style, as well as elegance, is an inherent capability...you really cannot learn it. Great post !

  28. the kitchen lanterns,
    the painted floors, and the birdcage are just great!!

  29. She has great taste, no doubt about that! I love the charming kitchen and of course that birdcage! I also enjoyed the way she styled those shelves!

    Thanks for the introduction!

  32. I mentioned this post on my post about slipcovers today...thanks so much!

  33. I have been thinking of implementing an iron gate to my home. I need one that is at least ten feet tall. That way it is unlikely that anyone will try to climb it. I just want people to stay out of my yard.
