“Come HOME to ROOST” is the tag line of a new home furnishings, home accessories store in Maryville, Tennessee, that owner Paula Osborne defines as a store with a “casual flair brought to life with a distinct designer vibe.” And it’s that fresh designer vibe that welcomes you in to Roost — through the twiggy courtyard to the urban interior of a natural world you’ll want adopt for your own nest!

The Courtyard

Outside, a life-size branch dome shelters a private eating area while twig reindeer and artsy painted posts welcome you to take a closer look.  Natural vignettes team with fire pits, and all pave the way to the natural world inside.

The Colors

Robin’s egg blue teams with pale creams and tans for a restful nest, or you can select from Moroccan-like patterns to add a pop of fresh color, texture, and pattern.

The Naturals

From the designer sisals to Ikat pillows, decorator touches borrow from an international palette, but the accessories take their cues from nature.

The Crafts

Representing fine local craftsmen and artists, handmade articles pepper Roost with unique accessories — creative touches that make a house a home. Some add color.  Some add function.  Some add humor.  But all reveal the care the designers take to provide something different, something special for those who shop Roost.

The Look

Whether you need something whimsical for a Christmas present or whole-room design from floor to ceiling, you’ll be able to find unusual, handmade items that will give you a put-together look that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
