Natural transitions

Walking into Teresa Shepherd’s home during the fall is an almost seamless transition. Teresa, the sole decorator of her 7,500-square-foot home, uses varying shades of green in almost every room, accented by pops of crimson, garnet and gold. Her goal was to make every room “flow.”

“I love green,” Teresa says. “That’s probably my favorite color, and it’s probably one of the easiest colors (to work with) on the color wheel because each shade goes with each other and they all work in nature. It’s like you’re pulling the outside in.”

Teresa and David Shepherd have been residents of Hoover since 1986, but they moved to their current home in Riverchase in November 1998.

They built it from the ground up, working closely with their builder to come up with the floor plan. They also handpicked everything from the cherry kitchen cabinets to the beveled glass front door.
