I have a few things working away to show you – the next phase of the driveway is finishing up, and I’m still trying to figure out storage in the laundry area, but in the meantime, I went on a cool house tour and wanted to share some of the details I enjoyed the most!
Castle Homes and Wade Weissmann Architecture have built a home to benefit the Nashville Symphony in Forest Hills, and it opens to the public TODAY! They invited Â Julie Couch, Mark Simmons Interiors and Rozanne Jackson from The Iron Gate to designÂ the interiors, and I got a sneak peek! For more photos of the rooms in their entirety, go HERE.
As we entered the home, we were asked to remove shoes or wear booties since there were some expensive rugs in the home, some in the $40k range. I really loved this one in the kitchen…
One of the first things I noticed is the sheer scale of every room in the house. 5500 sf with tall ceilings make the entire house seem incredibly spacious.
I didn’t take a photo of the island in full, so here it is via today’s Style Blueprint piece.

I really loved these boxy, soft club chairs.
Art in the master bath….
The art that stuck with me the most was the series of brass flowers by Tommy Mitchell. Â So delicate and just completely beautiful.
I also enjoyed seeing Julie Couch mix it up by upholstering the traditional settee in white cowhide. Clever and easy to clean!
And the chandy by Oly is a stunner.Finally, the gravel patio beyond the back porch was covered in a material I was not familiar with, birds-eye gravel. It has the same color as pea gravel, but smaller stones with sharper edges. It looks great.
The best part?
There will be an “after the tour” sale!! June 29th from 10am-2pm so if you see something you like, you will be able to buy it! Â Go and check it out, so the Symphony can stay in the black and keep bringing our community great music. Tickets can be purchased HERE.
