For the first time in its history, the O’More Designer Show House is in Nashville rather than the Franklin area, where the college of design is located. Previously held in the spring, this year’s event was moved to fall and features the talents of 18 interior designers in the 4,015-square-foot house, located in the new neighborhood of Você on Granny White Pike.
Você is built on the property of the late country music star, Eddy Arnold, who insisted that anything constructed on his land be sustainable. Therefore, the neighborhood practices “dark sky” lighting, recycles construction waste and uses native materials.
Architect Carson Looney of Looney, Ricks and Kiss designed the house to provide solutions to the emerging desire for ample room to spread out and entertain, yet in a more intimate space. The first-floor is centered around a spacious family room and kitchen that creates more space for everyday living and entertaining. A beautifully appointed dining room is adjacent to the kitchen and draws its design from the natural elements visible from the large windows on the front of the house that is in contrast to recent paint trends. A powder room, screened porch, guest suite, library, scullery, friends’ entrance and gallery, and laundry room are also on the first level.
The treetop master bedroom and a second guest on-suite bedroom are on the second floor and are accessible by an elevator or stairs.
The house is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. now through November 12. Tickets are $20. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit omoreshowhouse.com/
