We’re putting the finishing touches on our newest Woodbine project, and as you can see above, I wasn’t afraid to go a little bold with this one. The inspiration was a classic schoolhouse, and I think the bright and welcoming red totally nails that intent.
We’ll be sharing a lot more on this gorgeous new home soon (if you don’t already follow TJ Anderson Homes on Instagram, we regularly share updates there). In the meantime, for this week's Open House roundup, I wanted to show a little love to the househunters and homeowners who, like me, get excited to go bold sometimes.
But when you really want a home to stand out — especially if the property has the stylish bones to stand up to it — sometimes going in a more interesting direction is warranted. And as for me, well, this schoolhouse red has my heart.
OK, so, first, the broader picture of Open House options this weekend:
The bold and the blue-tiful: This 4-bed, 3-bath home just a stone’s throw from Music Row and The Gulch really stands out, with that primary blue beaming against the white trim. The interior colors are a lot more toned-down, but the big personality outside adds unique curb appeal for sure. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.
1009 S 11th St S
Nashville, TN 37206
Like Woodbine homeowners, East Nashvillians generally aren’t afraid to be style-forward. So the deep red chosen for the exterior of this modern new construction home — 3 beds, 2 full and 2 half baths over 2,321 square feet — definitely suits the vibe of the community. If you’re hunting for a roof deck with big views, this one has that too. Open Sunday, 3 to 5 p.m.
Nashville, TN 37209
One of the cool things about modern architecture is that it can stand up to disparate color choices — sleek and cool like the slate gray here, or bright and intense, like the rust red in the middle. Personally, I think without that burst of brightness, these attached homes on the west side of Nashville (Sylvan Summit) would be far less visually appealing. Nice call there. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.
1125 Timber Creek Dr
Murfreesboro, TN 37128
Kudos to the designers who picked out the exterior finishes for this new home in Murfreesboro — there are so many brick homes in communities out there that look perfectly nice, but very similar, and this mossy green stands out without being out of place. Adds a nice little pop of brightness to an otherwise traditional-looking property. Open Saturday and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.
by TJ AndersonI’m intensely excited about our new Inglewood hom
"TJ was awesome! We bought and sold a house with him during the first half of 2012. He was thorough, patient and helpful. Plus he did it all with a sense of humor which we appreciated. He was great in showing us all of our options and get feedback so that he could then show us just the few gems that truly fit our needs. In the end, he found our current house 5 minutes after it went on the market. I'm positive that another realtor would have missed that, but not TJ.I would highly recommend him to anyone!"
