Throughout, the whitewashed brick home looks fresh and current, without giving up the historic vibes. My favorite space, though, is easily the “spunky” revamped barn Tish set up for pop star/actress/The Voice coach/daughter Miley Cyrus (pictured up top), for when she’s in town from L.A. With a mix of fresh colors, warm wood and clean and bright white shiplap, it’s a guest space any grown kid would be thankful to crash in, I’d think — even one worth, oh, hundreds of millions of dollars or so.
With an otherwise muted palette, I love letting a colorful rug bring out the loud. This one’s similar to the diamond-trellis rug Tish Cyrus stuck in Miley’s barn kitchenette — pops of brightness with a relaxed pattern.
I’m still way, way here for the encaustic tile trend — from bathroom floors to backsplashes to feature walls, they can take a space from fine to fantastic. Tish’s black and white geometric backsplash tile choice really makes that small area pop. Houzz is a great place to shop for tiles like these, and the above Temara Handmade Cement Tiles would bring a similar look.
One of the few things I see a lot of agreement on in design-trend-prediction circles: Velvet’s big and sticking around in 2017, especially for seating, especially with a little Chesterfield influence. Miley’s luxurious barn couch is a perfect example. If you like the look and prefer to go new rather than vintage, you could try One Kings Lane (one of Tish’s go-to outlets), and grab something like this light velvet Coventry sofa.
Glass pendant lights
The delicate herringbone etching on the pendant lights Tish chose for Miley’s barn brings great texture to a simple fixture. I like the way the cyclone effect on these pendants from Shades of Light offers similar texture, but a slightly less delicate feel.
Acrylic coffee table
When you have a smaller living space and don’t want to close it in with a bulky coffee table, acrylic to the rescue — a piece like the one Tish chose for the barn (or this one from CB2) gives you the function while taking up a negligible amount of visual space.
Cool cabinet color
Trade trick: If you want to bring in some color but also want to make sure you don’t go overboard, try Sherwin-Williams’ Historic Collection. Figure if the tone’s stood the test of time, you can feel relatively confident you won’t regret your choice. Their Color Through The Decades selections can help you pinpoint the right colors for a historic renovation, too. For the barn, Tish went with a soft, throwback powder blue that plays with the black and white backsplash tile in a really cool way. Sherwin-Williams’ Sleepy Blue is a pretty good match for it.
by TJ AndersonI have a thing for Nashville’s classic ranchers — co
"T.J. is a top notch sales and service professional. I have bought homes in multiple states and dealt with a dozen real-tors and T.J. is the best of the bunch. I need three things from my real-tor: local knowledge, responsiveness, and honesty. T.J. is off the chart in all three areas. I follow his real-estate blog and regularly bounce market questions off of him. T.J. responded quickly and professionally to each and every question my wife and I sent his way. Ultimately T.J. talked my wife and I out of a not so good deal and advised us to wait a while before purchasing a second home (due to our situation not the market). I would not hesitate to recommend T.J. to anyone interested in Nashville real-estate. Form a first time home buyer to someone just new to the area you can't go wrong with this guy!"
