I {heart} this house | The Southern Living Idea House 2013

Every year I stalk Pinterest looking for pictures of the insanely beautiful Southern Living and Coastal Living Idea Houses. Lucky for me, this year’s SL home is located in Nashville, so I was finally able to see one of these gorg homes in person. The house is located at Fontanel – formerly the mansion of country legend Barbara Mandrell (Nashville is the country music capital, after all), now it serves as a tourist attraction and music venue. Once the SL Idea House ends it’s run, it’s set to open up as a b&b… that is of course, unless they just decide to let me live there. For free, obvi. My mom came in town and we joined my aunt and cousin for a girls’ day out at this dreamy Southern farmhouse.
