Stylish Contemporary Living

I came across this remarkable contemporary home in the Forest Hills area of Nashville, Tennessee via Milk and Cotton.

This lovely home belongs to Jennifer and Billy Frist who, along with their architecture and interior design teams, took 18 months to renovate.

As the article brings out, “what had been a massive, unexceptional brick-and-stucco house emerged as a 17,000-square-foot modernist lantern—its buff-color Indiana-limestone exterior framing walls of glass that take in both the property’s 17 wooded acres and the glittering skyscrapers of downtown Nashville. Spurred by Jennifer, who admired the solid good looks of old local bank buildings clad in the same material, the large panels of stone give the two-story structure a sense of permanence that the last incarnation’s abundant stretches of brick failed to achieve. Best of all, the architectural reinvention better complements the Frists’ interests and social lives.”

I love the muted neutral colours that seem to flow from one room to another, the attention to detail and the sheer amount of light and play on volume that seems to occupy each room.

What do you think?
