Jack Thomasson, HGTV house planner, says I’ve spent some time in Nashville and I think it’s a really cool town. It’s got a great lifestyle here and everyone knows the music scene.
The house, nestled inside the Duncanwood Reserve neighborhood, was built over the summer by Carbine & Associates, a local building group located in Cool Springs, and was designed by local architect Preston Shea. Developer Micah Walker said that he was in complete disbelief when he first got the call to build an HGTV Smart Home in his neighborhood.
Murfreesboro-based Audio House designed all of the technology in the home, which consists of state of the art oven and stove, motorized shades, a remote control toilet, a 120-inch projection screen, home gym, flat-screen TVS in just about every room including the master bath, and the latest ADT security system.
The home was also designed to reflect the aspects that make living in middle Tennessee so great. Much of the art that hangs from the walls is by local Nashville artists, which reflect the historic culture of Tennessee as well as the diversity of its local art community. Interior designer Kelly Grakulski said that although the house is about as modern as you can get, she still wanted whoever lived there to feel like it was still a traditional Tennessee home. She says, we went with a very traditional color pallet and we wanted to keep that feel throughout the house. And also just the clean layering of patterns you see a lot of right now … and really just kind of pumped it up with a lot of intense color.
