Home Tour: The Charming Cyrus Family Home in Nashville

Tish Cyrus, the wife of Billy Ray and mother of Miley, recently renovated their 1940s home in Nashville that has become the home base for the family. They expanded the quaint home from 1,400 square feet to 3,000, but she skillfully preserved the original charm of the home in the process. The result is a beautiful mixture of farmhouse charm with quirky, mid-century modern touches.

You can see the family’s personality in every square inch. There is rustic charm and bright, vibrant character that creates a unique environment every person in the family can enjoy. They even renovated the barn that was on the property into a guest house just for Miley. You may not think farmhouse and mid-century modern styles would work together, but they definitely do in this home.

Enjoy this inspiring home tour courtesy of Architectural Digest.

10 of the Most Chic and Desirable Celebrity Bedrooms

If you are looking for interior design inspiration, celebrity homes are some of the most fun places in which to find interesting ideas. They have access to some of the best interior designers in the world, not to mention large budgets, so it’s no surprise that their homes are often some of the most beautiful and imaginative.

Going Clean and Modern with European Cabinets

One of the biggest kitchen and bathroom trends at the moment are modern European cabinets. The smooth, sleek design is highly sought-after. These cabinets have a completely smooth facade, clean lines, and a minimalist appeal.

Within this style, there are a lot of options to choose from. You can go with a beautiful wood grain, for example, in anything from a rich cherry wood to a cool grey tone. You could also opt for a high gloss finish in white for a glamorous appeal or something more subdued like a matte grey. What you pair the cabinets with makes a difference, too. You can contrast them with a variety of styles, even farmhouse.

Here are 10 inspiring examples of modern cabinet designs.
