Supermodel Lily Aldridge and rockstar Caleb Followill created their dream home in Nashville to settle down in Followill’s home state of Tennessee. When designing the home, Aldridge told the designers that her vision was a mixture of the English countryside and Moroccan influences. The result is a cozy, unique home that they share with their young daughter.
This home is a great example of creating a space that is uniquely yours. English and Moroccan design may sound very different from each other, but it’s that contrast that made such an inspiring space. Every room in the home has its own personality yet they flow together beautifully. It’s one of those homes that you can imagine feeling comfortable in as soon as you step through the front door.
Here is an inspiring tour of the home courtesy of Architectural Digest.

The most timeless pairing of all is black and white. Personally, it’s one of my favorite color palettes to decorate with because of its chic, classic look. It works in any space but today, I’m focusing on black and white dining rooms. There is something about a black and white dining room that makes it extra special. They can be glamorous like a five-star restaurant, charming like a Parisian bistro or minimalist like a mid-century modern hangout.
There are many directions in which to take it while still capturing a chic vibe. That’s one of the best parts about decorating with black and white. It’s hard to go wrong with this palette, especially in a dining room.
Here are 10 inspiring examples of black and white dining rooms to give you some idea of the possibilities.
