10 Reasons to Tour O’More Designer Show House

For the first time in its history, O’More Designer Show House is in Nashville (O’More College of Design is located in Franklin, Tennessee) and open for public tours October 19 – November 12, 2017. It was my hope to tour the Show House with media on opening day this year; and although that wasn’t possible, these exclusive photos by the talented, Brennan Smith make me want to hightail it to Nashville asap.

O’More Designer Show House provides inspiration and insight to design enthusiasts throughout the Southeast and located within Você, a new neighborhood on Granny White Pike. Departing from the trend in recent years to paint houses all-white, the Show House is painted completely black – setting a striking and slightly rebellious air. The house also will provide solutions to the emerging desire among home buyers to live in an intimate space, while still having ample room to entertain.

“We could not be more thrilled with the interior designers who have agreed to contribute their talent and time to this year’s Show House.” ~ Shari Fox (O’More President)

The Show House showcases the work of 18 designers plus that of O’More’s amazing students, who had the opportunity to serve as apprentices to the designers who imagined and developed their rooms.

    I would feel bad for somebody with the initials O.C.D.!!!
    Pretty things, though. The “friend’s entry” is intriguing.

      So intriguing! I think the monogram reflects O’More College of Design, but since OCD is a daily reality for so many good souls, why not be transparent!?! 🙂
