House Beautiful Whole Home Concept House 2019 Up Close: The Music Room

ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE is honored to be among the design partners and sponsors who contributed to House Beautiful’s 2019 Whole Home Concept House in Nashville, Tennessee. Built by Castle Homes in partnership with House Beautiful and Wellness Within Your Walls and powered by LG Electronics, the 6,201-square-foot home brings together the visions of the nation’s top designers. Proceeds from tours of the home benefit the Nashville Symphony’s free music education programming, so if you’re in the area, stop by! The house is open for tours daily from October 18 through November 3.

Follow our blog over the next five weeks as we deep dive into each of the rooms that feature our grilles and custom metalwork. First up: the music room.

The Designer: Forbes + Masters

The Task: Transform the space above the garage into a music room with chill vibes

House Beautiful Whole Home Concept House Music Room Seating

The Inspiration: 1970s listening lounge. Nashville is Music City, so Tavia Forbes and Monet Masters of Forbes + Masters drew upon the local energy and filled the space with inviting seating, instruments for impromptu jam sessions, and a well-curated vinyl collection.
