Back in 2005, Holly Williams, the Nashville singer-songwriter and one of Country Living’s 100 most creative people, spent her nights playing gigs all over Nashville, trying to get a record deal. She spent her days working in a sandwich shop situated next door to a charming 1890s cottage in nearby Leiper’s Fork. More than a decade later, the cottage hit the market and Holly teamed up with friend (and Leiper’s Fork historian) Aubrey Preston to restore it to its former glory. The result: a charmingly quaint 1,200-square-foot space now available for rent through Holly’s rapidly growing White’s Mercantile brand. Take a look around at Holly’s inspiring work.

Entryway

Holly chose her favorite “neutral” for the doors: Pink Ground by Farrow & Ball.

Kitchen

The pretty chandelier, rose-colored rug, and accent wall papered in Smoky Rose by House of Hackney pretty up the practical space.

Dining Room

Holly hunted down each and every one of the vintage mirrors. “Reproductions are fine,” she says. “But I wanted everything in this house to be antique.”
