We stopped by just before the O’More College of Design Show opened to the public for a first look.
The Show House, which provides inspiration and insight to design enthusiasts throughout the Southeast, will be held October 19 through November 12 at Você, a new neighborhood on Granny White Pike in Brentwood. In contrast to the trend in recent years to paint houses all-white, the Show House will be completely black – setting a striking and slightly rebellious air.
See our interview with the lead designer for the project -Kimberly Kelly.

The team of designers is comprised of regional and nationally-acclaimed interior designers, many whom are alumni of O’More who will collectively bring a mix of new and traditional inspiration to the Show House.
Each designer was responsible for envisioning and executing the design for one of the 17 rooms in the 4,015-square foot house – from a porch to pantry to powder room. Among the house’s must-see features will be the treetop master bedroom, which is on the second floor and accessible by an elevator, creating more space downstairs for everyday living. Other enviable additions, including a scullery, coffee station, and library, point to the extensive detail incorporated in every inch of the house.
Here are a few photos from the home.
Você, the location of the 2017 O’More Designer Show House, is built on the property of the late country music star, Eddy Arnold, who insisted that anything constructed on his land be sustainable. The new neighborhood practices “dark sky” lighting, recycles construction waste, and uses native materials.
