Moving from the music room to the open living and dining spaces, the bold, inviting colors are balanced by a comfortable, neutral palette. From curated heirloom antiques to trendy boutique finds, the styles are effortlessly blended as Leigh bends the rules of traditional design. The singer equates her decorating methods largely to her personal style. “I feel like my house is what my closet looks like. Seventy percent neutrals and 30 percent, ‘Pow!’” she exclaims. “It doesn’t take much to make that neutral pop.” Leigh uses her favorite color—a melody of greens—as a neutral base throughout the home, which she notes feels especially welcoming and refreshing season after season.
Leigh found the wooden crosses that now hang on the dining room wall at the Nashville Flea market. The crosses were built using beams from an old Victorian house in east Tennessee that burned down. The dining room table was made from wood reclaimed from three old church pews. Leigh asked the builder, Barry Faith, to stain the table in her favorite color, green.
