As far as supermodel–rock star couples go, Lily Aldridge and Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill have taken the road less traveled. The couple forewent Hollywood in favor of a '30s Tudor Revival home in Followill's native Nashville, which is located in close proximity to a great school district for their 6-year-old daughter, Dixie.
"Home is everything," said Aldridge, a California native, to Architectural Digest in their upcoming September issue. "We both travel a lot for work, but we do everything in our power to go in and out as fast as possible so we can have a normal life here." While the couple was initially divided as to where to settle down in the Tennessee capital, Aldridge managed to convince her husband of seven years to move into the old-fashioned home.
“It was beautiful, comfy, cozy," she continues, adding that she loved the home's "good bones": namely, the wood floors, beamed ceilings, and expansive windows. "I love those details, and they're hard to re-create." After Followill finally acquiesced, Aldridge enlisted the help of designers and close friends Louisa Pierce and Emily Ward of Pierce & Ward to transform the space into a family home.
The duo tackled the entire home in the span of just four months, during which Followill was on tour and Aldridge was traveling for modeling gigs. "When it was finished, we lit candles, put flowers everywhere, and practically pulled out as they were pulling in," says Pierce. "They haven't changed a thing."
