Exclusive: Inside the Dramatic Makeover of Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus' L.A. Home

When I was first invited to meet Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus for a walk-through of their L.A. home I wasn't sure what to expect. First of all, I was starstruck at the thought of meeting rock 'n' roll royalty (they've been together for 25 years), and secondly, I was excited to hear that Tish (who co-manages her two daughters Miley and Noah—I'm sure you've heard of them) was about to venture into interior design and wanted to chat through some of her ideas with me. What a huge honor. 

Tish graciously showed me through every room in the 4000-square-foot Spanish hacienda-style house—which was a rock 'n' roll glam, traditional fusion with a Moroccan vibe thrown in—and outlined all of the changes she was going to make. Originally built in the 1930s, the house had good bones and architectural detailing that Tish wanted to keep intact, but she agreed that the styling was in desperate need of a makeover. After sharing her ideas with me and going over the plans, I left the southern California home and Tish got to work.

And she didn't waste time. In a few short months, Tish completely redesigned the four-bedroom four-bathroom home including an extensive renovation of the kitchen—it went from dark and moody to white and bright. Today, I'm thrilled to share the exclusive before and after photos along with style notes from Tish on what she did in each room. You'll be amazed at the transformation. Looks like Tish can add interior designer to her résumé now.
