Home Tour: The Nashville Home of Kings of Leon’s Nathan Followill

To hear designer Benjamin Vandiver describe the home of Nathan Followill and his wife Jessie Baylin—also a talented musician and songwriter whose album Dark Place will be released on April 7—you would think the couple had spent years searching for the perfect abode. Yet Followill had never actually seen the house before making an offer. Baylin sent him poor-quality cell phone photos and was still able to convince the Kings of Leon percussionist this was the house.

Set on a lush piece of land, which affords views from practically every square foot, the sprawling home never feels pretentious or precious. Instead, the interiors have a comfortable, accessible vibe, even if they’re outfitted with enviable vintage finds that the couple selected on many shopping trips with Vandiver. Originally built in the 1970s by famed architect Robert Anderson, the five-bedroom house was more recently remodeled by Nashville architect Steve Durden. By thoughtfully combining midcentury furniture, comfortable textiles, and a heavy dose a whimsy, Vandiver created a comfortable home for the musical couple and their young daughter, Violet.
