At Home with Amber Ulmer in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee

Art Print/Schoolhouse.

Hey, friends! We’re so excited to share Amber Ulmer’s gorgeous Nashville home with you. Amber photographs many of the room tours you’ve seen on ABM, including Elsie’s kitchen, master bathroom, Nova’s playroom (and more!), so we’re thrilled to get a tour of her space today.Light Fixture/Lucent Lightshop.“We live in a sweet 1960’s spilt-level home in a quiet neighborhood in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, just outside of Nashville. We happen to live across the street from my in-laws, and it’s actually a magical experience. The kids walk across to pick fruit and veggies in Mimi and Papa’s garden and we have babysitters right across the street.

We have a wonderfully large sectional that fits us all and our dogs for movie nights and all the cuddles. I love the big windows that let all the beautiful light flood into our space. Our record player is in there as well and the kids love thumbing through all the vintage story records we’ve collected. They will put on Robin Hood or Cinderella and act out the scenes and dance around. It’s the greatest to watch! And obviously all my precious plants make me so happy in this room.

“A few of my favorite items in our home are our green velvet couch from Article, my collection of brass trinkets, my Goodwill score of a wicker chair, and all my plants. The Article green velvet couch is the most comfy couch in all the land! It’s my napping couch. It’s luxurious, but oh so cozy too—the perfect combo for a sofa, if you ask me. Everyone that comes over wants to come and get cozy on it. It’s so inviting. My mother used to collect brass items like candlestick holders, bookends, and the like. I started a few years ago. I am still on the hunt for the same little brass partridge family my mother used to have.

Record Player/Amazon.

“The vintage wicker chair was the best score! $19 at Goodwill! Talk about a steal! So that sits next to our record player and I love it. And all my plants. Gosh, they just bring so much life in each room! It’s probably the biggest collection of anything I have. I will forever be that crazy plant lady.

“We have lived in our home for nine years now. It’s been wonderful being so close to family and we live on an acre, so there is so much room for the kids to play and our dogs to run. It’s definitely matured with us through the years as far as its styling goes. I feel that the styling now fits the era of the home and don’t see it changing much more at all, except for some updates that we hope to make in the coming years to the kitchen and bathroom.”

Thanks so much for sharing, Amber! You can find more of Amber via By The Ulmers and on Instagram.

It’s funny how much joy the little things bring and seeing the same chair in your post made me appreciate it and the sentimental value it carries even more.
