Hey, guys! I designed a living room for country singer and songwriter, Kacey Musgraves, and I am so excited to share the full tour with you today!
My first interaction with Kacey was so random but cool and worth sharing. It was a couple years ago before I moved to Nashville. I was already a fan of her music at the time. And one day I was scrolling back to my old (OLD) Instagram photos from, like, five years ago. I was looking at one photo, and I noticed some crazy comments that I had no memory of.
Scrolling through them was pretty cringe worthy. It was basically just a bunch of people critiquing my appearance (always fun!), and then I saw a comment from Kacey, defending me! I think what it said was “little people belittle people”. This was years before I ever met her, but from that moment forward, I knew I wanted to be her friend because any woman who takes on another woman’s Internet trolls is an instant friend in my book!
Fast forward, this past summer I invited Kacey and her sister, Kelly, over to my house for craft day. And after hanging out for, like, five minutes, she invited me to help her decorate her new Nashville home.
Now, I’ve never aspired to decorate other people’s homes (it’s scary!), but just this once I knew I had to take the leap because Kacey’s style is so inspiring. We have a lot of similar influences, but her style is much more western-inspired than mine—which I love so much! Long story short—I was shopping on eBay for brass horse shoes and cacti within hours. Haha!
We created a private pin board together and then sent back and forth inspiration, flea market finds and ideas for weeks and weeks. It was a dream project for me and a ton of fun. Especially when Kacey picked a pink sofa! Agh!
We created a sitting area around the fireplace and added built-in shelves on either side. I whipped up a super simple tapestry for above the fireplace (I’ll share more details on that in another post soon). We picked the biggest rug the room could fit to anchor the space, added a rustic coffee table and filled the space with plants.
The brass chandelier gives the room so much personality! You guys know I have a major soft spot for gold and brass, so I was really happy Kacey wanted to go in that direction.
Details! The shelves are filled with personal mementos with a theme of gold and pink. The horse clock was a flea market find that Kacey found in Texas. The crown is a vintage children’s costume piece I picked up in Missouri over Thanksgiving break.
Oh and, new rule! If you have a photo of Loretta Lynn kissing you on the cheek, it probably deserves to be framed in your living room. Right?
This hanging plant shelf is an ABM DIY, find it here. Isn’t that plant the cutest thing?
I felt really lucky when I found these white leather chairs with the perfect cowgirl details. Adorable.
It cannot be overstated how much I LOVE. THIS. SOFA.
It’s a pink dream.
Here’s a zoomed out view of this cozy room.
The record station is my favorite part of the room. We custom made these cactus marquee lights and displayed them above the turntable. We painted the inside of the cabinet where the records are kept pink just to add a pop of color.
I customized a U-Turn Audio turntable with tiny gold cacti for a subtle, but fun, personalization.
The orange door was an afterthought if I’m being honest. We tried a couple other things that didn’t feel quite right. Pink would have been too much pink. So we finally decided orange to tie in with the rug, and I love the pop of color it adds!
Thank you so much for reading, you guys! I’m going to embed a couple of Kacey’s songs here in case some of you haven’t heard them yet. Even though, I know from Instagram that a LOT of you are already super fans!

If you have any questions, I’d be happy to answer! Thanks for reading. xx! Elsie
this is my next project. I will probably use this theme for my bedroom…
What would you call this theme?
Hello! What would you call her style? I’m looking for key words to look at ideas for my home. I am Texas and I love a country/ Mexican modern or retro theme. I just don’t know if I’m using the right words for further exploring.
What a genius living room makeover! The designer decorated the living room so beautifully. I’m so happy to see how the designer gives details and give a perfect collaboration of designs.
I LOVE this room so much. I just have a question that I’m dying to know. I have the same EXACT tiger painting in the same exact frame and everything. I always thought my grandmother painted it because the artists initials on the bottom are JH. Anyways, do you have any information about it? My grandmother (Jacqueline Hughes) and my mother have both passed so I don’t know where it’s from. Thank you so much for your time.
I don’t know why I’m just seeing this now – geeking out! Super duper KM fan!
What a nice makeover. You have decorated everything very nicely. I am just loving the way you have placed your sofa. And the rugs at the floor is giving an amazing feel to overall home decoration.
Hello! Can you tell me what is the name of the white paint that is used here? There are soooo many options out there for white paint!

We used Marshmallow by Sherwin Williams (same as my house). xx!
Love the pink western style. It’s fabulous!
Great! I love this style of living room http://bradnailer24h.com/
Hi Elsie, where did you get your dress?
Amazing room in vintage style and this cactus-lamp, amazing 😀
What fun! I love it all. Where did you get that awesome gold horse? Did you spray paint it yourself? I have horses & would love to have something similar in our home. Thanks so much!
Beautiful! What sized cow hide pillows did you use? Also, where did you get the horseshoe hook? Thanks!
Hi!! Where is that AWESOME plant stand that is holding the cactus from?!
I was thrilled to see one of my favorite artists of ALL TIME featured on one of my favorite blogs of all time 🙂 You did a great job on this room. I love every detail.
Love love love this! Kasey is one of my all time favorites! I hope y’all continue to collaborate in the future!
The Loretta poster is amazing! Is that something Kasey already had or something y’all found?
This looks amazing! Love the white fireplace and also the mix of a pink sofa with such a printed rug. Would have never put those two together myself, but it looks so good!
I want to redo my bathroom and I found a great online tool that let’s you estimate the cost of a renovation project and calculate the return on investment for free: https://app.mykukun.com/Home-Renovation-Costs It is a really helpful tool for anyone who is thinking about renovating!
Yes! I love women who defend other women, too! (Side note: Do you follow @25park on Instagram? She is the queen of being a woman other women can count on; she rules. You would love her. Plus, she has some great style going on.)
I have loved Casey since I heard her song Follow Your Arrow. So amazing. I love how she had your back!
And I have some serious envy of that pretty star tiara/crown. So amazing! Also, loving the pictures of Casey in her pink dress and boots on her pink couch–rad. So happy you two could connect. Beautiful story! ⭐?
Where is this the pink cactus planter from?
