Country Living Makeover: How Holly Williams Turned a Run-Down Home Into the Farmhouse of Your Dreams

See how singer-songwriter Holly Williams turned an 1820s Kentucky charmer into a glorified country home.


Holly Williams was on a mission to save tired old Tennessee farmhouses one click at a time. In between juggling three children (Stella June, Lillie Mae, and Arlo); performing and writing songs; overseeing three, soon to be four, locations of her beloved housewares shop, White’s Mercantile; as well as curating clothing at her Nashville boutique, H. Audrey, the Music City multitasker has spent the last four years pointing, clicking, buying, and then rehabbing Craigslist finds all over the Volunteer State. “I feel a huge sense of urgency,” says Holly. “I’m worried that if I don’t buy these properties and help them, they’re going to get torn down.”
