Country Girl Miley Cyrus Buys $5.8M Tennessee Mansion

Miley Cyrus might be singing about ‘Malibu,’ but she’s done buying houses there. The Disney-actress-turned-pop-star just picked up a new $5.8-million pad in Franklin, TN.

This is Cyrus’ first home purchase in her birth state, but she’s been on a shopping spree in California over the past couple of years. In 2015, she bought a horse ranch in Hidden Hills, and 2016 called for a Malibu bungalow.

The latest addition to Miley’s collection is a sprawling 5-bed, 6-bath manse nestled on 33+ acres.

The home boasts classic Southern features including a wraparound porch and a screened-in sun room (with an indoor porch swing!). Inside the 6,869-square-foot estate, hardwood floors, a soaring stone fireplace, red brick accents and vintage exposed beams contribute to a rustic vibe.

A pool and mini-golf course dominate the fenced-in backyard. If you’re not taking a dip in the pool, then the yard is really best experienced from a second-story deck that sits atop the sun room and overlooks the property’s private 33 acres.

This home purchase comes hot on the heels of Miley’s announcement that she’s releasing a new album — one that many are speculating might be a return to her country roots. While a home purchase is hardly definitive proof, it is another signal for fans anxiously anticipating her next move.

Transition Your Home from Summer to Fall


Ready or not…fall will be here before you know it. Time to turn over a new leaf with a summer-into-fall home makeover. With a few simple tweaks and a couple of tasteful touches, you can embrace the beauty of the season in style—without spending hardly anything at all.

Greet the Season with a Festive Fall Wreath

Nothing says season’s greetings like a fall wreath for the front door. And what an invitation to get creative. Pinterest is loaded with DIY fall wreath ideas, from faux foliage to the real thing.

Cooler temps and shorter days are drawing us back to the nest. It’s only natural that soft candlelight makes the atmosphere that much cozier. Of course, if you have small children or pets, consider playing it on the safe side this season with flameless candles.

Bring the Great Outdoors In

This fall, let nature be your guide. Embrace the bounty of the season by bringing fall’s rich, robust hues and rustic elements into your home. Be it a vase of mums, a bowl of pears or apples or a sprig of twigs. Come fall, decorative inspiration is right outside your door.

Layer Cool Colors & Cozy Warmth

Talk about instant gratification. Layering on the texture and tone is such an easy, economical way to bring warmth and seasonal color into your home. Fuzzy flokati toss pillows are just the ticket come fall—as are throws...lots of them…in shades ranging from scarlet red and burnt orange, to bronze, gold, copper and jewel tones.

Fall in Love with Aromatherapy

There’s nothing like the smell of fall in the air, so here’s a scent-sational idea: fall aromatherapy. Among the easy ways to give your home aromatic magic are scented candles, oil diffusers and stovetop simmers. We love DIY scented pinecones because they smell amazing and couldn’t be easier to make.

How to make your scented pinecones:

-Lay washed pinecones on a foil-lined baking sheet and pop them in the oven at 200F for about 30 minutes.

-Once cooled, put the pinecones in a gallon Ziploc bag and sprinkle with your favorite fall-fresh essential oils (such as cinnamon, apple, orange, nutmeg). Give the bag a good shake.

-Set the bag with pinecones aside for one to two weeks to allow the scent to set.
It’s as easy as that!
