Franklin is one of our favorite Tennessee towns. We didn't think it was possible to love Franklin more than we already do, but this week, we found a reason. This Middle Tennessee community is now home to the first House For Hope Designer Show House. And what a house it is! The show house is a gorgeous modern farmhouse style filled with inspiring design ideas from porches to kitchens and every nook in between. It's open from March 4-12, 2017, so grab a few friends and plan your trip now.

Built by Carbine & Associates to celebrate their 30th anniversary of home building, the House For Hope home is located in Franklin's new Southern Preserve neighborhood. It's a show house after our own hearts because, when the home is sold, the organizers will donate over $100,000 to ten local children's charities, including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee and the area Make-A-Wish Foundation.

This Tennessee farmhouse is filled with inspired styles from forward-thinking designers and tastemakers. Plus, there are three porches to fawn over. Three! Sign us up. The home's builders and designers have created something really special. All total, the 17 designers from four states have poured their creative talents into the space, and it is sure to be a showstopper. If you visit, be sure to take notes. There are more than a few farmhouse design ideas you'll fall for (and want to incorporate into your own home).

Tickets for the show house (which is open from noon to 5 p.m. daily from March 4 to 12) are $15 and can be purchased online. Admission is free for kids ages 12 and under. The show house is located at 2045 Lewisburg Pike in Franklin, Tennessee, and you can also explore it on Instagram at @carbineandassociates and #HouseForHopeTN.
