The story behind Matt's mid-century modern bungalow is as beautiful as the home itself. "This place was built (and named) in memory of my late grandmother. I share my middle name with her (Stewart). She was the most amazing hostess and the money she left me when she passed was the seed money to get the design going on this little haven. The green leather lounge chair and ottoman sat in her home in St. Charles, Missouri for my whole life until it was passed along to me."

Matt's custom-built home is filled with vintage treasures and is the perfect creative haven for the Nashville-based musician. While he played a major role in the design and build of his home, he enlisted the help of stylist Carly Ripp to help source unique, vintage decor and tie everything together to make this space a home.
