Embrace the simple life and bring a kick-up-your-feet, linger-a-little-longer feeling to your home.
Step inside 20 beautifully-designed homes and discover how to create the cozy and practical country vibe. This collection of classic and modern farmhouses inspires easy and comfortable living in every room. Just add rustic country charm to make your own home your favorite place to be.
An intimate look inside these homes reveals how designers blend elements of old and new and add a touch of distinctive character to every room. The house tours include:
- renovated New York farmhouse that pairs classic architecture with a fresh color palette for a hip yet historic look;
- a Virginia Colonial-style home with reclaimed floors and exposed beams
- A ranch-style Texas home built from scratch which displays old-time charm inside and out. (Think: tons of textured cozy lived-in rooms featuring aged furniture and collections of time-worn books and oiled paintings.)
Whether you are looking to renovate or simply decorate your home, upgrade your kitchen with an apron-front sink, add shiplap to your walls, or introduce flair to your living space with flea market finds, this expansive collection of farmhouses will guide and inspire you. And it makes the perfect gift for anyone who dreams of a farmhouse of their own.
