Today I have a special treat for you. A beautiful Connecticut farmhouse by Rafe Churchill wears 4500 square feet of rich color and traditional style. Settled in the countryside, this charming home combines style with comfortable living that you just might find irresistible.
Inside the farmhouse kitchen, you’ll find cheery yellow cabinets and trim work. Dark gray tones down the bright color and clean lines create classic farmhouse style.
Open shelves, pendant lights, and a school house clock add farmhouse details to the sunny kitchen.
My grandmother had curtains on the open doorway of her living room like this. As a child I thought they were so elegant looking and was convinced my grandmother was one of the best decorators in the world.
A bit of Early Americana creeps into the living room with its wing chairs and painted built-in bookcase.
Note the unique drawers below the bookcase. They’re all the same except for a small trio.
The yellow hue from the kitchen makes its way into the large living room with its farmhouse table and captain’s chairs.
To take full advantage of the countryside views, this Connecticut farmhouse enjoys a screened porch for dining or socializing with friends and family.
At the other end of the porch are two metal day beds for napping or sleeping outside.
I hope you enjoyed touring this Connecticut farmhouse in the country. You can see more of this charming farmhouse at Houzz.
