Nothing tugs on my heart strings like a charming farmhouse that exudes beauty through its simplicity. It is, and will always be, my favorite type of house. Utilitarian in nature for the type of life the farmer leads, you won’t find fancy and elegant things. But what you will find is a peaceful beauty in everyday elements that are both functional and appealing. With great excitement I bring you Farmhouse 5540 … perhaps the best example of a blogger’s home that showcases traditional farmhouse style!
Here we see a corner of the kitchen and dining space. Megan embraces neutrals and natural woods … always a perfect pairing! Touches of black help ground the kitchen and dining space.
Megan’s kitchen opens up into their family room, proving that older farmhouses aren’t just a warren of small rooms. Megan and her husband have put a lot of work into this beautiful home. I’m totally in love with the rustic wooden floors!
Not only are the floors rich and warm, but the ceilings have a charm all their own in Megan’s family room. Did you notice the charming light fixture and the beautiful bead board in this space?
Megan shares my love of white ironstone as evidenced in her dining room. One thing I love about older farmhouses is the big windows that let in plenty of natural sunlight.
Moving into the bedrooms, Megan keeps the neutral color scheme providing an element of cohesiveness in her decorating. I love when your eye flows easily from room to room like it does here in Megan’s home.
Most farmhouses don’t have closets because back in the day, real estate taxes were based on the number of rooms and closets were considered a room. Megan’s home has plenty of cupboards and built-ins to meet the challenge of storage space in an older home.
Her son’s room adds a bit of color suited perfectly for a young boy. A charming quilt graces the foot of the bed while a ticking stripe comforter and grain sack pillow emphasize the appeal of farmhouse living.
So many wonderful details in Megan’s charming farmhouse! Just stepping onto her porch gives you the thrill of what awaits inside. Megan stays true to the period style of her home in each and every room. She has such a knack for bringing it all together and her love for home and family is evidenced throughout. Be sure to visit her blog at Farmhouse 5540 for additional inspiration!
