Elegant and Farmhouse. That almost seems like a contradiction of terms. Farmhouse is a comfortable, relaxed style whereas “elegant” conjures up images of fancy gold mirrors and other high end furnishings. But “elegant farmhouse” is how Southern Farmhouse Designs, LLC describes this Texas home renovation project of theirs. Note: this is a previously published home tour that I decided to resurrect because time got away from me – I’m working on this week’s spring home tour – coming Tuesday and Wednesday!
Today’s Texas home wears soft colors and features architectural details like wood ceiling beams and built-in bookshelves.
Rich wood floors add warmth while ample windows let natural light flow into the interior spaces.
Note how the door to the hallway mimics the arches of the French doors’ transom windows.
A farmhouse table with chunky legs makes a statement in the dining room with touches of black.
A Bible verse about breaking bread together is gracefully written on chalkboard wall art.
Glass pendant lights hang over the kitchen island while a similar glass globe pendant is suspended over the breakfast nook table in the background. The island adds plenty of counter space in this elegant farmhouse kitchen.
An impressive vent hood provides the crowning touch over the large range. A convenient coffee bar is tucked into the kitchen’s custom cabinetry painted in soft gray.
French style chairs create that elegant farmhouse look in a sitting room. Personal mementos line the built-in bookcases.
A painted stone fireplace is centered under the vaulted ceiling. You can see more mantels and fireplaces in yesterday’s post. Family photos help to personalize the living room.
