Today’s beautiful historic Texas farmhouse might look familiar to you. It was lovingly restored by Tim Cuppett Architects of Austin, Texas and appeared in a 2012 issue of Country Living magazine. I have CL magazines that go back that far; I should look through them to see if I can find this home feature. It’s a classic Texas ranch with a spacious porch and a stunning yet quaint interior.
The expansive porch boasts a collection of painted rocking chairs, perfect for enjoying a lazy summer evening with friends and family. The porch is long enough to include a table at the far end where a game of cards or an intimate dinner can be enjoyed.
Pages of fall leaves create simple artwork above the antique hutch residing in the entry way. A pair of vases in slightly different shades of green sprout branches from the yard.
This photo is the one I remember the most when this Texas farmhouse was featured in Country Living. The owners transformed the entry hall into a dining room. Clever idea!
The living room wears dark-painted shiplap walls. A modern chair is paired with a simple sofa and an oriental rug.
On the other end of the room is the fireplace with a cozy seating area. What do you think of dark walls like this in the living room?
Rather than modernize the kitchen, this Texas farmhouse keeps its historic appeal with a utilitarian kitchen. A red stove takes center stage on the left while a collection of pots and pans provide artwork on the far wall.
A rolling ladder makes dishes easily accessible on open shelves in the kitchen. The white dishes look so pretty against their green backdrop and the black door adds a bit of sophistication.
A rustic desk creates a cozy office space. I love the painted wood ceiling and paneled walls.
A beautiful claw foot tub graces the small bathroom with its wall of windows and porthole mirror. Normally I prefer dark wood floors, but I really like the pale wood in this space.
A blanket chest at the foot of the bed gives the homeowners a place to keep vintage quilts and other bedding. An antique light fixture overhead adds a bit of whimsy to this Texas farmhouse bedroom.
Another bedroom showcases a Scandinavian style painted daybed that a furry friend has claimed as his own.
You’ll find even more charm outside with a small back porch shaded by a large tree.
