Perfecting the Homefront: Charming Home Tour

Chip and Joanna Gaines, along with their show Fixer Upper, are helping to promote the popularity of farmhouse style. Clean lines, white backgrounds, and utilitarian items are often found in farmhouses across the country. The style is simple and functional, and today’s charming home tour showcases the appeal of the iconic farmhouse. Take a step inside Karen’s beautiful home at Perfecting the Homefront.

Vintage theater seats greet you when you step inside the door, while a pair of tobacco baskets perch on a small shelf up above.

Farmhouse Entryway


Overstuffed, slip-covered furniture provides comfy seating in the living room.  Shiplap walls display a large world map and simply adorned windows let in plenty of natural light. This space feels inviting and happy.

Farmhouse Style Living Room


Karen’s farmhouse style kitchen is equally light and bright.

White Kitchen in Farmhouse Style


A built-in desk makes a great place for meal planning or working on a laptop.

A beautiful chandelier suspends above an industrial style table in Karen’s dining room. A plaid throw acts as a fall tablecloth and adds warmth to the room along with a textured rug underfoot. I love how Karen keeps her window treatments simple.

Farmhouse Style Dining Room


A classic metal bed takes up residence in Karen’s master bedroom. A trio of botanical prints grace the shiplap wall above the bed while plenty of textiles soften the room.

Farmhouse Style Master Bedroom


Pretty baskets create artwork above the metal bed in the guest bedroom. White bedding keeps the room light, airy, and restful.

Guest Bedroom


Karen and her family enjoy a charming outdoor living space with string lights that create cozy appeal well into the evening.

Outdoor Patio


Since it’s Christmas, I thought I’d share Karen’s pair of Christmas trees ready for the holiday. Take note of all those vintage books on the shelf above! Be sure to see Karen’s Christmas home tour.
