Purple farmhouse? Yes, this historic farmhouse wears a shade of purple on the outside, as well as a dash of the color on the inside too. But what’s truly amazing about this home is its blend of old and new. If you love historic architecture but crave modern conveniences, this is the house for you!
The kitchen has warm, honey-toned, wide plank wood floors made from original ceiling boards. Hand-planed cabinetry and old-fashioned hardware give a nod to the historic age of this charming Massachusetts farmhouse.
The mudroom wears some of the purple coloring that you’ll see dotted throughout the home. I’m envious of this space with ample storage – not something you generally see in older houses.
The family room is bright and airy with plenty of natural light. The same honey-toned floors add an element of warmth to the uncluttered space.
I love how the architect was able to salvage doors and use them in new places throughout the house. It gives the home integrity even though it’s been updated with modern conveniences.
The purple farmhouse has an historic fireplace with the trim painted in a similar shade as the home’s exterior. I have to admit, I love an old fireplace far more than the new ones you see today. And look at the cute vintage sheep marching across the mantel!
The vaulted bedroom is simple and clutter-free. My goal is to make my own bedroom as simplistic (yet beautiful) as this one.
Old ceiling beams were kept in the renovated bathrooms. I love that the architect paid so much attention to period details.
And here she is! The exterior of the purple farmhouse in all her glory. Simple, yet beautifully refined.
