Step Inside an Enchanting Colorful Farmhouse with Vibrant Hues and Rustic Charm

Raise your hand if you’re ready for some color! Today’s colorful farmhouse by Elizabeth Drake is sure to whet your whistle for whatever color might be your favorite. Love red? This house has you covered! Crave green? You’ll love the dining room. Anyone for blue or yellow? This house has those hues equally represented. So let’s get on with this exciting tour!

The entryway is perhaps the most neutral room in the house, but a picture on the far wall hints at the color that’s ahead as you wander through the home. A whimsical Abe Lincoln pays tribute to the home’s location in Illinois. I think the table has such a cool vibe and the crows – they’re always hanging out in the cornfields of Illinois.

Step into the living room and be washed in a tasteful mix of color and pattern. The green and white club chairs have a nubby and interesting texture. Buffalo check pillows are a classic on the red couch. And how about the floral shaped ottoman? The vaulted ceiling and stone fireplace add texture and drama to this truly inviting space.

The kitchen features a fabulous, buttery yellow cabinet. Don’t you just love it? This view provides a peek at the green buffalo check in the breakfast nook.

Not only does this colorful farmhouse have a lovely palette, it enjoys yet another fireplace in the dining nook. Flow blue China is displayed above the mantel, while a red-striped rug and patterned pillows add another color dimension against the green cabinetry and bead board wall.

Across from the fireplace in the dining nook is an adorable settee in the same shade of green as the buffalo check wallpaper and painted cabinet/bookshelf. A pretty tree poster sets it all off.

The main dining room features a unique light fixture above a large table with black, Windsor chairs. The light is giving me inspiration for my own dining room. I haven’t been able to make a decision for a light fixture yet. I love the pale green and white rug that gives a nod to a quilt pattern. And the simple farm painting adds the right touch of color pizazz, not to mention the pretty sunflowers.

The family room marries more color together in a peaceful, not chaotic, way. The chandelier is the same as the adjoining dining room’s light fixture, creating cohesiveness. But note that the rugs are different. I wish I had more confidence to make these types of daring choices that work so well.

Adding more beauty to this colorful farmhouse is an classic country cabinet in blue and coral.

Who’s a fan of red? It’s the main color for this charming and spacious laundry room. I think this would make a great kitchen design, too. Here’s another example of something I wouldn’t attempt, but it works. The stone floor with red cabinets and whimsical wallpaper is unexpected but I love the look.

The powder room enjoys a tan and red color scheme with a fun and dramatic wallpaper pattern.

Love this airy porch with amazing views outside. I’d start my day every morning in here with my coffee and a fire in the fireplace on chilly days. The red and soft blue pillows echo the same hues found in the fireplace stonework.

A vaulted wood ceiling graces the master bedroom, allowing for a tall, dramatic fireplace. Remember the buffalo checks from the living room and dining nook? You’ll find them again in this bedroom but in a lavender hue at the windows. Pale yellow coats the walls and is always a great complement to lavender, which you’ll see in the chairs and bedding.

Here’s a view of the outside of today’s beautifully, colorful home. Even outside, the house displays a bold red siding to replicate a barn in a farm field.

I hope you enjoyed today’s colorful farmhouse by Elizabeth Drake. I’ve found so many ideas as I work to transition my home from neutrals to colors, which started with my bedroom. What I learned most is to be a bit bolder in my choices and to not be afraid of taking small risks here and there. What did you like best about today’s home?

  1. I could never pull this off but I love it. Different styles, wood types and tones, paint colors, fabrics and patterns, and it all works together. To me it’s somewhat casual but classy. Kind of eclectic farmhouse lol. I loved all of it. It is all interesting but not too busy or overdone. I would never think to use the wallpaper used in the laundry room (or any room for that matter lol) but it brightens the whole room up and looks great with that red shade. I wish I was an interior designer lol.

  2. What a happy house! I couldn’t help but smile at every room.
    I love the lavender quilt on the bed with that soft yellow paint..and the settee in green..I saved that one in hopes I remember when I change my kitchen bench I have now. That one looks more comfy and the bolsters are too cute.
