Lakeside Easy Living
There’s a reason why so many of us continue to fall head-over-heels for farmhouse style. Its unique take on comfort and simplicity creates an aura that could make anyone feel at home, even if they’ve never set foot on a farm.
Glass windows along the back of this home are the real show stoppers at this modern retreat as it opens up the interior completely to the view outside. You are surrounded by nature completely and it is changing sunlight through the day and the passage of seasons that provide a dynamic, colorful and hypnotic backdrop that takes you back into nature’s lap.
To give the look a more modern twist, we infused layers of comfort into the space. By balancing out the natural materials in the room with things like plush couches, comfy accent chairs, and cushioned bar stools. We also enhanced the feeling of the room by layerings items like throw pillows and blankets into the design.
Farmhouse style has been around for decades, but that doesn’t mean it has to be synonymous with grandma’s house and days gone by. With that in mind, keep an eye out for hanging barn doors, wooden mantles, iron-inspired light fixtures, and galvanized metal storage buckets. In farmhouse design, the best accents are the ones that also play a functional role, so look for pieces that serve a purpose.
