Tour A Farmhouse-Inspired Family Room & Kitchen
A 17-foot addition solves a young family’s need for more light and space in their recently purchased home. See how designer and art gallery owner Alison Milne added authentic farmhouse charm to the newly built area with vintage accessories and rustic details.
The homeowners wanted a space that functioned for the entire family, where they could be in the kitchen and watch the kids doing their homework or playing. The transitional space offers just that. To achieve a comfortable cottage-like feel that still looked contemporary, Alison incorporated modern accents in addition to vintage decor. She mixed grey shaker cabinets with beadboard panelling in the kitchen, and added mesh detailing for textural interest. Wide plank floors in a natural honey color add to the farmhouse vibe, while old barnwood finishes and painted brick walls provide warmth and richness to the space.
