Ohio Farmhouse Revival That I Love!

Country Living is one of my  favorite magazines of all time! We own, as you know by now, a historic colonial and live in such a fantastically quaint  historic area! I just fell in love with this farmhouse restoration below in Ohio featured in Country Living!  It reminds me of home. There is a simplistic, crisp and modern flare that works so well together, it is inspiring! I hope it does the same for you!

These great cabinets are painted a sober charcoal grey (Ralph Lauren's Surrey). Classic marble emphasizes the utility of the Viking range.

I love the french doors that make the outdoors seem like part of the inside. The sisal rug and upholstery keep the feel more casual.

This fabulous dark paint (Ralph Lauren's Grange Hall) really distinguishes this space. Like Kevin the owner, try not to use no less than three and no more than five paint colors in the similar tones to create a flow through out a smaller home.

Dark ebony stained floors are consistent throughout also to create flow.

Salvaged doors and the original claw foot tub add that historic charm but they don't all have to match in the home.

Classic white paint is the perfect choice for the outside!
