Farmhouse With Mid-Century Modern Furniture And Industrial Touches

Mon, Dec 15, 2014 | Mid-century home designs

Somewhere in New York, away from the chaos of the city, its the frenetic pace and its daily madness, there is a quiet and calm countryside that hides beautiful landscapes and cozy charming farmhouses. Today’s beautiful farmhouse is right one of these and it was built in 40’s, then it was bought and completely renovated. The original small windows of the house were replaced by large ones and the dark rooms became bright and light. The owner’s interest by mid-century modern design accomplished a stunning interior full of vintage pieces that blends the country style with an industrial touch. I love neutral colors and lots of natural wood that actually makes the house look rustic and charming.
