High ceilings and windows set the tone for this historic transitional space, which marries period-appropriate finishes with updated details. Original hardwood flooring was refinished, adding patina and charm that’s set off by a rustic-look, farmhouse-style island with a functional and stylish soapstone top. A neutral palette ensures the kitchen feels open and bright.
Designers wanted to create a bright, open look in this kitchen, so they brought in white cabinets grounded by gray countertops. For a pop of color, they decided to paint the island a light gray color. Then, they added a Neolith marble countertop to the island which, along with black matte fixtures and an apron front sink, combines the farmhouse feel with the industrial touch.
Futuristic upholstered arm chairs, farmhouse style black Windsor chairs and traditional upholstered nail head trim chairs add variety to the dining room seating. “I used three completely different kinds of chairs in pairs at the dining table to add a little personality, charm, and to tie it into Asheville which is all about individualism,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
This stunning dining room is anchored by a farmhouse table and chairs reminiscent of midcentury modern design. Black and white wallpaper and a rug are the can't-be-missed design elements in the room, and the color scheme is echoed in the window treatment, light fixture and chairs. Botanicals and antler horns bring nature indoors, and the red tray and table add a punch of color.
New hardwood floors, white cabinets and stainless steel appliances are simple solutions to the overbearing green-and-red color scheme that once plagued this kitchen from HGTV's Cousins Undercover. A large farmhouse sink makes cleaning up easier, and new shelves provide an open alternative to the closed-in cabinets.
This bathroom gets more of a vintage feel with pedestal sinks and wood walls. It is tucked into the upper level of a farmhouse and was designed by Michelle Fries. She made up for the lost under-sink storage by using open shelving with baskets to hold supplies.

A large window floods the kitchen with natural light highlighting the white fixtures for a bright and shining look. A kitchen island with white leather bar chairs creates an eat-in area opposite the stove top and stainless steel range hood. A stainless steel farmhouse sink fits the sleek design of the room and works well with the modern look of the white cabinets.
If you can't afford a new farmhouse-style table, the same look can be achieved by mixing salvaged pieces to create your own table. Find an old tabletop, then add old or new spindle legs. If you paint the table and other outdoor furniture all white, it creates a modern and sleek look, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta.
A favorite kitchen element is a farmhouse sink with a window just above. If you're going to be cooking or doing dishes, why not have a beautiful view in sight? This lovely space is also defined by its custom refrigerator, which matches the white cabinets perfectly. High cabinets are ideal for storing infrequently used pots and pans, and the simple black backsplash behind the range adds an understated punch of contrast.
The homeowners wanted an open, airy space with modern and rustic touches, so designers brought in a modern take on the farmhouse table and a matching bench. On the other side of the table, three modern chairs add seating to the table bathed in natural light. For a bit of fun, designers had a turquoise accent wall painted and some fun art hung on it.
The island in this country kitchen is multi-functional. Its size gives the homeowners more storage with the cabinets underneath. The island also houses the dishwasher, a double farmhouse sink and a place to store cookbooks. As if that weren't enough, the kitchen island also gives the family a casual eating option-a breakfast bar-for a quick meal or as extra seating for larger gatherings.

Elegant white subway tile and cabinets and gray quartzite countertops balance the rusticity of the space.
If you can't keep the pets off the furniture, opt for durable and neutral upholstery that hides pet hair. Here, a golden retriever enjoys a nap on the London sofa from R. Jones. An orange and green quilt adds a touch of country charm to the farmhouse living room.
