With large columns and painted siding, this idyllic farmhouse in Touisset Point, R.I. brings country charm to New England. Countless windows extend across the exterior to allow for plenty of natural light and views of the ocean.
Built in the mid-19th century, the two and one-half story residence has been restored three times — most recently in 1992. The upper level features an air-conditioned artists’ studio with oak floors and quasi-timber framing.
After a budget-friendly facelift, this Georgia farmhouse bathroom exudes French country charm with a jolt of color. Designer Michelle Mentzer painted the existing cabinet to save money, but added a new countertop with a high backsplash and curved detail on the sides. She replaced the carpet with limestone flooring and brightened the room with a vibrant red mirror, which is now flanked by shaded sconces. Instead of spending money on a linen cabinet., she placed an oversized basket on the floor to hold towels.
The kitchen actually comes with two sinks: one for meal-prep and a second for washing dishes. When matched with a large picture window and wood shelves, this space has all the fresh, farmhouse style of a project on Fixer Upper.
