This home is located in a historical neighborhood where timeless and classic finishes are appreciated, so designers chose to embrace that design by installing white throughout the space. From the white and gray tile backsplash to the white kitchen island, the space remains clean and classic with wood accents that bring warmth to the design.
The overall vision for this home's spaces was modern farmhouse, so designers chose a beautiful oak hardwood floor to run throughout the main areas of the house. Then, they brought in a lot of white and marble, helping to make the spaces feel timeless and classic. Finally, warmth was added to the home through gold and black accents and wood details that really brought the rustic farmhouse feel to life.

Although designers from America's Most Desperate Kitchens wanted to create an authentic looking farmhouse kitchen, they also wanted to give the homeowners lots of modern luxuries, so they combined vintage inspired features, like the mint refrigerator and mixer and large print tile floor, with modern cabinets and countertops, creating a durable, elegant space.

The breakfast bar adds seating for four at the kitchen counter. Since the kitchen and dining room are connected by the open floor plan of the home's main spaces, this breakfast bar also acts as an extension of that space as well.

This living room space was an addition to the home's original structure, and, as such, had very strange angles that designers wanted to make sense of, so they chose furniture that would help them create an organized normal room shape with a modern farmhouse design that complements the rest of the home's open concept main spaces.
The natural wood floating shelves in this space help to add warmth, but also lend themselves to the farmhouse design. These shelves give the homeowners a great place to store bowls and platters and to display unique items they have on hand.
