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.
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.
