Creating a welcoming first impression is this open and bright entryway. A floral-printed rug adds a touch of color to the space, and a simple wooden bench is the perfect spot to slip on shoes before heading out for the day.
Although the home is newly built, the owners wanted it to have the charm and character of Southern homes from the 18th to early 20th centuries. To pull off that look, designers used six different types of casings and white painted millwork common to houses of that era.
Shiplap walls ensure that the entryway complements the home's farmhouse style. At the same time, a light wood staircase and floors infuse the space with warmth, while a built-in bench gives guests a place to sit.
Dutch doors have their perks; in addition to complementing the home's country setting, this one fills the foyer with fresh air and natural light. As guests walk in, they'll also pass a reclaimed wood console table and horse lamp on their way to the kitchen.
To make the home's interior look a bit more modern, the designers painted the walls a crisp white and then layered in cool, contemporary furnishings. The light wood floors bring in some warmth and complement the farmhouse aesthetic at the same time.
That chalkboard sign couldn't be more right. From the moment they walk through the front door, the owners of this home in Lehi, Utah will feel at ease thanks to bright white walls and their favorite art pieces.
The foyer of this updated farmhouse features sleek gray floor tiles and paneled walls, presenting from the very entry a juxtaposition that continues throughout the space. Once dark, dated and closed in, the house now features an open-airy floor plan with a contemporary color palette and loads of natural light. Modern furnishings blend seamlessly with period and rustic details.
This spacious entryway features a stained wood farmhouse door beneath a row of upper windows and flanked by wide sidelights. A hall tree sits next to the door near a gray Oriental rug that covers the hardwood floor.
A stone retaining wall and trimmed hedges make the entrance to this 1820s Colonial farmhouse look even more stately. As guests follow the brick walkway up to the front door, they'll be able to fully admire the double-hung windows, gabled roof and original chimneys.
