I stumbled across a home tour online last week, and I just *had* to share it here today in case you haven’t seen it. John and Nancy Davis found their early-1900s farmhouse in McKinney, Texas, they saw the potential right away. Here’s a photo of the exterior before they personalized it…
…and here’s what it looks like now!
I especially love the stonework, bright white paint and metal roof!
And what a treat to be able to see what they’ve done on the inside too:
I really love all the wood. The contrast between the brown and white is so pretty, and the fact that it’s all authentically old gives the whole place a super comfortable vibe. You can just tell there isn’t a surface in the whole house that you can “mess up”. Any new wear-and-tear would just add to the already awesome textures and tones.
The sink area in the bathroom is one of my favorite things:
The wide planks on the wall, the beams that hold up the clawfoot tub, the table, the round mirror, the wall sconces, the dark wood ceiling, the stool next to the tub, the tone of the floor, the pop of green next to the sink, the muted colors and pattern of the rug…color me SMITTEN! 😀
Here are some more photos that were featured in Country Living magazine:
There are so many things in each photo that I am inspired by, and I think I’m going to start trying to capture that “time worn with a twist” feeling more around here. It speaks to me so much!
What about you? I’d love to hear what you love about this sweet farmhouse too!
