Charming modern farmhouse offers the perfect family getaway in Texas

Farmhouse Style Home-M Barnes Co-01-1 Kindesign

This farmhouse style home was designed for a family of six by interiors studio M. Barnes & Co., located in rural Athens, a city in Henderson County, Texas. The 4,500 square foot, four bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom residence serves as a second home for an active family who loves spending time outdoors.

This spacious home features wonderful outdoor living spaces, which also includes a pool house. The furnishings, finishes, and color palette combine to bring the outdoors in. Sturdy pine furniture and slipcovered upholstery helps to create an informal, comfortable atmosphere that can stand up to the wear and tear of an active family.

Accolades: This beautiful farmhouse was awarded the “Legacy of Design Award Winner” in 2014.

Floors of wide planked pine, salvaged brick, and stained concrete add texture and a rustic, indoor-outdoor sensibility. Soaring ceilings and lots of windows create an open, barn-like feel in the great room. Wood planking clads the ceiling in the great room and is repeated on accent walls in other rooms throughout the home. The pale blue and green colors reflect the big Texas sky and rolling grasslands of the prairie that can be seen from every window.

The flooring is concrete throughout, while the rugs are indoor-outdoor for durability. The furnishings are covered in outdoor upholstery, again, for durability.
