The farmhouse style home is all the rage right now, made famous by Chip and Joanna on HGTV's show 'Fixer Upper'.

I just had the opportunity to design a farmhouse style house from the blueprints up, and then stage it. What a fun experience and may I say I want this house!

It has elements of rustic but with modern and chic mixed in. A warm and cozy home for sure. I want to share the photos with you so if you also are a huge fan of 'Fixer Upper' like I am,  you may enjoy these.

So do you see why I had a blast designing and staging this one??   If you love this style but are not able to buy this property, just know you don't need a farmhouse style home to incorporate the look into your space. Stayed tuned to my next post on how to bring some of that farmhouse charm into your own home!
