I adore a rustic look but not so rustic that you feel like your living in a log cabin. When I spotted this farmhouse renovation, I immediately thought the designer had found the right balance.
An authentic Flemish longhouse, this renovation project was carried out in 2006. The owners completed the modernisation respecting the preservation of the original character of the building. The beamed ceilings, original wide timber floors and panelled wooden doors were retained. The interior design elements are a mix of materials in a neutral palette, respectful of timber without overdoing it. A wonderful chandelier is suspended above the heavy wooden table, softening the look of this area. A single pewter bowl of fruit is all that is required for a clean look. Contemporary furniture and lighting in the living area, allow for a spacious appearance. The bedroom and bathroom are minimalist with a contemporary bed and lighting.
Overall this lovely farm house exudes a spacious, uncluttered look... a most peaceful domain don't you think?
