Farmhouse Chic Hits Suburban Minneapolis!

By
Home Stager with Rooms With Style

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!

What a fantastic job you did on this project, Shar!  The house has such a great vibe that I can imagine the buyer wanting to purchase the furnishings :-)   By the I love that sign in the laundry (that's my method too!!)

Wow, what an amazing job of mixing rustic and modern.  I love it.  BTW, I'm trying to write an article on my website about shiplap.  Would it be possible to use some of your photos?  let me know.  I'm kicking myself that I haven't taken any good ones so I can write about it.
