See how one couple has transformed their farmhouse into a restful retreat

Renee and Charles have a passion for historical homes and all things reclaimed and repurposed. This love of history, combined with Renee's natural talent for farmhouse decor, has made for a truly stunning home. A wrap-around porch offers shade during those hot southern days. As well, the home's neutral exterior, accented by black shutter and front door, allows the architecture to speak for itself. Once inside the home continues with a relaxed color scheme of grays, whites and natural tones. Each room contains a combination of new and antique finds that create the feel that the home's decor has been cultivated over time.
A few items, like the custom hutch in the dining room are handcrafted by Renee and her husband. One of the lasting impressions received from the home is its simple elegance and welcoming atmosphere. And while this sense comes from the way in which the home has been decorated, it also surely comes from the lifestyle of the homeowners themselves.
