If spacious porches, white columns and shuttered windows are what classic farmhouses are made of then Cindi McCloud's home in Brookhaven, MS certainly fits the bill. However, Cindi has added her own twist on the traditional farmhouse ideal with a combination of chippy furniture and ornate pieces, sumptuous materials and animal skin rugs and lots of greenery.
This elegant space exudes comfort and relaxation and thoughts of sunny afternoons alongside the backyard pool. The interior of the home is bright and airy. Its lofty ceilings and collection of reflective surfaces, mirrors, chandeliers and glass-topped tables reflect natural light throughout the home.
There is certainly no lack of detail in the home's woodwork and architecture as can be seen in the decorative corbels, crown molding and antique mantle in the great room. These aspects and many more are why the McCloud home in the heart of Mississippi deserve to take front page in an issue of Southern Living.
Glass and wood double doors provide access to this Southern home's classic interior.
The dining room features a stately table accented by a low-hung iron chandelier.
An antique cabinet has been allowed to remain in its original worn-out state in the home's breakfast nook.
In the great room, an antique settee has been upholstered in velvet and accessorized with blue and white pillows.
The original fireplace surround remains untouched by paint that allows the color of the wood to shine through.
A four-poster bed dressed with textural white linens creates a restful retreat for the home's owners.
