Meet 'lived-in luxury' in an 1870s farmhouse where elegance is king

Take a moment to consider the first things that come to mind when envisioning a country farmhouse. It likely isn't a far stretch to guess that you are thinking of shiplap, butcher block countertops, hardwood floors and a whole lot of decorative roosters. Well, it's time to rethink farmhouse living and step into the home behind the IG account and blog, Wynn and Roo.
Wynn and Roo was titled after something very close to Kate Parkhill's heart, her beloved dogs, Wynn, a rescue cattle dog and Roo, her adorable golden retriever. Therefore, you are likely to see a plethora of pictures of her furry friends in addition to her elegant farmhouse. This 1870s Pennsylvanian home features a design style that accents its historical charm while adding an air of "lived-in luxury". Kate beautifully juxtaposes rustic elements like a wooden farmhouse table with upholstered dining chairs embellished with nailhead details. The kitchen is another example of this with its custom cabinetry and sleek stone countertops balanced against an antique tile backsplash. The thoughtful design of Kate's home is the ideal illustration of graceful farmhouse living.
