See how a striking revamp of a 200-year-old farmhouse redefines 'Home Sweet Home'

A home with 200 years of history is likely to be in need of renovation. It's not hard to imagine that over time there would have been a number of changes made to the home, some positive and some not. So when Kim and her family purchased her childhood home in New Brunswick, Canada, they took it upon themselves to bring it into the 21st century.
Although their new design is definitely fresh and up-to-date, they managed to retain some of the home's original character. For instance, during the demolition process, they uncovered large, rustic beams in the ceiling. Instead of removing them, they choose to accent the beams with a tongue-and-groove pine ceiling. The kitchen was completely transformed with classic Shaker-style cabinets, quartz countertops and hardwood flooring.

The main floor features many cozy places for the family to rest and retreat. In addition, there are multiple fireplaces that keep the home warm during the Canadian winter nights.

Plenty of space and multiple closets make it possible to keep the front entrance clean and orderly.

The space above the kitchen sink, with its open shelving, creates the opportunity for a decorative display. Kim's collection of milk glass dishes takes center stage on the floating shelves.

The galley kitchen remains light and airy with white cabinetry and glossy surfaces.

A transitional space between two areas of the home is the perfect opportunity for a creative vignette.

Stripes and checks in a neutral color palette accent the home's master bedroom.

An alcove, at the base of the stairs, is just large enough to accommodate an upholstered armchair and accent table.
