Imagine a classic white farmhouse set on 15+ acres of rich Tennessee soil surrounded by lush trees bearing peaches, plums, and apples. Sounds perfect, doesn't it? In fact, this dream is a reality for one family searching for a simpler life and a quiet location to raise their children. The focal point of the grounds is an impressive Victorian farmhouse that Terrica Joy and her husband lovingly renovated shortly after purchase. White walls and natural materials speak to the bohemian inclinations of the home's inhabitants, and their impeccable style.
While simplistic design is at the heart of the home's layout and decor, it is opulent in its use of space and time-honored architectural details. This is farmhouse design in its natural element, accented by lots of pretty florals, a smattering of richly-colored barnyard animals and clear, blue skies.
Rustic flooding shelves provide decorative space for the display of glassware and pretty kitchen items.
The white kitchen and surrounding space remains interesting and textural with the addition of coffered ceilings, Subway tiles and warm wood flooring.
A curved doorway inset by glass allows natural light to fill the open-concept kitchen and dining room.
Banquet seating provides additional room for family and friends around the square wood dining table.
One of the benefits of living in the country is that you can place your bathtub in front a large open window, without fear of others looking in.
The master bedroom with its row of light-giving windows and cozy fireplace make this a room that would be difficult to leave.
