Peek inside and see how a Minnesota family is living the farmhouse life

What do you do when you find yourself falling in love with farmhouse design but are living in a bustling urban center? You make lemonade...or maybe some sweet tea and begin creating your own rustic residence right where you live. Located in Minneapolis, MN, Creekwood Hill is a newly-built home designed by its owner and interior decorator, Lea.
She and her family are passionate about living the farm life in the city, and their new home is a testament to that simple, down-home life. The bright, white walls and gleaming hardwood floors provide the foundation for the uncluttered design.

The kitchen continues the white color scheme with cabinets, backsplash, and countertops of the same color. A touch of shiplap references that much-loved, 'Fixer Upper' style. Even the laundry room with its vintage-inspired flooring and farmhouse sink feels as though it could be found in a big old farmhouse deep in the country. Simply put, this classic home is proof that you can life the simple life anywhere you choose.

Light and bright is the theme in this farmhouse kitchen. Everything, including the countertops, is designed to reflect the natural available via the large kitchen windows.

Just off the kitchen is a cozy dining nook and a softly curved table with coordinating chairs.

In the bathroom a pretty vintage cabinet adds depth and character while providing a place to display accessories and decor.
