As the picture above indicates, Michelle of the Instagram account Our Cape Farm Charm fell in love with her two-story charmer at first sight. While she and her husband were smitten enough to purchase it and move, they agreed that some changes needed to be made. Among those changes were a number of projects that added that much-loved farmhouse appeal seen on HGTV these days.
A serene color palette of white, cream and warm wood tones creates the foundation for the home's decor. Additional materials such as beadboard, hardwood flooring and wood paneling add texture and interest as you travel throughout the home.
The use of a cohesive color palette also creates visual space, making each room feel just a little larger and the ceilings a little taller. This is a trick often used by designers when working in smaller homes, and with a little intention when it comes to choosing materials, textiles and finishes, any homeowner can make her own home feel more spacious.
With all this being said, the best part of Michelle's home is its welcoming feel and family atmosphere. If you take a look at her IG account, you're sure to see the charm in this quaint cape home.
