Tour this classic Southern farmhouse

Anyone perusing Instagram for inspirational farmhouse decor is bound to find what they are looking for in short order. In particular, many homes in the American South appear to have a corner on the market, including that of self-described 'Decorating Addict', Jessica.
From start to finish Jessica's two-storey farmhouse is perfectly put together. The design is centered around a natural color palette of brown, white and cream that allows the home's many architectural charms to shine through. Beginning in the entrance thick white trim and decorative paneling embellishes the ceilings and walls. Rich hardwood flooring in a russet hue expands into each room, including the kitchen, to create a cohesive foundation.

At the front of the home, adjacent to the front door, is the formal dining room. A classic farmhouse table sits at its center and in addition to the matching bench, four wicker chairs provide seating for six. Down the hall sits the kitchen with its classic white cabinetry and granite countertops. The kitchen island accommodates a sink, room for kitchen prep and bar seating at the opposite end. From here the space opens up to an eat-in dining area and then into the family room where are stone fireplace sets the stage for comfort and warmth.
