Megan Steele is the eye behind @steele.eclectic.farmhouse, where she details her family's Texas hill country farmhouse. Steele is also a co-owner of ReDid, an eclectic farmhouse store offering vintage home and garden furnishings. When she isn't curating the shop, Steele is designing her home with the same careful selection and hunting for the perfect antique find.
Furnished in a neutral color palette with a mix of genuine vintage and modern replicas, the home bursts with Southern charm for a growing family of three.
In the entryway, vintage baskets serve as a plant stand below a row of coat hooks, just right for stashing a light jacket or hat on the way inside.
Across the way, authentic movie theater seats offer a place to sit and kick off dirty boots underneath a large-scale vintage clock.
The kitchen is the main hub of the family's home. Hardwood floors offset cream cabinetry and gray stone countertops. A roomy farmhouse sink is situated across from the island, which offers additional storage and prep space. White subway tile is juxtaposed with a blue statement wall next to large windows.
A vintage fireplace surround is the hallmark of the living room, which is flanked by distressed leather armchairs and grounded by a hide rug. Full-length windows flood the space with light and let the original hardwood floors shine.
A vintage apothecary cabinet offers linen storage in the dining room, where a concrete table is surrounded by antique woven chairs.
An old apothecary cabinet serves as a banquette and rotating vignette space in the hall. Here, it is staged with a vintage fan and distressed shutters next to bronze planters.
A Restoration Hardware bed is the focal piece in the master bedroom, surrounded by vintage end tables and sconces on each side. Off-white linens and throws feel true to the early 20th-century aesthetic.
Megan found an old grain sack with her son's initials, the perfect addition remastered as a pillow atop an antique quilt.
An authentic SOAP sign in the bathroom hangs above a clawfoot tub, where soaking is encouraged while looking out to the crepe myrtle tree. Vertical shiplap siding creates a clean surround atop hardwood floors and a geometric throw rug.
Antique washboards add style and character to the laundry room, which is anchored by hexagonal tile. The space is so welcoming, laundry is almost fun.
As Megan notes, is it really a farmhouse without a front porch and rockers?
