Chip and Joanna from Magnolia Homes shared photos of their home with readers worldwide, which is how we found out about this enchanting farmhouse in Texas, United States. After moving from one dwelling to another, the couple decided on settling down and building their dream crib. They purchased a wrecked farmhouse and spent a year and a half renovating it: “My main priority was to open up the main living, dining, and kitchen area. We also finished out the upstairs and created a nice size family room, a guest bedroom and craft room. It took several months to get all my ideas on paper because there was a lot of reconfiguring to do to make the space work for our family of six“, explained owner Joanna Gaines.

The owners salvaged everything they could from the existing farmhouse on site: “Since we added on our master bedroom I used the flooring in the attic for my floors and I also incorporated old doors so the space felt like the rest of the house. I had the best time looking for older fixtures and doors to use and we salvaged all the existing trim and molding to preserve the timeless look of this home“. The color palette include whites and soft neutral tones, which gives the place a harmonious, peaceful atmosphere. What are the decorating elements you find most intriguing?
