Retro Modern Farmhouse that is a combination of family friendly design, retro decor and barn style inspiration.
This farmhouse, located just an hour's drive north of Houston, reflects the homeowner's artistic nature and inner youthful spirit. Helping this now-Big Apple resident achieve the weekend and summer get-away of her dreams -- to share with her two small children and husband -- was the firm of Edwina Alexis Interiors. The modern farmhouse sits on a few acres. No touch rules certainly don't apply here. This home has a kid friendly design, welcoming of kids and family. It's colorful, playful and down-right fun. Note the slide by the stairs at the entrance of the home. And the huge and comfy mix-and-match floor cushions in the TV loft. One of the living room chairs, which you don't see here, is butterfly style upholstered with rag dolls. Edwina even punched up the closets with various bright and bold wallpapers. The guests rooms don't shy away from a mix of pattern and color either. Away from the house is a barn style garage and apartment. All in all, it feels like camp but waaaaay better! When I told my friend, Linda Barth, about it, she decided to feature it in this month's issue of Houston House and Home. Linda is editor of HH&H, the best free shelter publication in and around Houston. Linda is an amazing editor with a great eye for design. I always look forward to getting the next issue that, by the way, you can flip through online. It's like thumbing through the actual magazine. See and read more about this modern farmhouse. Sometimes, it's fun to color outside the lines, ya know?! Enjoy the quick home tour.
