These ideas from our first-ever renovation of a historic home offer inspiration for floors, ceilings, and everything else—including the kitchen sink!
Restoring a historic home requires sensitivity to its architecture coupled with an understanding of how to bring modern touches and amenities to its spaces. When this Georgia home was renovated as the Southern Living farmhouse idea house, our editors worked with talented designers to bring the home to its full potential. This farmhouse idea house tour shows you how our creative team tackled this beautiful Southern Living farmhouse project. From its wraparound porch—with unique side porch and back porch spaces—to its gorgeous living room, dining room, and keeping room ideas, this farmhouse restoration idea house highlights how a subtle approach to renovating an existing home can lead to sensational results.
