This Stunning West Virginia Farmhouse Absolutely Nails Old-Meets-New
Hiram Hedges House
Ultimate Porch-Sitting Experience
“It’s a relaxing country home with beautiful natural light, green views, and great bird watching,” Swan told SouthernLiving.com.
Charming Farmhouse Kitchen
The owners adopted a “Better not Bigger” philosophy for the kitchen remodel, and were able to keep the original footprint and find extra space by removing mismatched upper cabinets and streamlining storage into lower cabinets. Newer features include a porcelain farmhouse sink, a modern pull-down faucet and marble countertops. Personally, we can’t keep our eyes off the vintage jadeite hardware on the island!
Joanna Gaines would love the kitchen’s hexagon backsplash and reclaimed wood shelf.
In the kitchen, a brief glimpse of the home’s original log skeleton becomes a unique design element.
We never thought exposing a section of the home’s old log walls could look so good!
Refinished Hardwood Floors
An artisan from Washington, DC refinished all of the house’s original hardwood in Scandinavian White glaze.
Outdoor Living Area
The French doors in the dining room open out onto a beautifully landscaped patio framed by a custom wooden fence.
Pavers lead the way to the home’s original stone smokehouse, which, we have to add, would make a perfect potting shed.
Exposed Wood Beams
Exposed raw wood beams in the living room contrast beautifully with the space’s updated color palette and fresh coat of paint.
Log Wall with Chinking
Accent walls don’t get much more unique than this one, which features an exposed section of the home’s original log structure—chinking and all.
An incredible amount of thought was put into every little bit of the home’s extensive renovation, the wallpaper included. Historically, the house was wallpapered in cabbage roses from the Victorian era. To honor this, the owners installed beautiful Neo-traditional wallpaper, with swans and lotuses floating amongst foliage in plum, olive, teal, and metallic silver accents on white.
Instead of gutting the bathrooms, the clawfoot tubs and vintage vanities were outfitted with high-end finishes: Montblanc marble, a French shower, nickel fixtures, and designer lighting.
