Franklin, TN – Tucked away amidst the rolling hills and agricultural land of Williamson County is an elegant neutral inspired piece of heaven that is the epitome of farmhouse chic.
When Nashville based designer, Rachel Halvorson, was hired to renovate the modern farmhouse of country singer Johnny Reid, and his wife, Jennifer, she had a number of challenges. Not the least of which was that the home was too small for the family and lacked the traditional elegant country feeling the owners wanted.
The home, located on a former horse farm, is nearly double in size. In addition to increasing the number of bedrooms from three to six, the kitchen had also been renovated. The kitchen opens up onto a spacious living room. Like the remainder of the house it is designed with neutral shades of white, taupe, and grey.
Linen covered club chairs, covered in a bold neutral pattern, beautifully accent the soft white upholstered sofa and chairs. A large frame-less equestrian painting dominates the the space and hints at the home’s heritage. A handful of bold accessories complete the space and stand out against the signature white walls.
With such an open layout home, Halvorson opted for a select few colors for the paint scheme. Here soft grey accent colors provide a subtle contrast. Dark stained floors and pecky cypress covered ceiling add interested texture and draw the eye down the sun drenched hallway.
The pecky cypress ceiling continues into the dinning room. Linen covered slipper chairs sit casually around a large country table. Neutral drapes compliment white walls. A simple, crystal accented chandelier adds a glamour sparkle to the serene space.
Symmetry and neutrality reign in the cozy sitting room. When a color scheme is build around neutral tones, texture become paramount to prevent the design from becoming boring. Here, the texture is provided by leather, wood, and brick. Leather club chairs with golden studded accents blends with the medium stained wood coffee table to create a unified design.
