White Farmhouse Exterior and Front Yard

This farmhouse's exterior is made of pristine white cement board. It's intended to look like painted cedar, but offers greater longevity and practicality.

Covered Porch With Swing

Grab an iced tea and spend an easy afternoon right here on the porch swing.

Gray Country Living Room With Exposed Beams

Rough sawn white oak beams help define this living room's vaulted ceiling; the custom-designed rustic coffee table matches the beams and pulls the look together.

Gray and White Country Dining and Living Room

Light wood floors, a white and gray palette and an open concept layout all contribute to the easy, airy feel of this living and dining room. The artwork was custom-made for the home: "A Day at the Beach" by the home's designer Linc Thelen.

Country Dining Room With Wood Table

A simple wooden dining table brings farmhouse friendliness to this dining area. The gray pendant light is an unusual and striking pairing. Glass doors lead directly out to the backyard and pool, a handy arrangement for entertaining.

Gray and White Open Plan Country Kitchen

As fresh as a country day, this open plan kitchen features a handsome dark gray island with a soapstone countertop. The other counters are walnut, which blend well with the reclaimed oak floating shelves. Navy blue barstools bring in a subtle hint of color.

Gray and White Country Kitchen With Blue Barstools

Clean-lined metal barstools with no backs tuck neatly under the kitchen island and leave the sightline open, a plus in this open concept space. The kitchen's white walls and backsplash help visually connect the room to the rest of the home.

Blue Barn Door Entrance to Bunkroom

This 5-foot wide barn door leads into a bunk room that can sleep up to eight.

Blue and White Country Bedroom With Bunk Beds

Young houseguests will be over the moon about this bedroom that sleeps up to eight and has a sliding barn door entrance. The navy blue-and-white color scheme gives a crisp nautical feel.

Blue and White Contemporary Kid's Room With Geometric Carpet

The geometric print FLOR carpet squares freshen up the design of this fun kid's bedroom. Sconces in each bunk are controlled by individual switches so young occupants can get in late night comic book reading without disturbing nearby sleepers.

Kid's Transitional Blue and White Bathroom With Fish Wallpaper

Wallpaper featuring schools of fish offset the more traditional design of this kid's bathroom swimmingly. Classic white subway tile makes up the backsplash in the shower and the poplar floor is painted white. 

Blue Fish Wallpaper in Kid's Bathroom

Go fish! What could be more fun in a nautical-themed kid's bathroom than wallpaper filled with fish? Keeping the paper only on the upper half of the walls helps the small print from overwhelming the space.

Neutral Transitional Bedroom With Bench

The subtle neutrals in this bedroom leave plenty of room to layer in fun prints and patterns. Case in point: the upholstered bench at the foot of the bed done in a blue, white and red ticking stripe.

Country Master Bath With Wood Vanity

This charming bathroom vanity and shelving was custom made from reclaimed wood by Linc Thelen Design. The floors are black slate.

Orange Country Guest Bedroom With Wood Bed

This small print wallpaper has a sweetly vintage feel; its bold blue and orange hue gives it a fresh modern twist. The navy blue lacquered nightstand and whale tale lamp continue the chic-meets-country design theme.

Vintage Clawfoot Tub and Tile Floor

Stark white walls don't distract from bold patterns, like the vibrant starburst design of this guest bathroom's tile floor. A vintage clawfoot tub tucks cozily into the niche ready to soak worries away.

Modern Farmhouse Guest Bath

Designed with outdoor access to the pool and outdoor shower in mind, the ship lap walls and reclaimed wood whitewash vanity are perfect for this accessible bathroom.

White Farmhouse Exterior and Backyard With Pool

Blue stone pavers make up the back patio. Four fire engine red Adirondack chairs energize the whole backyard scene and, paired with the white house and blue pool, deliver a cheery hint of patriotism.

Backyard With Pool and Picnic Table

On the weekend, this backyard has all that you need: Start with brunch around the picnic table. Move on to a dip in the pool or a game on the grassy lawn. A sectional makes for easy lounging in the evening or anytime.
