I like the 2 levels of this island separating the eating area from the prep area (thinking knives and hot food away from hungry "grabby" kids). Wondering how the "chef" can "take a load off" during a moment of downtime...flip down stool?
I like the cabinet style. Island needs seating space. Love the lights and how the refrigerator sits nearly flush with the cabinets
Cabinets are great, island is ok but prefer a rounded seating area
Still think the peninsula gives the most space in the kitchen and allows better flow between appliances.
White cabinets really pop in these farm home kitchens but I fear keeping them clean with kids would be a nightmare. Still, with dark woodwork and possibly floors, it would really lighten things up
Not the floor for us, but the cabinets.
Island is great here and has the "D" shape we like. Wall mount oven would be great, but I fear we'd never utilize the 2nd oven that seems to be so common with them - if only one of them was the microwave...
Corner posts on island are a real plush here and brings character, making the island the focus point rather than the appliances. I've seen where the 2 posts on the seating side are floating and support the overhang which I like. Kitchen table meets prep area.
Really think a non-rectangular shape the the island/peninsula makes for a unique design. Here the square island is really cool looking and gives a kitchen table sort of feel which fits nicely in a farm house kitchen.
We have similar high seated chairs. If they fit the seating area, we could use them to give the same look as this picture.
How cool is this little cabinet? Loads of charm.
Again great wood details here to bring the farm charm
This general layout would fit in our space. But by opening the wall up behind the camera, the peninsula could be pulled toward the camera and made longer to provide more seating
Adding a feature like this to an interior wall gives character, but might have to be added later.
Apron/farm sink is really great! Might have to splurge on that. Also love the posts supporting the overhang on the island.

Interesting use of minuscule space for small items.
Like the colors here
Here is a single wall oven with microwave...this would be optimal for us.
ledge gives a place for deco's, etc
Beadboard is perfect for our style, although need to investigate color/finish options
This is likely a bit "grand" but I do appreciate the way it minimizes the impact of the technology on the room style. This is an important concept for the farmhouse style we want.
Again a bit much for us, but the concepts I think we can apply from this are 1) the wood floor with area carpet to anchor floating furniture which we're likely to have in our living space due to the # of windows and their height in the rooms. 2) use of built-ins for deco/storage.
Yea I like the look that an open stairway with rails gives...visually gives a central focal point and doesn't make going upstairs seem like a complete exile.
The crown, chair rail, and darker wall below the rail give a warm, early century feel, but could easily make a room dark/dingy at night if now very well lit.
Nice...nothing in particular, just comfortable and inviting
Here is a concept of the living space transitioning directly into the kitchen which is really our desire. In our case, the living room and the kitchen most likely are "L" shaped but if the island/peninsula has a table-ish look, I think it would pull together the 2 spaces into 1
Great, great fan!!
Only thing of note for us here is the TV in casement/framing which again softens the impact the technology has on the room style...makes it appear as a picture and so blends in.
This 4" ceiling board really says farm charm
Love this concept - cant see how it would fit into our place, but making a place to relax a integral part of the house itself...
Close to what I'm envisioning for the attic
Classic fresh exterior look
The general color scheme I'm thinking for the exterior. With evergreen trees being the backdrop for the house, I'd like to remove the green and make a light grey: light enough to provide contrast, but not as difficult to keep clean (farm=dust). White trim could set it off with clean lines and would not show dust as evidently as a solid white wall would. A black shingle would set off the roofline and show the dormer lines.
Color sceme for ext?
Ryan's room having non-typical structural elements would really be to his liking.
Again this window box seating area would be very inviting and give the room character.
