What Houzz contributors are saying:

The house is very much a traditional farmhouse, so Duane stuck with that framework when decorating. As an older home, it always has some task that requires a little extra attention. Since Duane and her family have lived here, they've replaced the roof, most of the windows, the heating, and renovated the kitchen and the great room.

3. A country charmer in western New York. Susan Duane, blogger of Hometown Girl, has preserved the classic look of her antique home through major renovations. The use of black and white lends a crisp, traditional look.
Hanging plants. These are also a welcoming classic. Sometimes they are a slight pain to water, so when I'm feeling lazy I use these glass balls like these that can keep them watered for up to two weeks.
Laura Gaskill added this to How to Outfit a Classic Farmhouse
An almost-black hue on shutters paired with white siding is a classic farmhouse look. Keep landscaping and porch plantings simple with a lawn, neatly trimmed shrubs and hanging pots of Boston ferns.
