Obviously a farmer would not live here - that's not the point. It's perfectly fine if it's not to one's taste, but the point is just "modern takes on country classics." And in that, it is a great idea book. The "modern farmhouse style is just that - a style. It's meant to evoke the aesthetics of a farmhouse, not to be a literal creation.

Casually browse through Houzz, and you'll find many idea books that encourage and show you how to shop your own home and repurpose and love what you have (which has been invaluable to me). Another casual browse would find some authentic, real farmhouses.

And of course, products will be mentioned. That's a large part of why I (and everyone I know) use Houzz. If I see something I love, of course I want to know where I can find it (or a "reasonable facsimile thereof").
