What Houzz contributors are saying:
3. Farm CharmDesigner: Kate Marker of Kate Marker InteriorsLocation: Barrington, Illinois Size: 405 square feet (about 38 square meters), including breakfast nook; 27 by 15 feetYear built: 2013Special feature: Light wood stools, chairs and a farmhouse table layer on white cabinets (Linen White by Benjamin Moore) for a creamy, vintage look. Homeowners’ request: This was a new construction project in which the homeowners, a couple with three young children and another on the way at the time, wanted a timeless look that incorporated traditional and modern pieces. “Timeless with a twist,” says designer Kate Marker. Because it was new construction, the space had no limiting factors to begin with.Plan of attack: The white cabinet paint came first, followed by the light wood furniture pieces. The rest of the house is a soft blend of grays, creams and light blues, so Balboa Mist, a soft neutral by Benjamin Moore, was selected as the wall color.
