Before and After: Modern Farmhouse Interior Design Makeover

I’m sharing some before and after redesign magic from a 60 year old renovated modern farmhouse in New Cannaan, Connecticut …here’s the full scoop on the decorating idea inspiration I came up with after seeing this project you missed it.

The interior design for this home was conceived by the Studio (OKL) who reimagined “a tasteful (but tired) 60-year-old property into a contemporary showcase…Designed by Royal Barry Wills, a 20th-century architect who specialized in Cape Cod structures, the farmhouse-style home already had good bones and plenty of character. The challenge? Modernizing the interiors to suit the needs of a growing family without sacrificing the home’s original details and charm.”

I loved seeing the reimagined modern farmhouse, but I think it’s even more helpful to see where it began, so let’s take a look at the before and after interior design story of this beautiful midcentury home.

In the kitchen’s dining/breakfast area, you can see the table has not yet been painted, and while the room already looks gorgeous with its good bones, look what happens when it gets updated…

I love the cheeriness the pool blue striped rug adds, and those mirrors! Here’s another before shot where there was a child-sized  table set.

The kitchen was a beauty even before the makeover with its rugged oak cabinetry and spacious work areas.

The open shelving in a corner of this kitchen is one of my favorite features that was already there, and it’s incredible how much it was dressed up after painting it.

Here’s what motivated the homeowner/OKL president, to take on this project:

“I believe that to be a really great lifestyle brand you have to have a two-way relationship with your customer, and I felt the best way to do that was to open up my home to the One Kings Lane community.”

So brave and honorable! Can you imagine opening up your home for tours while parenting two little ones!?!
