This farmhouse with classic decor in New Canaan, Connecticut is a sort of showhouse for One Kings Lane since it was designed with items from their featured brands, but it’s not just for show…it also happens to be home to One Kings Lane president Debbie Propst and her family. If you live near it, you should definitely take the tour! We toured it in another post where I showed you the renovation of the home here. You’ll find sources for the exact furniture/home decor and a few suggestions that are close approximations. Affiliate links follow and won’t cost you extra yet may earn me a small commission.
Classic Interior Design in One Kings Lane Connecticut Farmhouse
Open shelving is a well established feature in farmhouse kitchens, and we are accustomed to seeing weathered wood cutting boards and stoneware displayed on shelves…so it’s refreshing to see the other side of rustic here. The homeowner’s collection of English silver and lacy china marry beautifully with the traditional bead board wall, and why not see and use these pieces everyday?
(If this elegant look tingles your jingles,you will LOVE this kitchen I shared.)
For many, a rustic harvest farm table is a farmhouse kitchen staple, whether the farmhouse design is traditional or modern. What we see in OKL’s farmhouse kitchen is not a planked antique, but a fresh, friendly, and contemporary 55″ Charlotte round table and chairs. The pieces for me read soft and sculptural which you are hard pressed to achieve with a rugged, wonky wood suite…and the circular table lends itself to friendly family chatter.
Entries: Front and Back
The front entry has changed as you’ll see…here it is before the trim was painted and the area was wallpapered.
Here is the after…
I love how truly “undecorated” this family room feels. Though it is layered, it presents as if it has evolved over time. If you love skirted tables, you may love these!
Designer Nicole Fisher listened to the homeowner’s ideas and using curated items soured online, not only created a charming family home, but an inspiring show house in New Canaan. The concept is known as “residential retail” so customers can see furnishings in context and how real people use them. It’s a brilliant marketing plan I hope more home décor brands adopt.
As a real life renovator and lover of modern farmhouse style myself, after glimpsing the project,I craved “before shots” to fully understand its evolution so you can also check out the before and after story here.
Turns out, this beautiful home was well done even before the re-design…
