Updated Farmhouse Retreat Furnished With Vintage Pieces And Antiques

Located in Litchfield County, in Connecticut, this rustic retreat has a lot of character and a ton of charm. It reminds us of French farmhouse-style interiors but obviously with a very distinct flair. It was built where once a dairy and horse farm used to stand and although the original building was too damaged to be repaired or salvaged, the new structure’s front mimics the original, being a beautiful updated replica of the old farmhouse. The new design is the work of Marisa Bistany Perkins of M West Designs,

The house has not only a beautiful and authentic farmhouse decor but also a very charming rustic vibe with an outdoorsy feel. At the center stands the great room, with a stone-clad fireplace built using granite from the original house’s foundation, leather sofas, vintage armchairs, lots of unfinished wood and large windows which let in sunlight. On one side there’s a barn room and on the other there’s a garage and a welcoming porch.
