Whenever life gets too crazy, we close our eyes, brew a cup of tea, and cozy into the worn leather chair we picked up on the side of 61st and 1st Avenue a few years back. We imagine that we live not in New York City, where a decidedly frenetic pace is the standard MO, but instead, in a restored farmhouse with high beamed ceilings, wide plank wood floors, and a whole lot of light. We imagine a home where your toes have the slightest bit of chill when the touch the floor in the morning, a place where your breath steams up the air in the shower at night, a place where freshly picked apples are a regular occurence. And in our mind, that home we imagine…it looks a whole lot like this rustic industrial Pennsylvania schoolhouse we came across on Coco & Kelley recently. Built in 1907, this beautifully renovated home features lots of worn leathers and burnished woods, plus some great industrial accents, peppered in with beautiful antiques and brass touches that add a hint of sophistication to the space.
Don't you just want to snuggle into that leather chair? We do. Loving the farmhouse table paired with those modern tulip chairs and the cowhide rug. The perfect mix! An industrial light fixture tops it off, as do the chocolate-stained floors on which all of it sits.
Bedroom love, right? So cozy! A sheepskin makes for a great addition to that chair, and we love how simple this room is. Reclaimed wood beamed on the back wall make for a pseudo headboard, while crisp white bedding compliments the white walls and ceiling.
Don't you just love that antique armoire? We're especially feeling that collection of vintage glass bottles atop the closet. They add such a homey feel to the space, and a serious sense of history to the home overall. Wonder if they were discovered on the property? We wouldn't be surprised if this was so.
