The farmhouse aesthetic is making a comeback in both architecture and design circles around the country. Perfectly at home in Sonoma County, the style is characterized by covered porches, pitched ceilings, rustic beams and exposed woodwork. Examples include monochromatic white color palates and an abundance of repurposed materials like barn doors and rusty old tools.

Although, this contemporary reiteration comes out of the minimalist trend of the late 1990s, it is anything but cold and stuffy.  Modern farmhouses exude warmth and ease with comfortable furniture, fireplaces and fully-equipped kitchens capable of meeting the demands of busy families.

In Sonoma County, the farmhouse aesthetic can be found everywhere from duplexes to million-dollar estates.  It is a natural complement to the Wine Country lifestyle – both refined and relaxed.
