Creative Farmhouse Style

From there the fun—decorating—began. “I love mixing modern, clean lines with paint-chipped antiques to create an eclectic, unexpected look,” Shea explains. Take, for instance, the dining room, where Lucite chairs pair with a large oak table. “I knew clear chairs wouldn’t take up much visual space, allowing this open-concept area to appear less cluttered.”

In the living room, a modern gray sectional combines with an old golden chair, while a worn trunk doubles as both storage and a coffee table. Anchoring the space is a graphic charcoal rug, which breaks up the neutrals of the room with a bold pattern.
