New Home, Old Rots

This Kentucky farmhouse puts the fun in funky with colorful décor and a collection of vintage finds.
The Harrises love to spend time on their wraparound porch, so the house was outitted with lots of doors for easy access to the outside.

How do you freshen up traditional farmhouse style in 2019? With modern twists and lovable quirks, of course. That’s exactly how Lauren Elder of Lauren Elder Interiors accomplished this well-balanced and beautiful residence in rural Kentucky.

Simple white shiplap walls and doors allow the hallway to remain in the background while focusing on the furniture and other accents.


Though the homeowners Jeff and Sherrie Harris have spent a lot of time in Nashville, Tennessee, they ultimately felt compelled to return to their roots and their extended family, in Owensboro, Kentucky. But the location of the house is not its most meaningful feature. Lauren helped Jeff and Sherrie incorporate pieces of their past into their brand new home. In fact, the couple owns two family farms, and they sprinkled the wood from one of their barns throughout each room. “The wood creates a warm and cozy feeling, and it transforms the house into a home,” Lauren says.
