This Southern California renovation shows that even simple farmhouse additions go a long way.

Custom design can be hard to come across in a large master-planned community, where homeowners can choose between only five different floor plans. So it made sense that shop owner and instagrammer Jaclyn James of Jaclyn James Home chose to renovate her San Diego, California, home, turning her modern beige abode into a classic farmhouse.

Although many people keep wreaths to the winter months, Jaclyn uses them as farmhouse accents in her foyer year-round. A wreath will add a charming burst of color and fresh air. Tie the space together with supplemental foliage in a vase or jug.


Jaclyn’s home is a new build, located in a suburban community at the highest point in north San Diego County. Throughout the renovation process, Jaclyn balanced her personal preferences against the home’s placement in the master-planned neighborhood. “I wanted to keep with what a buyer would expect coming into the community so someone, in theory, could make it their own,” Jaclyn says.

Oversized features like this gigantic wooden clock make a bold focal statement. Framed on both sides by vintage window panes, the circular timepiece rounds out the space. Plus, its creamy color complements the neutrals of the pillow, box and curtain rods, making the piece the perfect geometric and tonal fit.

“Black and white has just always been my thing.”
