A swift refresh has been brought in the 19th century farmhouse that follows, now using a shabby chic expression to shape a comfortable living space. It was entitled the Floating Farmhouse thanks to its unique porch that actually floats on water; it resides in Eldred, New York and it enjoys a state of extraordinary tranquility in simplicity, untainted.

Givonehome is the author behind the farmhouse restoration; in their design endeavor they aimed to keep authentic details in place, to build on authenticity with modern facilities and new elements in contrast as they further relate: “after a design and rebuild process spanning four years, the 1820 manor home is now a study in contrasts: fully restored to its period grandeur while featuring purely modernist elements, including a curtain wall of skyscraper glass in the kitchen, polished concrete and steel finishes” the house offers style in full comfort today, simply refreshed.

A very luminous and spacious kitchen enjoys floor to ceiling windows that glance over its surrounding allowing light to enter, animating the vivid atmosphere beautifully. The decor elements are sculpted by light; inside everything working, everything valid stood still in the refresh, shabby elements now define the wonderful retreat, offering a happy few a peaceful state of tranquility.

A simply extraordinary ambiance to be enjoyed with your loved ones.

The bedroom enjoys an immense chimney in a generous, beautiful space.
