Farmhouse Inspired : The Crossbuck.

We’re in the midst of building a house, which has been one of the most fun {most work} projects I’ve ever done. I absolutely love every little detail and have been inspired by the farmhouse aesthetic along the way. Because remember, I wish to live in a barn …

I thought I’d share a few of my favorite details along the way, and the inspirations behind them. So today I’m sharing the subtle crossbuck detail that will give nod to the traditional barn “X” doors. We decided to do a double door on the front to really maximize the space and capture the essence of that grand barn door entrance, and I really love the solid crossbuck for the side door.

These details are all over the farm, from the inside of the barn doors to the long, dark fencing that lines the front of the property.  And because I think the art of careful juxtaposition in design is so important, I love the balance of bringing this “rustic” detail into a nice home exterior.

More to come! For a sneak peek into my total home design inspiration, take a peek at my Pinterest board here.

I’m an old soul based in Atlanta, GA and mom of 3 with a deep love of all things from the past with a story to tell, on a mission to keep heirlooms around for another generation - whether it be a tradition, splattered family recipe, or historic home.
