Inside an idyllic Catskills home on 32 acres

Built in the early 1900s, this house originally operated as a carriage house and, later, as a cauliflower farm. It took several years to transform the property into its current state, and the owners had several walls taken down to open up the interiors and create larger rooms throughout. The living space, which sits snugly between the dining area and kitchen, keeps the original beams intact and plays up a natural palette and rich materials.

In Colorado, a couple DIYs the renovation of a 1957 gem

On the 1,330-square-foot main floor of this Colorado home, every corner got a serious makeover. The owners knocked down a wall to open up the dining room and updated the kitchen. They also removed carpet and installed hardwood floors throughout. The windows in the airy living room, furnished with a mix of vintage and new, contribute to the home’s natural heating and cooling, providing opportunities for cross-breezes in the summer and radiant heat in the winter. Statement plants provide a natural contrast to the field of neutral tans and grays.

In farmland near Muncie, Indiana, Kelsey and Tyler Johnston purchased a lot on which architect David Rausch would ultimately build them a sustainability-driven dream home. Rausch noticed traditional Indiana barns on his first drive to the site, and suggested they take cues from the region’s vernacular architecture. This design direction is echoed throughout the home, including in the living room, which is styled with a reclaimed wood coffee table, neutral colors, and white oak floors.
