Modern Farmhouse Living Room

By Roger Hazard

The Modern Farmhouse's living room, sunken a foot from the dining room, is filled with light through the huge windows facing West. The cool, concrete floors and high ceilings create a sense of spaciousness, and the rear door leads out to the covered patio and landscaped backyard.
