This farmhouse living room features light, wide plank hardwood floors under a white vaulted ceiling with skylights. More light pours in through the wall of windows, which illuminates the light-colored brick fireplace and wooden built-in cabinets. The fireplace with vaulted ceiling design is versatile and can be adapted to suit various aesthetics beyond the farmhouse style. For example, for a modern look, replace the brick fireplace with a sleek, linear gas fireplace with a minimalist concrete or metal surround. Opt for built-in cabinets with clean lines, and choose a neutral color palette for the walls and ceiling; and consider incorporating contemporary furnishings, such as a low-profile sofa and a glass coffee table.
