Where Are Farmhouses Most Common?

From Arizona to Georgia, buyers are embracing a contemporary twist on this American classic, blending black-framed windows, white exteriors, wood accents, and open interiors.

"In the South, we're seeing a big push for a more modern farmhouse," says Terance Manly, a design studio manager for Taylor Morrison in Atlanta. "Expect to see light wood flooring, geometrical patterns, earthy undertones, shiplap and mid-century modern furniture with touches of leather and velvet."
