Contemporary Country

virginia-farmstead-1Here’s the thing, Washingtonians love living in the nation’s capital. Of course we’re all a bit jaded being surrounded by incredible architecture, history and culture everyday, but the love is deep nonetheless. However, there comes a time in our city life when we long for a bit of quiet (usually when the hordes of tourist invade DC), so a getaway nearby is a must. Such was the case for a power couple that decided to renovate a dilapidated Loudon County farm about 45 minutes from DC.

With the help of interior designer CORTNEY BISHOP they set out to achieve a balance between the great history of the farm and their more contemporary aesthetic. Cortney chose all natural materials like brick, glass, marble, salvaged woods, slate floors, wrought iron and furnishings from BDDW. They upped the farm’s cool factor by upgrading an old silo with a whiskey bar, small spa and guest rooms. The end result is a haven of contemporary country with a bit of historical reference for good measure.
