Emily Henderson’s Farmhouse

Our latest partnership with interior designer and stylist Emily Henderson is just getting started! Read on to learn more about her Portland Farmhouse project and all the unique spaces inside this 100-year-old homestead.

The First Floor

The home is large, about 3,500 square feet, and the first floor has a spacious living room, kitchen and dining room. An addition from the 1960s creates additional space for an eventual family room and primary suite. A cute original fireplace adds tons of charm, too!

The Second Floor

It might not look like much yet, but the second floor is a hidden gem complete with three large bedrooms and a shared bathroom, all connected by a large landing. It’s spacious, bright and open, with plenty of room to work with.

The 1850 House

As if this property wasn’t already full of potential, it also has an additional “kit house” from 1850 that will be turned into an office and guest space. It’ll be updated with all the necessities like working plumbing and electricity but will also be a fun place to experiment with more eclectic designs that match the unique nature of this space.

  5. I’m really interested following this. I just bought a 65 year old home on 3 acres and have a project ahead of me as well.

  6. I hope Emily renovates the space and does not “remuddle” it. There’s a difference. (Remuddling is where the vintage charm and antique architectural parts of a house are removed in favor of updating it to a modern look.)

  7. Would love to see her ideas!
