Christmas Grinch is Thumbs Down on Modern Farmhouse

I love old things and old homes, so I’m always thrilled when someone preserves a historic (or just plain old “old”) home and updates or renovates it. Many bungalows in the Houston Heights have been lovingly rescued. And many others that are torn down are replaced with large new homes that fit the original architectural style(s) of the neighborhood.

Personally, I prefer traditional styles. And steer away from trends in decorating … if it’s in style now, it will be out of style in a short while. IMO that includes the current craze called ” Modern Farmhouse ,” as well as all-white color schemes, open floor plans, shiplap, and minimalist interiors.

This home in the Heights is doomed to be razed. By his holiday yard decorations, I can tell that the outgoing homeowner shares my sentiments.
