Warm Neutral Farmhouses – Newburyport Holiday House Tour 2023

My favorite annual event was last weekend – the sold out Newburyport Holiday House Tour. Due to timing, I only made it to three houses – a group of recently built warm neutral farmhouses.

The tour benefits the Anna Jacques Hospital Aid Association. With close to 200 members, the “Aid” is comprised of energetic, dedicated individuals whose goal is to raise funds in support of its community hospital through signature events and programs. Since 1888, the Aid has made a tremendous difference and has provided millions of dollars for mission critical needs.”

This first house is Nantucket inspired with lots of fun island touches. This modern farmhouse was designed by Scott Brown Architects of Newburyport. Their work has been seen on past tours including a holiday tour here and a kitchen tour here.

Farmhouse style shiplap and beautiful millwork throughout. Love all the natural textures from the sisal rugs, seagrass stools, linen fabrics which all work well with the woven Nantucket baskets on display and decorating the Christmas tree.

The dining room is a lovely space overlooking the front yard and filled with vintage prints and art.

The “kids table” was so cute. Also – have those same Christmas dishes!

Elf on a Disco Ball! The suspended one was twirling away. You can see it in motion on my Instagram.

The cute little gingerbread house reminds me I was planning on making one this Christmas.  Thinking it will be next year!

The warm neutral farmhouse bedroom is really well done – festive and still cozy.

The photo below shows how well a classic oriental carpet will work even in a more neutral space.

I never got photos of the kitchen of this house – my guess is that there were too many people milling about when I was there. They did have a fun steel drum group playing which added to the festive island feeling of the home.

 

 

 

This next home, also a neutral warm farmhouse style, was designed collaboratively between the homeowners, Gorman Homes and Gina Baran Interiors. I didn’t get a decent exterior shot.

This house has a lovely flow – it’s an open floorpan but the living area was slightly offset and separate from the dining are and kitchen which makes it feel even more restful.

Loved the naturalistic greens and the neutral toy soldiers.

The natural greens spread down the table accented with bronze metallic balls work so well with the contemporary candle holders and larger lanterns overhead.

And a quiet little moment in the pantry.

These two warm neutral farmhouse tours had a generally naturalistic and casual style. Coming next is a house with a similar architectural style – but a much more formal and traditional interior design which I know you will love!

  1. Love seeing the design of these “New” farmhouses! Instead of a bright white both of these homes have a softer color palette with a nod to the colors of nature outside their big beautiful windows! Thanks for sharing, I loved seeing these homes!

  2. Thanks for the tour Linda. What a wonderful cause. In the Nantucket home, I adore the vintage clipper ship art and plates. The simple tablescape in the dining room, where they brought in some greens from outside and simply lit a few candles, is right up my alley. The holidays are all about the company more than the stuff and I think that the family captured the spirit of a joyful seaside Christmas. Have a Happy Christmas Linda! I’m looking forward to more interior design inspiration from you in 2024 🙂
