Adding Farmhouse Style to a Modern Space

When we were looking at apartments in the New York City area, we had a few priorities: space, amenities, short commute, and a washer/dryer (yes, that's a bonus in NYC). What wasn't on our list was the style of the building. We ended up in a beautiful brand-new...
