“I’ve never lived with an open floor plan, but it felt right for the more informal feel we envisioned for the farmhouse,” says Margot Shaw, founder and editor-in-chief of Flower magazine.

Appliances hide behind panels in the island or are tucked into the cabinetry. For a full room tour, watch the video above led by Mary Evelyn McKee, interior designer of the 2021 Flower showhouse.
