A couple of months ago on our Mobile Home Living: Remodels and Repairs Facebook group we came across this gorgeous 1998 Franklin double wide and we immediately sent the owner a message asking if we could share it on our site. Fortunately, they agreed and we are so excited to share this perfect combination of country and coastal décor from the Hernes in Illinois.
Country and Coastal are a Perfect Combination
Farmhouse country has been all the rage the past few years. However, many homeowners have taken to combining that country look with a coastal feel that is laid back to create a new décor trend that makes it feel like Summer all year long. The Country Coastal color scheme combines light aqua, spa blue, whites, and neutrals, to create a cozy and relaxed look we just love.
Functional and Friendly Kitchen
Mrs. Herne tells us their 1998 Franklin double wide has all the feel of a traditional ranch home with the open floor plan and the split bedroom setup. The home had been remodeled by its previous owners, so all that the couple needed to do was update it to fit their décor style.
One tip that Mrs. Herne shared, and we are a big fan of here at Mobile Home Living, is to use the same color scheme throughout the home, which makes it easy to update the décor in any room.
Perfect for Entertaining
Living in a mobile home community can bring its own set of challenges to owners. One of the biggest being the lack of space between lots and how to create a relaxing entertaining spot in that small space. However, the Hernes didn’t let that slow them down. A brick patio fills one end of the yard and allows enough space for table and chairs and a grill. While along the front of the home, landscaping makes a perfect boundary between homes. Finally, on the back entrance to the home, a small porch with seating and a roll out awning finish the look.
Mrs. Herne says she has lived in several mobile homes over the years, but this one is by far her favorite and we can see why. An open floor plan, a relaxed combination of country and coastal décor, and an updated remodel that enabled the couple to just move in without having to do the work themselves makes this one great home.
