Home Farm is Emmerdale’s most exclusive property; boasting 11 bedrooms and numerous communal rooms. The farm usually houses the wealthiest characters and the ownership of the manor has been a central theme to the show’s storylines since the 1980’s. Each family that moves into Home Farm usually decorates it in a way that reflects their personality; the Whites were a luxurious, ‘bourgeoisie’ family, Home Farm mirrored this. The family installed plantation shutters throughout their home creating a classic look yet contemporary look. The shutters are stylish and add privacy to the home of this secretive family.
