Design trends will come and go, but there’s something about the traditional farmhouse charm that almost seems timeless. I had the privilege of being part of the team who designed this modern farmhouse and this is what we did to embrace the farmhouse style!
I feel like everyone loves a white exterior but they also have very different opinions on the best selection for the trim! Usually, the options are between white or black and I’ll always pick the white! I just think it’s the perfect touch to create that traditional farmhouse feel! We also mixed roofing materials here and added a metal roof around the front porch!
Today I design homes with pure white walls and trim, which I love, but we did something different here and kept it warm! Not only did we use a warm white, but we also stepped up our trim selection to a little warmer as well to create a warm and welcoming space! Greens are also trending in a big way right now and we used a soft shade here on the kitchen cabinets, but just the lower ones and the island!
We mixed things up a little bit with our tile selections! Not only did we use subway tile through-out the bathrooms but we also included large black hexagon tiles in the guest bath! The kitchen backsplash has one of my favorite varieties of the subway tile which is more of a square and not so much a rectangle!
Opening up the floor plan also meant opening up this pass-through pantry! The lower cabinets feature rolling drawers which are perfect for keeping this space organized.
Upstairs, the goal was to create a learn-from-home space as well as a place for fun! Planning for storage is a must, so we added plenty of storage space by creating built-in shelving in the living room and study.
I think it’s the details that really make a space, which is what really makes this home special! From the modern pantry styled with canisters, to the kitchen with an open storage island; it’s the details like this that create that timeless farmhouse charm.
