Shiplap is a sought-after look these days, but one place to save is in the materials you use. Unprimed spruce is one of the cheapest options, says Austin Lineberry of New River Building Co., who found it at less than 90 cents per linear foot for this home project. Plus, he used shiplap instead of a tile backsplash around the cabinets, for a consistent look and cost-effective option.
This modern farmhouse kitchen combines new fixtures with old school character and charm. Industrial pendant lights and simple metal chairs contrast the the marble countertops and stainless steel accessories.
In the dining area, designers brought in a rustic farm table that warms the space with its beautiful wood grain. On either end of this table, gray and white upholstered head chairs contribute comfort and texture to the design, while a brass light fixture brings the modern element the homeowners love.
This home is located in Newport Heights,and has a coastal design but with a Modern Farmhouse twist. Keeping the walls white keeps things bright, clean and coastal and lets the furnishings do the talking.
This 12-acre property included a small 1960s contemporary house in original condition. The design team preserved the existing structure for use as a pool house and build a new, traditional farmhouse nearby, connecting the the two buildings with a 40-foot underground tunnel. The modern farmhouse's open porch showcases the idyllic rural view while shading the first floor interior.
With a contemporary Austin farmhouse style, this simple home is as stylish as it is efficient. “It’s intended to be a very contemporary landscape,” explains the house planner Jack Thomasson. “It feels very contemporary, clean and simple.”
This inviting home is designed for an active family in Silicon Valley. Beautiful landscaping surrounds the home, which features siding and stacked stone exterior, as well a combination of shingles and tin roof.
This living room space was an addition to the home's original structure, and, as such, had very strange angles that designers wanted to make sense of, so they chose furniture that would help them create an organized normal room shape with a modern farmhouse design that complements the rest of the home's open concept main spaces.
The homeowners preferred a more space-efficient bathroom that would flow with their rustic yet modern farmhouse. The white wall-mounted toilet, sink and medicine cabinet pop against the dark tile, and the white subway tile in the shower balances the white fixtures in the room.
