Farmhouse Bathroom with Contemporary, Traditional Touches
This modern farmhouse bathroom blends contemporary and traditional details with rustic-industrial touches, creating a look that's at once homey and chic. Exposed plumbing pipes and steel legs on the sink basin keep the sink area open, giving the room an airy feel. The straw-colored trim is an unexpected touch that brings a fun pop of color.
Scandinavian Master Bedroom With Eye-Catching Fireplace
The modern fireplace is centered on a wall of windows and French doors, creating a striking contrast in this bright white master bedroom. Exposed wood beams add a rustic note, while a chic gold chandelier brings in a touch of glam.
A generously sized room provides spaces for both relaxing around the fireplace and dining with friends. Rather than resting below one of the specific zones, a large area rug helps delineate the space separating each zone.
Modern construction can often feel austere and uninviting — the homeowners wanted to shift that dynamic, but ensure the space still felt minimalist. Earthy hues, organic elements and selected antiques are incorporated for maximum impact, resulting in a space that feels warm and inviting, but also clean and edited.
The kitchen in this Mediterranean-inspired farmhouse is clean and sparse, with all-white cabinetry and a simple white subway tile backsplash. Dark hardwood floors and a dark-painted island warm up the space and give it added dimension. A rustic pendant above the island brings both function and flair.
Work whites in. You don't have to have a rustic-chic space to bring that fresh feel to your home. Kitchens will burst with light when given a fresh coat of white paint. Single-bowl sinks can take up less precious bench space than many double-bowl designs, while allowing enough room to fit large pots, pans and dishes.
Stone column bases, a new front door, new windows, dark wood shutters and rustic sconces make for a dramatic front entrance that integrates well with the Italian country vibe of the newly remodeled interior.
You can mix old and new elements to add depth and creativity to a room. For example, designer Lori Rourk paired a weathered antique column and coastal artwork with a shining new bar cart, which also adds in a variety of materials and textures.
