Jeff and Michelle Sanders loved the home they raised their two children in but were tired of being so far from friends and work. They called upon the hosts of HGTV's Fixer Upper, Chip and Joanna Gaines, to help them get their perfect home in the perfect location.
Don't be fooled by the rustic, exposed beams and chunky details in this farmhouse kitchen -- it's anything but rudimentary. High-end appliances, elegant task lighting and ample counter space are just what a skilled cook needs to make this kitchen sing. Thankfully, the extra-wide staircase will accommodate a stampede when the dinner bell rings!
You've got to love a front porch where you can not only sit but you can lounge. This farmhouse boasts an impressive line-up of comfy chaise lounge chairs. While the black and white color palette and charming details of the house may draw you in, it's these chairs and fantastic view of the lake that make you never want to leave.
This farmhouse living room has all the elements that make you want to curl up on the sofa with a good book and never leave. A casual brick fireplace, dark wood built-ins and exposed beams set the stage for a cozy space. Loads of sumptuous textures and natural light drive that point home.
This farmhouse boasts a great view of the lake, which makes the dine-in porch the best seat in the house at mealtime. A casual teak dining set is both comfortable and fitting for outdoor dining. The industrial-style fan adds a homespun feel while serving to keep temps on the porch moderate during warmer-weather months.
This beautiful, eco modern kitchen is the focal point for the house. With natural elements, such as the live edge wood shelving, the natural green and yellow of the walls and the wood trim around the doors and windows, and the modern touches like the clean lines and smooth edges of the cabinets and the countertop, this design perfectly encompasses the homeowners' desire for a kitchen that reflects their love for nature as well as their attraction to the modern design style.
Keeping the flow consistent is an important part of every home, so to keep this home's flow in sync, designers replaced the standard, rectangular doorway with an arched one. Since an arched doorway leads from the dining room into the living room, this arched doorway adds symmetry to the dining room as well as gives a more natural flow to the whole house.
From the subway tiles to the squared-off pedestal sinks and high-gloss hardwood floors, the sleek details in this rustic farmhouse bathroom give it an elegant, polished look. The white palette offers a clean, fresh feeling and a great contrast to the dark wood molding.
The homeowners are very environmentally conscious, and, naturally, wanted that consciousness to show up in the design for their kitchen, so they insisted on a design that blended natural elements with modern elements to create an eco modern feel in their home. The design includes wood shelves with live edges to bring in some of the raw beauty of nature into the space, while the straight, clean lines of the cabinets and shelves add modern flair to this stylish kitchen.
