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!
Details like the shabby chic wood paneling, antique-style coffee barrel and an outhouse-style door on the changing room give this recreation room loads of character. The red metal cabinets offer a sleek, updated contrast to all the country charm.
This formal dining room mixes traditional, country and rustic elements for a unique look. Whitewashed wood paneling, exposed beams and a chunky dining table are a given in this lakeside farmhouse, but the elegant china cabinet and hanging lamps bring a touch of the unexpected to the space.
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.
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.
