The overall vision for this home's spaces was modern farmhouse, so designers chose a beautiful oak hardwood floor to run throughout the main areas of the house. Then, they brought in a lot of white and marble, helping to make the spaces feel timeless and classic. Finally, warmth was added to the home through gold and black accents and wood details that really brought the rustic farmhouse feel to life.
A custom-designed railing made from mesh and metal piping lines this one-of-a-kind stairway. Corrugated tin adds interest on the ceiling, as does a custom light fixture dubbed "Daddy Long Legs" by the design team. Glass block windows bring in loads of natural light.
This home is located in a historical neighborhood where timeless and classic finishes are appreciated, so designers chose to embrace that design by installing white throughout the space. From the white and gray tile backsplash to the white kitchen island, the space remains clean and classic with wood accents that bring warmth to the design.
The designers installed a commercial garage door, metal siding and all new exterior lighting on this modern home addition. The structure features a shed roof and sleek, narrow profile that's suited to its narrow lot.
This industrial farmhouse kitchen boasts unique elements from each style that add to the design, while the clean lines and neutral colors of the space bring a modern feel to the kitchen, creating a space that is unique to the homeowners.
Designers wanted to create a bright, open look in this kitchen, so they brought in white cabinets grounded by gray countertops. For a pop of color, they decided to paint the island a light gray color. Then, they added a Neolith marble countertop to the island which, along with black matte fixtures and an apron front sink, combines the farmhouse feel with the industrial touch.
In the living room, designers added texture and contrast with a plaid rug, while solid furniture anchors the space. A brass floor lamp gives the room a touch of glamour and brings in the modern element the homeowners love.
The "X" detail on the ends of the kitchen island help to provide support for the extended breakfast bar while adding a bit of texture and warmth to the white color palette of the modern farmhouse kitchen.
The breakfast bar adds seating for four at the kitchen counter. Since the kitchen and dining room are connected by the open floor plan of the home's main spaces, this breakfast bar also acts as an extension of that space as well.
Although designers from America's Most Desperate Kitchens wanted to create an authentic looking farmhouse kitchen, they also wanted to give the homeowners lots of modern luxuries, so they combined vintage inspired features, like the mint refrigerator and mixer and large print tile floor, with modern cabinets and countertops, creating a durable, elegant space.
Natural light accentuates the breath of fresh air in the modern farmhouse look of this inviting living room. Natural wood beams, a brick hearth white washed walls bring a beautiful combination of textures to the room. Pale blue pieces and patterned chairs liven up the design without overpowering the serene feel.
A modern dining space creates a fun juxtaposition with the crisp, traditional kitchen in this newly built modern farmhouse. In the dining room, a bold blue rug takes its cues from the bright hue of the kitchen island. Mid-Century inspired dining chairs surround a rustic-industrial farmhouse table, while a modern light fixture is light, airy and playful.
