I hope you’re getting ready to have a great weekend celebrating Mother’s Day. I am happy to be featuring yet another beautiful home on our “Interior Design Ideas” series. This modern farmhouse-style home was a labor of love for all the builders at Pike Properties LLC.
The lot they had to build on was skinny but deep, so they had to design the home accordingly.
They usually prefer to not to have a front load garage, but with the lot dimensions they had no other choice and they made the best out of it and I think it turned out very pretty. The exposed rafter tails are an added cost but they make the home look true to its farmhouse style and create interest.
The home is 4,422 square feet and features 6 bedrooms as well as 4 and a half bathrooms. Interior Design Ideas: Modern Farmhouse-style Home
The builder wanted to create a space that was flexible in its use for the homeowner.
This space is a home office as pictured and on the plans, but it could function as a living room, library, bedroom, etc. The shiplap wainscoting adds to the farmhouse style and is painted in Benjamin Moore White Dove. Incorporated into the room is a butlers pantry with countertop space for serving trays, making it easy to host a dinner party.
The Butler’s pantry also contains overflow fridge and freezer draws, and a beverage cooler for extra storage of items outside of the kitchen. Plenty of cabinet space abounds for storing fine china, glassware, etc. The rustic exposed beams and chandelier create the farmhouse style that is seem throughout the inside and outside of this home. Cabinet color is custom from the manufacturer – similar to Benjamin Moore HC-168 Chelsea Gray. Staying true to the modern farmhouse style, the builders chose the green/grey custom colored cabinets and a solid maple wood island top. This kitchen allows for great work flow with all the appliances and sink being within a close range of one another.
The ceiling trim accents (above pendants) were crafted to look like a traditional barn door. 6 burners on the range top allow for cooking large meals, and the double ovens below aid in that as well. There is a high-tech touch screen panel to control the ovens. The 3×6 subway tile goes all the way up the wall, creating a wow factor and allowing for a clean and consistent look. Again, you can see the open concept of this space and get a feel for how great a home it is for family and entertaining. This is a cozy dining spot off the kitchen for casual meals and morning cups of coffee.
The built-in bench seat takes you back to a simpler time and gives added functionality. As you can see, the kitchen opens to the living room, making for a great entertaining space and appealing to today’s buyers. The hardwood floors throughout the home are 3.25″ White Oak in a Loba finish. This is the formal and informal living area for the home, so the builder made sure to make it feel that way.
They designed the fireplace so that it was a focal point, but also didn’t distract too much from the wallpaper accents on either side. The mirrored 3×6 glass tile highlights the fireplace, and we kept the mantle simple and clean so it’s didn’t become too busy.
The bookshelves are a nice built-in feature for displaying accessories or books. The coffered ceiling detail was a nice way to add interest and dimension to the room, and dress it up as well. The small windows add a nice touch and let in more natural light to the room.
The living room also features a beautiful wallpaper behind the bookshelves.
Here is a close up look at the beautiful antique mirror subway tile and the leathered black granite. The toilet and sink are in a separate room from the walk-in shower, making it function as a half bath or a full bath, depending on the owners’ needs.
Instead of just doing standard stair risers, inspired by Joanna Gaines from “HGTV’s Fixer Upper” the builder chose to use this unique shiplap pattern on the risers. It creates interest and adds a unique element to this modern farmhouse.
We vaulted the ceiling to make the room feel open and airy, and added in exposed beams for detail and style purposes.
The chandelier we choose from Visual Comfort adds to the rustic vibes.
The focal point of this bathroom is the cast iron clawfoot tub. Doing so provides for a more luxury feel, and gives more space for each sink which is desirable for buyers in today’s market.
Instead of letting space go to waste, the builder installed wooden shelves into a nook next to the right vanity for storage of towels, toiletries, etc. Extra storage is added with a smartly-designed niche with floating shelves.
Whether you are a bath or shower person, this bathroom has you covered with the utmost high end of amenities for both.
The builder chose an eclectic tile (similar here) that was very unique since it was a small space that they could get away with such a choice in, and it was very well received by everyone who saw it.
This is one of the most unique features the builders have ever put into a home, and it was their original idea. They even used subway tile to create the surround so that if the dog splashes water it won’t ruin paint or drywall.
With the weather being so nice most of the year in the Carolinas, an outdoor living space was essential for this home. This covered porch is large enough to accommodate a variety of outdoor furniture.
The fireplace is a solid brick structure with a cedar beam mantel and is gas powered for easy use. The tongue and groove ceiling is painted in Benjamin Moore White Dove. The decking is stained in Benjamin Moore Hidden Valley. The roof is black architectural shingle with metal accenting.
