LOVE how the wide oak plank flooring in the living room perfectly compliments the Rose Corchia Calacatta marble fireplace here.

Modern Farmhouse Style

Modern farmhouse style usually incorporates elements from both traditional farmhouse and modern design.

Think clean lines, glossy accents and neutral color palettes.

Yet it’s less rustic and more urban sophisticated than a traditional farmhouse will be.

You’ll often see contemporary design pieces like stainless steel appliances, soapstone countertops along with minimal architectural flourishes.

The Primary Bedroom Suite

The primary bedroom suite is equally stunning.

Painted in Green Smoke by Farrow and Ball, it manages to be both cozy and yet modern, all at once.

I love how the ceiling is painted here – it really adds to the overall drama and warmth of this space.

Even more great ceiling paint ideas.

Additional Bedrooms

Love how the round jute rug grounds this minimalist bedroom while also adding a bit of interest and texture.

The gray painted trim looks perfect in this space.

A similar idea – paint your trim black.

Modern Farmhouse Style Exterior

The outdoor space is perfect for entertaining.

Features include an expansive patio for alfresco dining and a 50-foot pool.

Rob and his team incorporated over 500 plants to add lush texture to the whole area.

No doubt his clients consider their backyard to be the perfect private oasis. 

Hope you enjoyed this modern farmhouse remodel.
