Howdy!! Today I’m v v excited to finally be sharing my modern farmhouse living room with y’all! This room is just one part of the open floor plan. Dining room coming soon 😉
As I’ve mentioned before, there was an existing home on the property when we bought the lot. We took it down to the studs, re-built and re-designed our modern farmhouse. In order to capture the mountain VIEWS right outside, we opted for a vaulted ceiling design paired with massive windows lining the back wall. It was THE best decision we made on our home. When walking in the front door, you immediately see the cozy living space, massive fireplace and most importantly, gorg views.
The fireplace in the living room is THE focal point of the house. We legit designed the entire space around it. This is a masonry fireplace and a work of art in my opinion! We decided to use the same glen rose stone that we selected for the exterior. This was a great way to tie the inside and outside of the house together.
We decided on Sierra Pacific Windows (architectural series) for the great quality, style and medium-range price. I get asked all the time if they are steel. They sure are NOT! lol 😉 It wasn’t in our budg as they can be SO expensive. Instead we opted for these pretty gems. To make the windows look like steel, I had them painted black on the inside… just a lil’ tip for y’all – you’re welcome! 😉
The wood selection in our home was also a BIG decision. In this space there is a lot happening: floors, beams, columns and wood storage under the fire place. The floors are 8″ white oak with a custom stain from Stromberg Moore. At first, we decided on a manufactured wood but changed our minds last minute. I’m sure glad we did because they turned out beautiful! The beams and columns all came from Trestlewood. I went full Joana Gains and headed down to the lumber yard to select the color beams/columns I wanted for the house. This was very helpful for my builder when purchasing the rest of the wood. Consistency is key and there are SO many hues when it comes to wood! These beauties are natural reclaimed beam/columns with no stain. Aren’t they purrrrrdy!?!
Lastly, I selected the wood under the fireplace – birch! As I mentioned above, we designed the living space around the fireplace unit, including the hearth/boxes below it. I wanted to mix rustic elements of stone and a reclaimed mantle with a modern concrete hearth, black steel boxes and clean-looking birch. I think the overall design turned out wonderful and it is a great representation of my home’s theme, modern farmhouse. I found the birch wood here. And yes, I put every single piece, in every single box! 😉 It took a minute, but the final look is SO worth it.
After the design and major finishes were selected for the space, it was time for furniture and decor! YAY! Overall I wanted my home to be neutral but full of texture. This is why I selected different materials for each sitting space: linen, cotton and velvet. I added even more texture with pillow and blankets: knits, burlap, faux fur and wool. I’m all about a COZY home! 😉 I’ve linked my furniture and decor items below except for my two sofas and rug. They deserve their own explanations as I get asked about them ALL THE TIEM. All three are from Restoration Hardware. Here are the deets…
