Modern Farmhouse Client Progress Part 2

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Ours was pretty restful, actually. I tried to stay off the computer and not worry about prepping any blog posts this weekend, which is why I didn't have a post up Monday. I feel like it's so important to step away from technology periodically, if even for a day or two!

I'm excited to be sharing some more progress with you on one of my client's new construction houses. This is the Modern Farmhouse I showed you progress on a few months ago. It's a really large home, so it's slowly coming together. It'll be ready in about two months, just in time for it to be in the Parade of Homes in May! (I should note the color on the walls is not the paint color we're going with.)

This is the foyer when you walk in. There's an entry nook to the right (forgot to snap a picture! oops!) and to the left is the playroom (this family has 5 kids), which leads into the family room via french doors. Straight ahead is the dining room, which opens to the kitchen and hearth room to the right.

Here's the view of the playroom, looking towards the entry. You can see the entry nook I was talking about here. It has shiplap in the nook to give it a special touch. We're going to do a long mirror, bench, hooks for coats, and a basket for shoes.

From the playroom there are these french doors (the glass panels are covered for painting) opening to the family room.

 Look at those ceilings! There will also be a dark wood beam going in the middle of the ceiling. Can't wait for that! It'll be the perfect contrast!

Our trim builder made these awesome, custom built-ins that frame the fireplace and the windows on either side of the fireplace.

This shot is taken standing in the dining room looking into the family room. Love that we went with arches instead of the standard rectangular opening.

All the kitchen cabinets are in and during our meeting we counted up how many knobs and pulls we'd need for the entire house. One new addition since the last update is this reclaimed wood accent on the other side of the kitchen island! Once the countertop is in, it'll overall this area a bit, so it won't be AS prominent. Then barstools will sit in front of it. This accent brings lots of a texture to the space.

Continuing in the Modern Farmhouse vibe, we decided on shiplapping (it's a verb ;)) some accent walls throughout the house. Each child's bedroom has an accent wall of some kind. Here's one kid's room.

Here's another with wainscoting:

Out of the 5 kiddos who will live here, only one is a girl, so she's getting a pretty bathroom and a chandelier in her bedroom! Here's a sneak peek of the backsplash. The floors are hexagon tile as well, then we'll be pairing brass knobs and pulls to complete the girly look! So excited about this one.

This is the master bathroom. The cupboards are a really pretty gray / blue color, which you can barely see because they're covered in plastic since the painters are gearing up to paint the house soon. We did shiplap all the way up the wall behind the vanity, so we'll be hanging the mirrors on top of that with the sconces hung above the mirrors. The shiplap then continues around the whole bathroom, but only up 3/4 of the wall. On the top part of the wall, we'll be using Stongington Gray. It's the perfect gray/blue shade that is actually really close to the color of the square tile in the shower and floor tile design (next picture). To the right of the pic is the shower.

Here's a peek into the master shower (yep, stuck my camera through the hole in the plastic!) We did a darker charcoal gray grout to make it pop even more. The niche is done in the same pattern as the entire master bathroom floor. It's gorgeous and so farmhouse!

Looking to the left of the vanity is where the free standing tub will be. I'm going to have to go over to take a spa day in here!! ;)

Next up will be the faucets and fixtures, lighting going in, countertops being installed and finishing all the tile / backsplash work. Can't wait to update you with more soon!

Have a lovely Tuesday!
