Happy summer, my wonderful friends! I am so happy this special time of the year has finally arrived. We live in a beautiful part of the county, surrounded by the ocean and have many shingle beach houses as neighbors… this time is, by far, waited and dreamed for, especially after having to endure long and cold winters (like the last one!).
We’re enjoying the first weekend of the summer by playing basketball outside with our kids and going to the beach afterwards. Slowing down is beyond necessary, not only for our mind and soul, but also for us to make good memories with the people that matter the most.
Talking about slowing down, today’s “Beautiful Homes of Instagram” is showcasing a recently built urban farmhouse by Rosewood Custom Builders. Here, Stephanie Reed, Rosewood‘s in-house Interior Designer, explain more about this inspiring home:
“Home should make your heart happy,” our client always said. That was her “sanity check” as she went through the lengthy design and selection process for this modern farmhouse home in Dallas. “If it makes me smile, I’m going to do it.”
Lakewood is an area that makes a lot of families happy. It’s a pocket of Dallas that makes you forget you’re in Dallas – it feels like you’re in Colorado. Homeowners Ginger and Jody chose the area because they love the community feel. “Everyone in Lakewood is always out and about. They’re on their bikes, they’re walking their dogs, they’re in the front yard with their kids – it’s a happy place.”
As for their beautiful home – Ginger and Jody did some soul searching before they landed on a style that was uniquely theirs. Ginger is a country girl who grew up in rural Mississippi. Jody is a city boy – born and raised in Dallas – who loves things to be clean and orderly. Cue “modern farmhouse.”
For a client who makes design decisions on “feeling”- the aesthetic of this home came together flawlessly. We focused on keeping everything fresh and clean but still warm and inviting. That meant mixing a lot of materials – cooler tones with natural wood and brass fixtures; traditional elements with contemporary accents – we were very focused on balance. Everywhere you turn is another “moment.” From the tile accent wall in the powder room and the glam wet bar area, to the masculine study and the “Welcome” chalkboard on the open shelves in the kitchen – every moment matters, and every moment feels like home.”
What a curb-appeal! Notice the front porch and the black planters contrasting with the white brick exterior. The exterior paint color is “Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace”.
Raised planters give a modern look to this home, not to mention they’re more practical, easier to maintain and easier on your back!
The front door is made out of steel and glass and it was custom-made for this home.
An accent wall, featuring a sleek concrete tile, creates a division from the foyer and the dining room. Ahead, you see a bar featuring grey cabinetry and the same concrete tile.
This dining room is perfect for this home! I absolutely love the black steel windows, the architectural staircase and the modern, yet welcoming, decor.
Paint color is Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace.
The staircase features wood treads and metal and cable railing.
How inspiring is this kitchen?! The rustic barnwood shiplap certainly brings a rustic feel to the space.
