I absolutely love sharing talented homeowners such as Karmin of @littlehiddenforest on my “Beautiful Homes of Instagram” series and her Black and White Modern Farmhouse grabbed my attention the moment I saw the stunning and dramatic exterior. Neutral interiors with subtle decor complete this inspiring house tour, which I really hope you enjoy. Please keep reading to know more details about the building of this new Modern Farmhouse:
“Hello! I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Karmin from @littlehiddenforest. Home Bunch has been an incredible source of knowledge and inspiration since we began our custom home journey a few years ago and I am so honored to be a part of the “Beautiful Homes of Instagram” series!
A few years ago our little family of four stumbled upon a beautiful wooded neighborhood only a few minutes away from where we lived. The moment we entered we knew that it would be the perfect location to build the dream home to raise our children. It took 3 lot holds before we were led to our home land. The process began with our contractor, Brook, from Parent Custom Homes. We wanted to build a home around how we live our daily life with open and intentional spaces perfect for our entire family.
We have been living in our home for about seven months and we are truly enjoying every space we have created!
I define our home style as a modern mountain farmhouse. This is a home that is artfully ours and filled with all the elements that make home feel like home.”
“The exterior was a compromise between my husband and I! He has this thing for peeks and he was determined to have 7 to signify luck and harmony. I wanted white… He wanted contrast… I like straight lines… He likes curves! My favorite element is the black board and batten, which accents the long staircase window. When our forest is covered in snow it is truly magical!” – Karmin of @littlehiddenforest

“When it came to our kitchen we were looking for a timeless design with modern touches. A large island with maximum storage was the main goal. We cook and host frequently so we have every kitchen gadget imaginable. The kitchen is truly the heart of our home and we spend most of our time surrounding the kitchen island. Keeping the kitchen sink out of the island was a must-have for us. We eat and laugh around the island and didn’t want a pile of dirty dishes between our laughter!” – Karmin of @littlehiddenforest
