Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


If you’re looking for neutral interiors I recommend you to take a look at this post, but if you’re here to see a new-construction modern farmhouse with black exteriors, then you’re in the right place!

Recently built by Mike Stevens Homes (previously featured here & here – you need to see these house tours!), this dark modern farmhouse has so many great ideas that I’m sure will leave you feeling inspired, or at least, knowing what black paint color you should be using on your exterior!

Here, the builder share more details:


“This was actually the second house we built for this customer and was one of our favorite projects we’ve worked on in recent years. This is one of those rare clients that came to us with tons of great ideas and a very clear picture of what they wanted. Their previous house was a fairly traditional home with some unique New Orleans flair.

With this new home, they had an inspiration to go with darker colors with copper accents and unique architectural salvage pieces from Ricca Architectural Sales in New Orleans. They found a stock house plan and decided to modify the plan to meet their needs while transforming the exterior to match some inspiration photos they had found.

The interior had tons of great unique ideas and pieces. One of our favorites was the tile in the secondary bathroom. Other unique features were the tile surround around the kitchen island, and the jaw dropping Tecnogas Superiore range and vent hood. The kitchen layout, floating shelving, and tile backsplash really made an amazing statement right when you walk in the front door.”

    I love everything about this! Would you be able to tell me what size those front porch posts are? 6×6 or 8×8? And would you happen to know the stain color?
    Thank you!
