We often see TV shows transforming homes that are falling apart into dream homes, but that’s not so hard to do when you have a big team working against the time to show the beautiful results. Don’t get me wrong, I am a HUGE fan of some of these shows and some of them can certainly be trend setters, but today I want to showcase a builder and designer that could envision a new modern farmhouse on a really narrow lot in a real fixer-upper neighborhood. That’s the type of work I can really admire. Keep reading to know more:
With each home I build I try to incorporate current trends and timeless style while staying some what true to the style of other homes in the neighborhood. I call this project “The Urban Farmhouse.” This new construction home is located in the city along side Italianate homes. This home is only 15 ft. wide so keeping the floor plan open and the design as as light and bright as possible was very important. We kept the exterior style of the home similar to the other homes on this block but we added the board and batten siding, white exterior paint, and black windows to give it an updated and on trend look. We made the front porch low to the ground to also give the home some southern charm. The roof is a flat TPO roof similar to the other homes on this block.”
This newly-built white urban farmhouse features white siding black vinyl windows, black metal roof, black TPO roof a black front door.

We live in a historic southern neighborhood so I wanted to keep the furniture traditional yet modern. I think the neutral colors, soft textures, and clean lines marry both styles well.

We kept the floors light. We used white oak with a clear finish throughout the home.
It was very important to me that we kept this house affordable but I wanted it to feel luxurious. I used a granite that mimics marble to get that same look and upgraded the lights and cabinet pulls. The polished nickel coloring of the lights balance the black of the pulls to make the kitchen feel fresh but warm and inviting.

The floor tile was the inspiration for this room. The half bath is always one of my favorite places to create a show piece in the home. It’s a small space so you can uses really expensive materials without breaking the bank. We upgraded the tile to cement and used a fun vanity to give it more of a custom look.

I am a beach girl at heart. I see these railing in a lot of coastal homes and I just thought it would be a cool feature that would go well with the front elevation of the home.

Again trying to blend trendy and modern with timeless and elegant, I opted for a white vanity and did a herringbone pattern with the black floor tile. I used a polished nickel mirror with rounded edges to soften to the space and incorporate some modern touches.
