Hello, my wonderful friends! How are you today? I hope things are good and you and yours are feeling healthy. A huge snow storm just ended where we live and the sun is shining, making the huge amount of snow sparkle on the many pine trees I see from my window.
Today is definitely a happy day because I get to share another inspiring talented homeowner on our “Beautiful Homes of Instagram” series! Carli Rodger of Citizen Design Co. and @citizendesignco is not only the homeowner of this Modern Farmhouse Family Home but she is also an incredibly talented Canadian interior designer. Keep reading to know more details about her home. Also, Carli shared some really useful details and dimensions and I would kindly ask you to make sure to give her a follow on Instagram or visit her website. I am just so grateful for all of the insights she’s sharing to help and inspire you!
“My husband Mike and I both grew up in the Prairies. He’s a good ol’ farm boy and I am the typical city type girl. We started dating when we both lived in Calgary, Alberta after meeting at a good friend’s wedding. We lived in the big city for about 12 years before relocating to our roots in Saskatchewan to be closer to family. We have 3 little citizens – hence how our company came about. ; ) We built our first home in Cochrane Alberta in 2010 and thoroughly enjoyed the design and selection process. From there I decided to get my Bachelor of Science degree with hopes to start my own Design + Build company. Fast forward 6 years, our third baby was born and we relocated to Saskatchewan and started the house hunt. 4 bedrooms above grade was extremely difficult to find and so we decided we had no choice but to build! With full intentions of this home being our forever home – we just loved the process so much – that we are about to do it all over again!” – Carli Rodger of Citizen Design Co.
“Everything just felt so right, we put in an offer on the largest lot we could find with a southwest facing backyard in a quiet neighbourhood and started the build process. Our home features 5 bedrooms & 4.5 bathrooms. Each bedroom has its own walk-in closet and/or ensuite bathroom. The upper floor has the laundry room located right off the owners’ suite which is so convenient for keeping up on all those loads of clothes. I loved that every room had more than one way in and out, making for some fun games of tag and hide and seek.” – Carli Rodger of Citizen Design Co.
“With the purchase of a lot in the burbs, we went to town designing from scratch a completely functional Modern Farmhouse plan for our family of 5.” – Carli Rodger of Citizen Design Co.
