5 Favorites :: Pinterest

Hello Monday! The start of a new week can be both refreshing and overwhelming. This week I’m planning a couple bathroom renovations, our backyard in being landscaped and the kiddos are busy with summer activities.  Although it will be a busy week, I’m thankful for a break from a heat wave we’ve been experiencing.

To start the week off on an inspiring note, I’m sharing a few of my favorite pins on Pinterest as of late. As you’ll see, recently I’ve been pulled to lots of soothing neutrals and pale shades of pink.

Elements of Modern Farmhouse Style

The simple, clean-lined, practical design of the modern farmhouse is appealing and trending. A wraparound porch, standing metal seam roof and industrial lighting is one quick way to spot one from the street. But, the rustic, yet refine style goes beyond the exterior. Inside plank wooden flooring and exposed reclaimed beams are often offsite by crisp white walls. In fact, the modern farmhouse color palette is typically very simple: black, white, and gray. Classic stripe and check patterns are also featured throughout the home including throw pillows, wallpaper and tile work. Other farmhouse elements often found are sliding barn doors, apron sinks and ship-lap siding. I’ve rounded up a few images of different rooms through a house that are great examples of modern farmhouse style.

Kitchen Trend :: Waterfall Countertop

neolith marble waterfall countertop // kitchen island

It’s a kitchen trend I’ve seen grow over the past few years. A waterfall countertop is a a great solution to finish off the ends of cabinets while adding a modern, decorative touch. The clean-lined look is something I was drawn to and included in my own kitchen renovation. Originally the second island was suppose to seat two to three and have storage on the opposite side. As the kitchen process evolved, I revised the plan to seat four by removing the under counter cabinetry. The island basically evolved into a parsons style table when I added the waterfall countertop in ultra durable marble patterned neolith. It’s such a heavy piece that it’s actually a movable table, not a set island. The finished piece is pictured above and posted on Instagram a few weeks back.

I’m so happy with the finished look, I wanted to share with you some of my inspiration…

In this kitchen designed by Ashley Garrison, Ashley Garrison Interiors Inc. features a center island wrapped in carrara marble – the perfect stone to contrast the warm driftwood cabinetry.

Isn’t this kitchen island stunning? The marble pattern on the turned counter really steals the show in this kitchen.

Here’s another beautiful kitchen (designed by Leslie Cotter Interiors) featuring a marble waterfall countertop used to cover the island. The marble edge is less chunky than the previous example.

This sleek kitchen island design by Liz Hand Woods balances warm wood tones with limestone waterfall countertops. So chic!

This large, square island in kitchen designed by Kelly Hinchman of Studio H Design Group allows for some serious storage. The waterfall edge countertop in all white (perhaps quartz) adds to the sleek, modern feel.

Concrete is another material that looks great wrapped around cabinets. I love it here paired with white cabinets and floors.
