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.

AERIN Collection for Williams Sonoma Home

Spring has sprung and so too has a new collection by Aerin Lauder for Williams Sonoma Home. The AERIN Collection is inspired by the Lauder’s iconic oceanfront home in Palm Beach and blurs the lines between indoor and out. From lighting to dinnerware, the AERIN Collection is beautifully elegant and effortlessly stylish. It was hard to narrow down, but here are my five favorites . . .

Design Reveal :: Black and White Powder Room

One of the spaces that was renovated during our last construction project was the powder room. It sits toward the from of the house and is in parallel with the staircase – making the room long and narrow. It has been decorated several times since 1940 and the last being in the late 60s. The blue toilet and sink coordinated with the wallpaper which featured cherubs. Gold wall sconces with crystals flanked a mirror that was removed before we bought the home. Shear drapery that was full of dust covered a large window. All of it needed to go.

The space was completely gutted and re-plumbed. From head to toe the room was transformed into a light and airy space. Check it out now…

:: AFTER ::

The wallpaper – Pajarita (black) by Laundry Studio for Hygge & West features whimsical birds and was my first design selection for the bathroom. The delicate, yet energetic pattern was inspired by the various murals of birds seen throughout Mexico City. I also love that birds symbolize freedom. Black concrete hexagon tiles and a steel mirror were paired with the wallpaper. To flank the mirror, I selected understated, yet classic wall sconces. A top-down Roman shade in white match-stick was selected to bring in the light and provide privacy. The black and white ju ju hat hanging above the toilet is just plain fun and a nod to the birds. The blue sink was the perfect scale for the room, so I had it re-painted in white to match the new toilet by Toto. The faucet hardware needed to be replaced, but was able to reuse the original toilet paper and towel rack hardware.
