A 100 year old renovated farmhouse

I wanted to share another delicious project by the super talented folks of Vancouver design firm PlaidFox Studio. Bet you'll want to move to a farmhouse by the time you get to the end of this post! This 100-year-old farmhouse underwent a complete head-to-toe renovation. Teaming up with Home Star BC we painstakingly modernized the crumbling farmhouse while maintaining its original west coast charm. The only new addition to the home was the kitchen eating area, with its swinging dutch door, patterned cement tile and antique brass lighting fixture. The wood-clad walls throughout the home were made using the walls of the dilapidated barn on the property. Incorporating a classic equestrian aesthetic within each room while still keeping the spaces bright and livable was one of the projects many challenges. The Master bath - formerly a storage room - is the most modern of the home's spaces. Herringbone white-washed floors are partnered with elements such as brick, marble, limestone and reclaimed timber to create a truly eclectic, sun-filled oasis. Overall, the project proves that bolder, more colourful strokes allow a home to possess what so many others lack: a personality!!

A New York farmhouse by Kara Mann

Kara Mann - always a bit ballsy, and bit dramatic, a bit of glam...even when designing a farmhouse. A little something unexpected here and there that always catches my eye and makes me admire her style that much more. She painted the beautiful floorboards in the kitchen black, and to that I say HELLS YEAH!!!

A horse farm in Brazil

WHOA. This may be one of the most beautiful locations we have ever featured on the blog. Let me introduce you to this little slice of heaven. This is a horse farm, located in Minas Gerais, Brazil and designed by architect Gisele Taranto. It was positioned at the top of the property in order to take advantage of the view of the lake and all that other gorgeousness surrounding it (*GASP* those views!!!). There is a main house, a guest house, a leisure area with swimming pool, a chapel and the administrator's house. The project utilized as much local materials, such as treated eucalyptus for the house structure, and labor as possible. Everything was designed to be easy to maintain, so nothing could be complicated. It is absolutely breathtaking.

Modern farmhouse

From its traditional facade all the way up those stairs to the colourful attic room this house is the perfect balancing act. Farmhouse yet modern living, the crisp bite of white and the deep moody greys, parent and kid friendly. Casually elegant, not at all stuffy. It's fresh and fun and perfect for a young family.
