A modern farmhouse by Simo Design

The more we feature "modern farmhouses" the more I think this is my ideal home. The perfect blend of modern and rustic in a gorgeous country setting so the house is bathed in sunlight all day long with tree branches casting shadows and providing greenery through every window. This one is definitively on the modern side compared to most we have shared here and I do love some rustic elements but that glorious backyard oasis, tile floor in the kitchen and massive master bedroom and ensuite make up for it. By the mega talented architecture/design firm Simo Design. (More here!)

A modern organic home in California

This house in Carmel, California is an absolutely stunning work of art inside and out. It is modern but so warm and organic because of all the beautiful wood used extensively throughout every space. This is every mid century modern lovers dream as it suits furniture of that era so perfectly. Designed by Dirk Denison Architects.

Parisian chic

The coolest apartments are always in Paris. This one is by Monaco interior architect team Humbert & Poyet. A stunningly simple fireplace, graphic artwork, classic furnishings by the likes of Eero Saarinen, Mies van der Rohe and Serge Mouille combined with tall ceilings and to-die-for moldings make this apartment in Le Marais a total dream. (Check out another one of their projects here)

A 1400s Tuscan farmhouse gets a modern makeover

Take an ancient stone farmhouse in Tuscany - add some subtle modern additions then furnish it with some art deco style furniture with accents of brass and some glamorous glass light fixtures. What you end up with is one of the dreamiest homes I have ever seen. Via Bo Bedre, photos by Monica Spezia.

House 66 by Izen Architecture

I have been following Toronto-based Izen Architecture on Instagram for a while now and have quickly become a big fan. Then one day Brenda Izen emailed with photos of her home that she designed and had built for her, her husband and their 3 young children. Modern fabulousness! Here's the scoop in Brenda's words: It was originally a 1950s bungalow, topped up in the 80s, with a terrible floor plan and generic finishes. I leveraged my site experience and formal training to transform it into my dream home. I define my style as a "warm modernism": natural materials in warm tones, cozy furniture, large fireplaces - really a place to kick of your shoes at the end of the day. Many of my clients are skeptical when they picture themselves living in modern spaces, always assuming that contemporary architecture translates into sterile, uncomfortable and unliveable spaces. House 66 challenges that misconception. I also always place a huge emphasis on the function of a home, and especially its ability to change with family needs. I am opposed to hallways, formal sitting rooms, and other spaces that are not used in day-to-day life. House 66 embodies these two philosophies of design. It has lots of large windows and clean lines. It is bright, open, inviting, and functional. Without the restraint of client demands I was able to take my vision as far as my budget would let me. Of course I had to pull some mad moves to stretch my budget to the max, such as using cut-offs from other projects or being flexible with timing so that I could coordinate trades. The end result is cost-conscious but rich in its palette.
