Modern Farmhouse

I am still amazed at how the modern/farmhouse style trend is keeping alive. The only difference in our clients taste is weather they go more farmhouse or more modern. This months feature trends toward the modern flair with accents of farmhouse. I have found out through business and through my own style and habits that the older we get, we want to simplify our lives with less clutter, less chunk and less stress. Today’s styles mimic this exact feeling that we all seem to sought after,

This months feature brings us to the Pine Hills in Plymouth. A rather large community that started around the year 2000. A beautiful community off exit 3 on route 3, homes range from condos, cottage style, custom homes and apartments. They have their own golf courses, fire department, restaurants and shopping. It’s a destination, lifestyle community that is nothing short of spectacular. People from around the state and country either come to live here fulltime or during the summer. If you have not experienced it’s beauty and ambiance, take the time to drive there and visit.

Today’s look as I said earlier is simplified for our busy lives so when it comes to this kitchen, simple was infused into out Modern/Farmhouse/Shaker theme. Appliances were carefully placed for cooking and entertaining. It is so important to focus on the way people live and move around their home. A large Sub Zero wine fridge was put in on the end of the kitchen, facing the table area. A bar small bar sink was added to the island for prep when working at the island. A beautiful stainless chimney hood was placed above the cook top to give the area a modern/industrial feel. Chimney hoods are popular these days for that clean/ less bulky look. Ceilings are usually 9 feet or taller these days so double high transom wall cabinets top off the kitchen to the ceiling, scattered with glass doors. The cabinets selected for this kitchen were Omega’s Full Access cabinetry in their Plainfield door style in a Pearl Opaque finish. The island was Omega’s Dove Opaque soft grey finish to give a little accent to the room. The cabinets are simple, classic and airy.

The counters chosen were Cambria’s Quartz material in their Dunmore color on the l-shape and their dramatic marble looking Britannica color on the island in a waterfall effect. I love the way the veins carry down the sides of the waterfall ends, giving it a dramatic feeling in the room. It speaks modern and clean loudly. Cabinets on the backside of the island were added under the overhang for those extra items needed to be stored in the kitchen, but out of the way of the working area. The beautiful farmhouse pendent lights chosen accent the modern island perfectly.

Bringing a kitchen together takes time, but is so much fun and rewarding. Starting with the taste that you want the room to reflect is a must. It’s what brings the puzzle together and ends up the way you want it to look and function. This months feature was a fun project, but most important, it part of the new stories in the lives of our client in the Pine Hills!

Bon Appetit!
