If you follow us on Instagram you know we’ve been working on this new build for awhile with Strategic Builders . Let’s just say this reveal has been years in the making! It is a custom home that is very close to our hearts. The owners are truly salt of the earth kind of people and no one could deserve this beautiful home more. We are going to be revealing the home room by room but first we wanted to start with the background on the process.
When we started this home the modern farmhouse craze was just taking off. We love so many elements of this style; white brick, natural wood, wide planked oak floors, muted colors, barn doors and pops of black and brass. They feel current but also timeless. Here are a few of the mood boards we created to showcase our inspiration and ideas.
One thing that we are very proud to say of this home is that, although we put these plans together years ago, this home still feels like it was designed yesterday. We’re noticing that “classic” design is trending right now in interior design. That blend of old and new is so in right now so it makes it easy to design a space that feels like it could have been beautiful 100 years ago as well as 100 years from now. We do have a lot of patterned tile in the designs so we were a little worried we’d tire of them by the time they were installed. Luckily we still love them! The patterned tile trend isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
We drew inspiration from some of our favorite designers for the home.

We did the den in a floor to ceiling dark and moody blue like this image from Andrea Goldman.
This home also has a grand indoor basketball court. It was a bit of a challenge to figure out how to make an indoor basketball court feel like it belonged in a farmhouse. We love this image from MGa | Marcus Gleysteen Architects. It is the perfect blend of rustic and new.
Here are a few sneak peaks from the project!
You can see that the farmhouse style comes through with natural wood, texture and pops of black. All of the art in the home is original. We love how the colors in the art pull in the colors from the rug.
When building a house you need to consider the places to go big on detail and the places to scale back. We chose to keep it really simple in the stairwell with very intentional trim-work and lighting.
The interior design style of the den is very moody and sophisticated. We drew inspiration from an original painting our client loves.
Stay tuned for all of the reveals! We can’t wait to show you everything!
