I’ve been drooling over modern farmhouse architecture a little while now. Don’t get me wrong, I love my house, but if I could give it an exterior makeover I’d love to apply the modern farmhouse look. It is the effortless mix of modern and farmhouse to create a simple and comfortable design.
Pitched metal roofs are paired with simple wooden siding. Lot of straight lines finish off the windows and covered porches. Patio’s, columns and chimneys are finished off with stone and slate to create this look. If I was building I could see myself going in this direction. White siding, black window trim, slate patios and walkways. All things I love. A few tweaks here and there to an existing home would do the job as well! If you are redoing your siding go white and vertical instead of horizontal. Replace your windows with simpler silhouettes or paint your existing window trim black. Simple lighting in a modern industrial style adds to the style. Stain your front door instead of painting it, or if painting, choose a fresh bright color. Bring some country to your urban space or some a modern feel to your rural home!
