Loving the modern farmhouse!

Love love LOVE modern American farmhouses! So much character and charm. Much more so than the homes we build here in Australia. The farmhouse is a quintessential American feature and a tradition of southern living in the states. I would love to see more of this style of home on our shores – the homes look so cozy and warm! Farmhouses have the perfect blend of tradition and modern comforts. I have seen them popping up in Australia though. A few have been saved to my “one day” book!

Here are some modern Farmhouses that caught my eye –

What features define the modern farmhouse?

• Generally Farmhouses have gabled roofs, with double or opposite pitches.

• Use of natural materials such as stone, timber, cladding to add warmth and character. Aluminium windows are a must.

• Lighter, neutral tones are most popular, but as you can see from the pictures above, darker colours are quite striking.

• Wide wrap around verandahs, feature windows, patio and porches are all common features of Farmhouses.

• The roof is constructed from shingles and chimneys are exposed.

    I’m so with you!! Australian architecture is the pits compared to the states!! Love this style. I don’t know how we moved from the gorgeous California bungalow style to what we are doing now! This is much more visually appealing compared to the flat front boxes we are knocking up here!
