Just wanted to share these beautiful images that have been circulating the blogosphere (thanks for Black Eiffel and Simple Lovely for sharing them too!). The Canadian House and Home 2012 Showhouse is stunning! The design of this modern farmhouse just goes to show that a clean aesthetic doesn't have to be stark to feel modern and urban.
Gorgeous exterior! I love the natural elements of stone and the lovely green landscaping with the metal roof and window frames.
Design credit goes to LR Design Study for the interior design and Murakami Design for the archectectual design. The PCM Project and Construction Management Group did a killer job executing the design too.
The family room has a palette of rich neutrals full of textures and variety of materials. I especially love the kilim rug and poufs (from West Elm).
Sofa is from Ralph Lauren, coffee table from Michel Zelnik and drapery fabric from Kravet.
Great grey-washed entry table with a few sparse glazed urns and a large sepia toned photograph. Love the equestrian touch!
That door.... it gets me.
One of my very favorite rooms in the space! That chandelier is amazing (Currey and Co).
Table, slipcovered end chairs, Boo Boo & Lefty; side chairs,woven urns, ferns, wall cabinet, Cocoon Furnishings; artwork by Elsha Leventis, In2art Gallery; demilune chest, Absolutely Inc.; mirror, Elte.
The clean white marble with sooty black lower cabinets and no uppers is such a modern feel.
Love the faux Bertoia Chairs and Sarenin table.
The family room off from the kitchen is small, but soft and inviting.
Coffee table, West Elm; floor lamps, Pottery Barn; side chairs, TV easel, Elizabeth Interiors; side chairs' fabric, Designer Fabrics; sofa, Stacaro.
Again, I'm totally enamored with these doors. The exterior glass door system is also incredible- so much natural light!
They are from NanaWall Systems; console, Crate & Barrel; artwork by Karen Whylie, Art Interiors.
Vibrant royal and clemintine colored study is so bright, but still works with the natural architectural elements.
Sofa are from Crate and Barrel, armchairs from Coccoon Furnishings; coffee table, Hollace Cluny; throw pillow fabrics, Lee Jofa showroom; artwork by Annette Kraft van Ermel, In2art Gallery; metal doors, Bliss Nor-Am Doors & Windows.
Beautiful bedroom with seagrass rug, clean headboard (Elizabeth Interiors), industrial chandelier, and ghost chair paired with a farm house style desk.
Bedding quilts, throws, stump stools, chair, West Elm; floor lamps, clock, trunks, accent pillows, wire baskets, Pottery Barn; throw pillow, HomeSense; area rug, Elte;
Kid room is colorful and bright and still in line with the rest of the house.
I could totally live in this house. Could you? Too sparse? Not enough color? Too much?
