Time for another reveal from the #smimodernfarmhouse! Today, I am sharing the kitchen and dining room from my latest new construction project. You can read more about how this project came together, and see pictures of the Entry and Family Room, by hopping over to my previous post. 🙂
When designing this kitchen, I knew I wanted to keep things simple and fresh. My clients had 2 requests, a large island with lots of seating and some open shelving to display their white dishes. I was happy to accommodate them.
The design of the kitchen centered around my desire to have a two toned island. I designed the island to have a center base, with shiplap detail. I wanted that section of the island to be painted white. It was important to me to add some stained wood into the design of the kitchen to add warmth. One way I did this was to accent the island with stained “X” end panels.
The white shiplap kitchen hood also got a dose of stained wood and the open shelving was made of stained wood as well. I love how the warm wood elements pop against the white shiplap and painted brick backsplash!
Speaking of that backsplash…the painted white brick is my favorite! It adds so much texture and interest and is perfect for a home in the Modern Farmhouse style. The brass sconces add the perfect amount shine, while the matte black hardware provides a bold contrast, which mimics the contrast of the black windows and white walls in the home.
We topped the kitchen off with gorgeous, easy to maintain, marble look, quartz countertops. We used an extra thick 6cm quartz, with a mitered edge, to give the countertops a substantial look. My favorite feature may be the black silgranit, farmhouse sink from Blanco. The black sink, with brass faucet, set agains the white countertops and cabinetry is an absolute showstopper!
The dining nook is the perfect spot for my clients’ family to sit and enjoy a meal or for the kids to do their homework. The nook is surrounded by beautiful large windows, which showcase the breathtaking views of the Utah mountains.
Shiplap wraps the dining nook walls and adds architectural interest to the space. The traditional farmhouse table and black chairs are both beautiful and kid friendly. The light fixture I chose for over the dining table is my absolute favorite!! Such a perfect piece for this space!!
This kitchen and dining nook feel comfortable and inviting. I am so pleased with how it all came together. My greatest joy comes from being able to envision my clients’ family and friends gathered together in the heart of their home. I hope you all love it as much as I do! 🙂
