The process of choosing finishes for this particular modern farmhouse design, I have to admit, was beyond fun. I knew these clients were going to allow me to do some unique things in order to incorporate the “modern” into this modern farmhouse design. I set out to look for finishes that were rustic, yet elegant, modern yet warm, masculine yet comforting. I found so many excellent new resources for cement tiles, such as Cle Tile, where I found this fantastic Radar Hexagon tile for the powder room. White grout will make this absolutely pop.
For the laundry room, which is directly across the way, I went simpler but kept the consistency of the hexagon tile with this cement tile from The Tile Shop.
For the laundry room, we stuck with a simple white shaker style cabinet.
For the master bathroom, the clients wanted a more clean, modern, spa like feel. So I found a beautiful grey porcelain tile, also from The Tile Shop. It has a simple, linen look. I coordinated that with a gorgeous grey glass tile for the shower, and grey penny rounds for the shower pan and under the modern soaking tub.
In the entryway and mudroom, we used a fantastic. medium format dark slate. This too will get treated with white grout for a very unique, modern take on this rustic tile.
For the bar area and kitchen we selected a two-toned combination of recessed panel cabinet in a medium grey on the perimeter with black on the island. The perimeter countertops will remain a soft, off white while the island will be treated to a gorgeous quartz with grey, brown, bronze and beige veining.

For the two guest bathrooms, the clients wanted each to very unique and spa like, in it’s own way. For the larger of the two, we selected a river stone shower pan and coordinated it with a gorgeous beige extra large format tile, also in beige, from The Tile Shop. We straight stacked the tile to give it that modern feel. It was coordinated with a fantastic charcoal and rust porcelain floor tile that adds so much warmth to the space.
The floor was always going to be a white oak with a natural finish. Based on that we coordinated the woods and colors of the new cabinetry in the bathrooms. The large guest bathroom has a custom designed, custom made, white oak floating vanity. As you can see, we eventually added brass light fixtures from Circa Lighting and black, wall mounted faucets and cabinet hardware.
The third guest bathroom was treated to some shiplap, which was painted a dark charcoal color. The floor tile is also a charcoal 12×24 ceramic. The semi-custom vanity and floating shelf is by Decora Cabinets. We did a simple, white subway tile and accentuated it with black grout for contrast. The light fixtures, by Restoration Hardware, are in a bronze finish.
