A non color color scheme

Modern Farmhouse Style - - New House Old Soul -

“This house will stand the test of time−and it’s still got per­son­al­ity.” –de­signer Jen­nifer Tid­well

A pal­ette built of neu­trals—from whis­per white to warm gray—will never feel out of fash­ion.

QUIET COLOR. One strik­ing as­pect of Paige Delacey and Tom Keiser’s mod­ern farm­house is its serene, so­phis­ti­cated color scheme— a study in whites, grays, and black. “I still love this color pal­ette even a few years later,” in­te­rior de­signer Jen­nifer Tid­well says. “The mod­ern farm­house look is clas­sic and easy to love be­cause it’s so sim­ple and clean and not over­done.”

PAT­TERN TAKES THE STAGE. That pal­ette, which qui­eted the col­ors on most sur­faces, al­lowed tex­ture and pat­tern to pipe up in strate­gic spots—with­out fall­ing into fash­ion-vic­tim ter­ri­tory. The con­crete tile floors in the kids’ bath are an un­ex­pected de­light. And the her­ring­bone wall­pa­per in the en­try is a fre­quent con­ver­sa­tion piece for vis­i­tors.

Un­like older homes where rooms are small and sep­a­rate, this kitchen and liv­ing room sprawl into one large space that shares sun­shine from abun­dant win­dows and glass doors and a sim­i­lar color scheme. Time­less ma­te­ri­als get a trendy twist. For ex­am­ple, clas­sic mar­ble was cho­sen for a “wa­ter­fall” is­land— so-called be­cause coun­ter­tops and sides are slabs of the same stone mitered to­gether at the cor­ners. “It was mod­ern flair we wanted to add to the kitchen,” de­signer Jen­nifer Tid­well says.
