Dream Home: A Modern Farmhouse Gem in Canada

Today’s dream home comes from a design firm that I admire, Muskoka Living Interiors. No one makes lake-side living look more enticing. If you aren’t familiar with their work, you are in for a treat. I’ve shared them before on Instagram and in this post, Drool Worthy Lake House Exteriors, and today I am excited to feature their vision of the Modern Farmhouse. It’s a soft layering of lux textiles, fresh white walls, edgy black accents, all mixed with a subtle coastal vibe. Take a look at this beautiful home.


Black, white, and blush are always a beautiful color palette. The pale pink softens the crisp black and white and brings out the warmth of the raw wood detail of the fireplace. Look at all the pretty woodwork throughout the space–herringbone floors, the cool pattern above the windows, and the diagonal lines in the barn door. The patterns are mimicked in the mudcloth pillows for an interesting layered look.


This kitchen is so good. It’s a perfect example of some big trends we’ve been seeing in 2018. We love the patterned tile, two-toned cabinets, and flat-front cabinet doors.


The natural wood floor and ceiling adds a lot of rustic warmth to the space, while the black doors and railings add depth. The white Aerin Mill Ceiling Light pops.

Chevron patterns in the woodwork are like built in artwork. Little else is needed for interest, but I do love the oversized photo and brass mobile chandelier.

Layers of patterned blues have a coastal vibe and hint at the water of Lake Ontario nearby. The pink headboard is a unexpected fun pop of color.

Although the interior is pretty and inviting, its this exterior that I am dreaming of. It feels like a fresh take on a classic with timeless appeal. Love the white wood siding, shake roof, railing detail, steel-frame windows, and copper accents.
