Dream Home: A Fresh Modern Farmhouse in Chicago

We stumbled across a beautiful modern farmhouse this week that we are excited to share. Located on the North Shore of Lake Michigan in Chicago, the home is a stunner with white painted brick, metal roofing, black frame windows, and a crisp black and white interior. Enjoy today’s dream home then browse the whole series for tons of beautiful inspiration!

How beautiful is this timeless kitchen? White cabinetry, slab marble, and a skylight that floods the space with light. Dark wood floors ground the space and add pretty contrast. Woven chairs and a reclaimed wood table add a rustic vibe to the modern space.



White shiplap and details like this built-in chalkboard create fun farmhouse vibe. Dark stone floors are a practical choice in the mudroom but so pretty with their lux polished vibe.


Master Suite


The black and white color scheme in the master bedroom and bath feels simple and serene. The statement light in the bedroom grounds the high ceilings while drawing the eye to the architectural details.


Living Space

Dark woods, a stone fireplace, and industrial fans create a rustic warmth in this cozy space perfect for lounging.



Trough sink and cement tile are two modern farmhouse staples that we love. For more farmhouse ideas read 7 Elements of the Modern Farmhouse.

Outdoor Living

The unique footprint of the house creates courtyards in front and back perfect for taking advantage of good weather when it comes. We love the rocking chairs on the covered front patio and the outdoor dining space for summer barbecues.
