Dream Home: A White Modern Farmhouse in California

Today’s dream home shows why the Modern Farmhouse look remains a favorite.  The clean modern design feels crisp and soothing, while comforting farmhouse touches add a welcoming softness. Set amongst beautiful trees in Los Altos, California, this house is a beauty. Take a look.

Crisp white contrasts with a metal roof and black-frame windows on the pretty exterior. We love how white paint pops against the fresh greens of the landscaping.

All those exterior windows flood the interior with natural light. White paint looks especially beautiful in sun-drenched interiors. So fresh and airy. Warm woods and black accents keep the space from feeling stark.

We love the metal mix of these modern lanterns. We used the same one in the dining nook of our Villa Bonita Kitchen.

This double-sided fireplace makes the space. So pretty. It’s a great way to define two spaces without closing off the space. The beautiful white modern candelabra chandelier creates drama against the black shiplap.

Black and brass is another classic farmhouse vibe that is done perfectly in this space. Black penny tile and black grout create a sophisticated modern background while brass adds a little shine.

Beautiful, right? If you love the modern farmhouse look be sure to browse our farmhouse posts here.

    Hi Becki,

    My wife and I can not choose the perfect white for our home here in Florida. We are going for a modern farmhouse look and need the perfect white for all the sunshine.

    We love this look, the white looks warm , crisp and not too bright. Could you tell us the color you chose?

    Thank you,
