A gorgeous modern dream home in Illinois with a farmhouse twist

modern-farmhouse-exterior

This modern dream home was designed by Studio 1 Architects in collaboration with Amy Storm & Company, located in Wheaton, Illinois. The homeowner’s original vision was a modern farmhouse, however, as the design progressed, the emphasis became far more on the modern part of that equation.

Throughout the interior, the palette is primarily black, white, and gray, which may sound basic, but the designer dialed up the drama with a few unexpected flourishes.

Above: In the office, the designer gave it a more feminine appeal. It has the feel of a retreat rather than an office. Custom cabinets keep everything organized in this space. Floating shelves allow the owner to show off her personalized accessories.
