20 Inspiring Modern Farmhouse Exteriors

In the early ’90s, our family was blessed to be

able to live in an authentic 19th century farmhouse

which had been very gently and lovingly updated.

(I had an incredible walk-in closet with a gorgeous,

full-size window in it which made the space so happy!)

We kept the decor very spare.

High ceilings, charming dormers, and gorgeous

antique doors and trim were a pleasure to live with!

Before the farmhouse, we lived in a condo

on a bluff with no green areas so I’ll never forget

that first day in the house when our toddler

ran to the window and pointed outside,

exclaiming, “PARK, MAMA! PARK!”

And I joyfully responded,

“That’s your YARD, baby! It’s YOURS.”

 My husband constructed a wonderful

sandbox in the farmhouse’s big backyard, which

truly felt like our own private park paradise.

These days, we call home a 20th century

house that looks a bit like a modern farmhouse.

When I posted this image of its exterior

on IG the other day, some of you thought

it looked like more of a California house

than something from the Midwest.

While there is nothing quite like an authentic,

vintage farmhouse exterior, it’s exciting to see

new interpretations represented around the

country borrow the best details and

craftsmanship from the past, while

adding practical and fresh updates.

 

Here are a few of my favorites!

 Meet me at the finish line, and let me

know which one is your favorite and why!

Have a favorite modern farmhouse
exterior from above?

p.s.
My keyboard is puddled with tears after
telling you that little story at the
beginning about our son at the farmhouse.
That son is now about the age I was then!
As I age, I’m getting nostalgic and so much
more tender…is that true for you too?

Peace to you right where you are.

    All of these are lovely, but Brooke and Steve Giannetti's home in Ojai is my favorite. You must like it too, because I think I saw at least four or five images of it on this post. I could move right into that home. Not that they would let me, but I would if I could.

      Patina Farm is in a class of its own–all of the craftsmanship and classicism! Thanks for adding to the beauty, Victoria! 🙂

    My favorite style. Probably like the more rural looking ones. Loved your story of your son. September always reminds me of going to sign my son up for kindergarten. He clutched the sides of his car seat,his eyes so wide,slightly scared and ask, "Is this college Mom?" Makes my heart ache. Denise

      Oh, Denise! You totally get it, don't you? My heart aches at your story too–it's that same innocence and a moment when love is so strong and palpable you think your heart will burst. Thanks for sharing this. xox

    They are all beautiful in their own way. I would move into any one of them.
