If you love touring designer show houses, I have a treat for you today! Back in the fall of 2019, I visited the Philadelphia Magazine’s Design Home in Villanova, Pennsylvania. For some reason, I never shared the photos on my blog…so today I’m doing just that. Better late than never, right? Hopefully, you’ll enjoy all the interior design inspiration as much as I did!
Design Inspiration – Modern Farmhouse Tour Part 1:
Yes, I’m breaking this up into two parts. Since I took way too many pictures, today I’m going to share the exterior and first floor and next week I’ll share the 2nd floor. After all, I don’t want to overwhelm you with all the gorgeous home design ideas!
Exterior of the Design Home 2019:
With a combination of rustic stone, white siding and black shutters, this breathtaking 7,300 square foot home mixes traditional with modern style.
From the long driveway leading up to the home to the grand entrance, it’s obvious they covered every detail.
Interior Design Inspiration:
In the foyer, the interior designer carried the black accents inside to the impressive staircase.
Across the foyer, a set of doors open to a covered patio…so perfect for entertaining.
Not only does the patio overlook the backyard, but it also includes a fun bar seating area at the kitchen windows.
Speaking of the kitchen…
This massive kitchen with two islands is just waiting for a party! From the top of the line appliances to the high end finishes, this kitchen is a showstopper!
As you can see, the windows overlook the covered patio area. Yes, those large windows open to connect the indoor bar to the outdoor bar. Martini anyone?
From the left kitchen island, you can see into the stylish dining room.
Contemporary lighting, dark walls, modern art and two wine refrigerators…truly a dining room designed for entertaining.
On the other side of the kitchen, you’ll find a modern farmhouse style family room with a bold, black fireplace.
And off the family room, you can walk right out to a screened porch with another fireplace as a focal point.
From this angle, you can see how the two rooms connect.
Tiled floors and outdoor carpet keep this indoor/outdoor living space easy to maintain.
On the other side of the house, you’ll find a den with dramatic black walls and a bit of sparkle. So much interior design inspiration!
And what’s a den without a liquor tray on the coffee table? I told you this house is made for entertaining.
More drama in the powder room with the black and white birch tree wallpaper.
Tucked away in a closet, they set up a wrapping station. Seriously, who couldn’t use one of these rooms?!
Down a back hall off the kitchen, there’s a small back kitchen/pantry area.
With windows that face the driveway, you can keep track of who’s arriving home.
Yes, even the garage is beautiful with the white siding, farmhouse lighting and dormers above.
But that’s not the only garage… Diagonal from the two car garage, you’ll find another garage that they turned into a basketball court! What sports loving kid wouldn’t love this?!!
And between those garages, there’s a lovely courtyard and back entrance. Not as grand as the front of the house but equally as welcoming!
Well, that wraps up the tour of the exterior and first floor!
Be sure to come back next week for more home design ideas as we tour the second floor of this stunning design home! *Update: Here are the upstairs rooms in part 2 of the tour!
