A Thoroughly Modern Farmhouse in Cream and White

Posted by Irene Ferreira on Sep 2, 2016 10:00:00 AM

In the heart of Connecticut’s river valley, stands a newly renovated farmhouse. Authentic rustic meets thoroughly modern in this spacious and luxurious home. Designed as a weekend get-away, this house has all the amenities for comfort and relaxation.

House Design and Builder: Klausen Construction
Kitchen and Bath, Design Consultant: Diane Miner


Light and bright, the open floor plan includes an extensive kitchen, complete with a warm and inviting extra long natural stone center island. The island and countertops feature natural stone granite in Cream Gold leathered finish that sets the warm tone of this space. A backdrop of 3x6 honed Crema Marfil Subway tile displayed in the backsplash, complimented by the Soho Fancy Weave backsplash over the cooktop in Crema Marfil Light with Emperador Dark dot brings an air of sophistication to an otherwise large space.  The soft hues of the subtle grey and white is a theme that will be carried to all areas of this home to elicit a feeling of serenity.



Large format 12x24 field tile in Natural Stone Travertine, Botticino Vanilla brighten up the breezeway and sunroom. A subtle change of arrangement adds character; a herringbone pattern in the breezeway and subway pattern in the sunroom keeps the space unified and visually interesting.


The master bath is the definition of both beauty and luxury. Step onto a pathway of 2” Bianco Carrara basketweave mosaic with a polished grey dot accent* to rejuvenate in a relaxing bath against a woodland backdrop. *Bianco Carrara was also used in the shower niche.  A set of vanities - his and hers,  are strategically placed on each side of the bath.  The stone top vanity complements the intricate theme. For a quick rinse, slip into a glass encased shower featuring Alaska White high gloss 4”x 8” Subway wall tile and 2”x 2” Bianco Carrara honed mosaic, on the shower floor is set in a desired diamond shape.  


Perfectly set, each element in this space is both functional as well as beautiful. Designed as a cozy, comfortable retreat, the open floor plan of this home also lends itself to endless entertaining opportunities.
