Modern Farmhouse Project: The Kitchen

Ohio Modern Farmhouse Kitchen | Stephanie Ballard Interiors

Oh hey Campers!!  It’s been a minute since we spitballed about anything besides The Bachelor or Casa Covet Living, so I wanted to share a peek at another project I’ve been working on for awhile… and please forgive my analog photoshop image above (I call it a “doodle”).  Anyhoo – this is the ground-up custom home of THE SWEETEST FAMILY ON THE PLANET back in Columbus, OH, where I hailed from 2 years ago. (Same house where we’re doing this pretty little powder room).  We picked a pale grey cabinet color (with the teeniest hint of blue) – I spec’d Dunn Edwards’ Stonington Grey, but the sample below was the closest Midwest equivalent since the DE isn’t in the OH-I-O:

Acacia Floors via my Factory Flooring guru guy which we love for their gorgeous variation, undulation and durability – Acacia is a harder-hardwood and looks a lot like walnut & wears like a champ:

Macaubus quartzite countertops (this is the slab we chose) which we love for being a great Carrara / Calacatta marble alternative: still gorgeous, still natural stone so you get lots of neutral tones and movement and warmth, but harder than granite and sans the upkeep of marble.  These bad boys will be honed to perfection, which gives them (I think) more of an antique feel:

Backsplash is classic white handmade subway… custom, live edge open shelves we’re sourcing from the good folks at Re:Work Furnishings in C-bus (WHAT UP ALEX!??)… and those gorgeous, gorgeous pendants I spied at Vegas Market in the Visual Comfort showroom and basically decided my homegirl couldn’t do without.  The rest of the kitchen has a pretty polished, sophisticated (but still) warm feel, and there are a lot of clean, modern elements to this house, so these add just the right amount of cozy-Farmhouse-chic to the mix.


That’s it so far!  We’ll keep you posted as cabinetry & such goes in over the next month or so!
