modern farmhouse featured in martha stewart. / sfgirlbybay

when i see photos from design*sponge founder grace bonney’s upstate new york house, i often fantasize about what it might be like to live in such a wide open space, surrounded by countryside. and this farmhouse featured in martha stewart got me wondering some more. it’s such a beautiful mix of rustic meets modern and the couple who’ve remodeled the two-story farmhouse have done such an amazing and admirable job of it. the creative couple literally learned the ‘how to’s’ from studying at their local library and teaching themselves how to DIY the renovation — including that beautiful tile backsplash in the kitchen which was made by hand. it’s a most inspiring undertaking and should you like to see the full tour and learn more about how they went about it, visit martha stewart .

  1. This is beautiful and all the more so because they did it themselves.
    Our house began as something other than a house, so it’s mostly a big, open space. We had to put up walls for bedrooms. Anyway, there are pluses and minuses to openness. We are together more, by default. However, not all activities work well together (like running the blender while somebody is watching TV). I’m really split about whether I would do it again.

  2. so funny. this was from a few years ago but i have held onto that Living issue because I loved this house so much, and used it as inspiration for my own recent kitchen expansion.
    i always love your posts, and the new site is gorgeous!

  3. I am ready to move back to the tinny island I come from, well was born in Tenerife, but raised in Gran Canaria. I can not wait to find the right property to call home, hopefully in the lush North of the island. This is great inspiration, as usual. By the way, love the redesign of he blog and identity!!
