Last year my girls and I went to the Street of Dreams in Portland. We hope to go again this year if we can squeeze it in! We used to go every year when we lived there. You might remember me sharing about my visit to my favorite house last year, a modern coastal farmhouse style home. Today I thought we would revisit it to discuss some of the key features and elements that make up this fun blend of styles.

‘Modern’ coastal or farmhouse style is a bit different from what I picture as a more traditional “farmhouse” or “coastal” home from the past. While I think the look is referred to as “modern” to differentiate it from the styles of the past, these homes can still retain classic elements that are simply freshened up with twist.

While it’s totally possible to get carried away with a “theme” or “trend,” I don’t think you have to worry about your home becoming “dated” if you stick with classics in features you won’t want to change every year.

If the key architectural features you use were found in some variation in homes over a hundred years ago and they make sense in your home right now, you can feel pretty safe.

Subway tile, painted paneled walls, stone (marble or quartz!) counters, wood beams, hardwood and tile flooring are all classics that can be updated but will be beautiful for years to come (just as they have in the past.) Those elements work well with both modern coastal and farmhouse styles. When craftsmanship and materials are of quality, you’ve got a timeless combination.

Trendy accessories can become dated, of course, but they are easy to change.

If you want to enjoy trends while they are trendy, go for it! Or you can collect classics like ironstone, wooden spoons, beautiful books, white dishes, etc. and your collections will always feel appropriate.

Like any home, you can decorate a modern coastal farmhouse with a mix of elements that speak to you. I love me some old with new, coastal with farmhouse, personal treasures and unexpected elements tossed in for a unique surprise.

This particular house actually looks like a Nantucket coastal style house on the outside, but much more farmhouse inside. Yes, you can do that.  I’d personally prefer an interior with slightly less farmhouse and a bit more modern coastal/lake house vibe mixed in, but that’s what’s fun about style. You get to choose what mix works for you!

This is truly a dream house, but big houses overwhelm me so I’d look for one about a quarter of this size. :)

Hello! It’s Courtney here today filling in for my mom while she’s in Georgia for the Haven Conference as a blogging mentor.

I love a classic blue and white color scheme in pretty much any room, but I was particularly inspired by all of these pretty navy and white bathrooms today and I thought you might enjoy them too! I think the wood accents in many of these add a nice warmth to contrast with the cooler tones.

What do you think, would you do a blue and white bathroom in your own house? I definitely would!

I also want to mention that today is the very LAST day that you can vote for our rug designs in the Annie Selke Rug Design Competition!

The challenge ends at 9 PM EST tonight.

Thank you all for your excitement with us as we’ve shared this process (and also thank you for your patience if you’ve been hearing us mention the rugs all over the place for the last couple weeks). :) It’s such an unreal opportunity so we really appreciate you allowing us to share and giving us the chance to win! It would be such an honor so we’re thankful for your support.

We had fun this week creating a few little Photoshop mockups to envision our rug designs in our house (new and old house). We think these rugs would go with so many styles…they’re classics with a twist! Check out the mockups below.
