Modern Farmhouse Style Home Tour – Street of Dreams

Modern Farmhouse Style Home Tour - Street of Dreams

My girls’ and I love going to the Street of Dreams in Portland. It’s one of our end of summer traditions! I’ve  actually been going with my family since I was a little girl and we’ve just carried that tradition on. This year my son and nephew joined us, too!

We definitely go to dream, the houses on the tour are not called the “Street of Dreams” for no reason, ha! But I find so many elements to love and be inspired by, even though I live in a more modest home. :)

I’m always drawn to a house that feels like a real family style home, though, even if it is HUGE! So it is no surprise this house was one of my favorites. It is styled as a comfortable modern farmhouse style on the inside, but of course you could take a house like this and put your own spin on the style!

It has quite a few similarities to my favorite home from last year, actually. I just did a recap of it last year’s coastal farmhouse style house, so check it out if you missed it. There are some shopping sources with it, too.

The home featured in this post here was built as a private residence, not as a showhouse, on the property where the owners had raised their four young boys in a smaller house on the same property. That property became their guest house, you’ll be able to see it below.

You can read more about the builder and home here, that’s about all I know! I’m sorry I can’t answer specific questions about it or exact sources (but feel free to browse my Modern Farmhouse Shop for some similar items).

I snapped quite a few photos as I toured it so thought you all would enjoy a tour. Now, I must say I think all of the images are from this one house, there could be an extra room or two that weren’t actually in this house (and some that might be in this house that will end up in a part two!)  But, hopefully you’ll be inspired anyway, even if I mix up some of the photos :).

This is only a small fraction of the photos I took, so I’ll have to do the part two of other rooms and homes on another day!

I hope you enjoy the house tour!

We’re working on some more “fall nesting posts” for next week, thank you all for your comments and messages.

Hello! It’s Courtney here. I can’t believe it’s been about 3 months since I moved into my very first apartment!

When I first planned to move here, my design-loving heart got started right away dreaming up decorating plans. I started out with the basics and some accessories I had collected over the years and I was happy about how homey this place felt from the get-go.

But if I’ve learned anything from following along with my mom’s home transformations, it’s that creating a home is a process. Slowly but surely I’ve been making this home more personal. And of course, now that it’s fall nesting time, I’m all about bringing in the cozy vibes.

The last time I shared my space here on the blog, one of you commented that it looks like a ‘happy place.’ I love that! It got me thinking about ways to make your home spark joy. Who doesn’t want that?

4 Ways to Make Your Home Spark Joy!

Here are 4 Ways Make Your Home Spark Joy:

1) Sprinkle in memories

There’s something so special about looking around your home and seeing things that remind you of family, friends, pets, travels, etc. These items can tell the story of the people in your life and the good times you have experienced together.

Personal mementos are what set your home apart from a showroom display or a cookie cutter design. The things in our home aren’t what matters most to us, of course, but when the things we are surrounded with are chosen with intention and purpose, they can definitely bring joy.

4 Ways to Make Your Home Spark Joy!

I’m excited to have my own kitchen and dining space. One of my goals in my own apartment is to invite people over as often as possible. My cheese board is personalized with the word ‘feast’ as a gentle reminder to gather people around my little table to make new memories.

Calendars and custom art with the smiling faces and memories of the people I love is a sure way to spark joy. A customized memo board inspires me! Personally designed items make the most thoughtful gifts, too.

Ornaments

I have many good friends in my life and several of them have been with me since I was in first grade! At Shutterfly I found so many adorable ways to honor those memories and friendships.

2) Decorate with positivity

Filling my home with joy every day is an intentional choice. I love to see motivational words and life quotes that inspire me to keep positive, even when circumstances threaten to weigh me down.

4 Ways to Make Your Home Spark Joy!

Here are a few customized accessories I have that reflect some of my positive life mottos and encouragements. I was able to easily create these at Shutterfly, and you can, too!

  • My ‘Cozy Vibes Only’ blanket was created with this sherpa throw blanket. Add your own photos or positive message (I made mine in Photoshop).
  • My ‘No Bad Days’ dish was customized from this catch all tray.
  • My ‘Feast’ cutting board can be customized for a gift or a life motto!
  • My Treat Yourself biscotti jar was personalized from this glass canister.

What are your own life mottos? How could you incorporate them into your home? Personalize your space so it can tell your story.

3) Set the right mood

A home that ‘sparks joy’ to you doesn’t have to look like the expected ‘joyful’ space (vibrant, fun, cheery decor). Maybe a cozy or moody space sparks joy for you. Or maybe you’re happiest in an eclectic home inspired by your travels or experiences. Or maybe a more minimal style puts your mind at ease! What’s your decorating mood?

Decorating a home should be personal, so it helps to consider what mood brings YOU joy. Embrace it. Make a list of words that describe the mood you’d like to create to get your design wheels turning.

4) Create stress-free zones

Whether you’re a naturally tidy person or feel like a ‘hot mess’ most of the time (no judgement here!), I think we can all agree that having at least some things organized brings us joy. I mean, when you’re trying to get out the door and frantically looking for your phone or your keys and you can’t find them, do you feel joy sparking from your heart? Nope! You feel stress.

There’s more joy in your life when your necessities are right where you expected them to be.

Making organization personal and pretty might seem like a little thing in the grand scheme of life’s demands, but it makes a big impact.

4 Ways to Make Your Home Spark Joy!
Shutterfly offers many lovely customizable organizational accessories, such as trinket trays and memo boards.

I personalized a sweet little dish with one of my daily mottos “No Bad Days.” It’s a perfect reminder of where to set my phone or keys so I won’t start out the day feeling disorganized.
