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.

      I was going to say the same thing! So unfriendly and vanilla. Melissa I prefer your house. Blog on.

    I love the show houses and street of dreams places for ideas, but also for the occasional laughs or smack my head moments that occur now and then. In this one it’s the obviously-not-even-fake-curtain-panels hanging on either side of the big window in the dining area. What is that? Those are precious spots for lovely small pieces of art, or candle sconces near a beautiful window which may or may not need window treatments.

      In the house I live in now, when we first moved in, there were those weird tiny panels on either side of our living room windows too. I just don’t get it.

    This was my favorite also. I felt it had a Magnolia feel.

    Is there a nicer way to say this house was boring? Yes it was nicely styled, and proportions were pleasing, but I am personally so tired of neutral. This girl needs some color!!!

    Beautiful home. Love the pool and outside grill area . However, I’m just over the farmhouse look. I love clean, fresh, modern .

      Isn’t it lovely? I don’t find the house itself to be pigeonholed as a farmhouse as much as the decor, I think it would be a fun house to style.

    You could take these photos in black and white and the house would still look the same. It needs color! The architecture is great though. I’d be interested to know where the bird decals in the child’s room came from, they’re pretty cool.

    Is it possible to find the source for the dining room table? I agree that it is stunning but color would be great. Hope we are getting back to that.

    The house is pretty but some authentic antiques would add so much character to liven up the sterile-ness!

    Absolutely gorgeous!! Love – Love! Can you tell me where you got the two side arm chairs with the stripe down the middle? The ones near the beginning of your beautiful tour? I have a tiny cape cod and these would be perfect in my living room. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.
