This house was the best kind of design project: nice clients with beautiful taste who aren't afraid to take some risks. We started working with Brian and Hilary Coate in the spring of 2019 to convert their California cottage into a modern farmhouse.
But Brian and Hilary were clear: they didn't want a sterile white kitchen, they didn't want sliding barn doors, they didn't want shiplap. They wanted their modern farmhouse to have a personality and soulfulness that reflected their personal taste, and they wanted some of the significant items in the house to be very unique.
