The Providence Group Explains Farmhouse Design Components

Southerners are known for their hospitality, so it should come as no surprise that the popular farmhouse design trend delivers a fresh, bright and inviting atmosphere to guests. The Providence Group of Georgia, LLC, a Green Brick Partner, is proud to offer the latest and greatest design trends at its Design Studio, modern farmhouse included.

A trend with farmhouse design is its seamless blend of indoor and outdoor living that “just makes sense” in the warmer Georgia climate, according to Builders Design Group Regional Vice President Lesley McCarthy. Outdoor living spaces are an extension of the home’s living space and create blurred lines between the interior and exterior entertaining areas.

Another component of this popular design trend is an updated, farmhouse-style kitchen featuring stunning, yet simple backsplashes, accent hood designs, open shelving, the “everything island” and a generally uncluttered aesthetic. This light and bright concept set the perfect, welcoming ambiance for entertaining friends and family. That, paired with a generally open-concept floor plan, also provides plenty of opportunities to include an expanded wine or cocktail storage space in other locations of the home.

An important factor contributing to the farmhouse design’s “open and bright” signature are big, open windows and impressive statement lighting fixtures. The oversized windows allow plenty of natural light to flood in and brighten a space if left uncluttered by oversized drapes or blinds, while statement lighting fixtures can offer gorgeous focal points throughout the home that do not clutter counter- or tabletops. Whether it is one large-scale light or a grouping of lights, as seen in the model home at Traditions, lighting fixtures can complement nearly any space.
