A Modern Farmhouse

The Belk family of Chester, South Carolina, hired architect extraordinaire Ken Pursley to rebuild their farmhouse, and rebuild he did. Inspired by wood, tin and rope – the most humble materials! – Ken transformed a former brick-heavy construction into a light, airy and modern getaway.

With a vast, open kitchen accented in industrial elements and unique decor (we’re loving that farm-friendly birdhouse pendant!), the home feels cozy and welcoming.

A rope railing pays homage to the lakefront property with a fun, nautical spin.

Natural light floods the home, creating the perfect atmosphere for prolonged visits and afternoon coffee.

Farm animal prints are a must for any farmhouse, but these kelly green versions are the perfect fit for a more modern aesthetic.

An equally smart touch? A barn door-transformed-shower door for a rustic bathing experience!

Lastly, cozy textures make these built-in beds shine. I’m imagining it must be very hard to get out of bed on most mornings! So beautiful, yes?
