This countryside farmhouse was created as a personal dream house by designer Isabel López-Quesada, located near the seaside town of Biarritz, in southwestern France. A dilapidated farm, the house was rehabilitated as a haven with freshness and light. The house is white with gray painted shutters and a gable roof, nestled on four acres of gentle hills, meadows and oak trees. A spacious pavilion was added to the original home, as well as a guest room and a swimming pool. Created with a shabby-luxe look, the home was restored to its former glory with everything left simple and natural, whitewashed walls, doors and old wooden beams. A relaxed sophistication was infused into the interiors through furnishings and recovered wooden flooring with textured area rugs. Some areas of the home was left a unfinished plaster on the walls such as in the kitchen, dining room, home office and master bedroom retreat. The designer mixed antiques and flea market finds with more expensive designer furnishings and some inherited furniture. Large objects were selected to fill the spaces to make the home warm and cozy.
The range of fabrics in white were chosen with splashes of blue and a touch of red. Natural selection in rustic finishes of linen, burlap and cotton were also infused into the design scheme. A mixture of fabrics were selected of Ikats, stripes, suzanis, Provencal and Basque-French. The designer likes to escape to this heavenly retreat to see the changing of the seasons. Preparing the landscape for spring planting, soaking up the beach in the summer and enjoying the changing of the leaves in autumn.

Winelands 190 was recently completed by Antoni Associates, located in the heart of Stellenbosch, a town in the Western Cape province of South Africa. The luxury property is nestled in the epicenter of the vineyards and wine farms, the setting boasts a modern twist on the traditional “Cape Dutch” styled home.
Description from the designers: Mark Reilly, Jon Case and Clive Schulze took architecture and interior design to a whole new level in this incredible project named Winelands 190 by creating a place where the whole family can gather in a modern farmhouse with an emphasis on barefoot luxury.
The owners of the home love entertaining so their home needed to accommodate social spaces that reflected this aspect of their lives, and you’ll agree the poolside, fireside and cellar do great justice to their requirements.
The clients brief was to ensure that when their grown up kids had departed after the weekend they didn’t feel they were rattling around in a big empty home, which lead to decisions which saw the first floor occupying all the entertaining spaces as well as the master bedroom, and the three additional guest suites being located on the first floor.
Design regulations only permitted a single story, so the guest suites became cleverly accommodated in the roof attic.
Situated on the outskirts of the historic town of Stellenbosch, famous for the delicious wines found in this earthy region, it made perfect sense for the design team to choose natural organic materials such as timber and stone throughout Winelands 190. Limed oak flooring was compatibly paired with honey coloured stone walls with contrasting black charcoals and chalky white finishes which added both warmth and a sense of homeliness.
The water features of the front pool terrace area and the pond at the rear evoke a sense of calm that is further enhanced by the mountain landscape across the water in the distance. Internally the clean lines of the fireplace with its chic modern surround and old school wood stockpile beneath complete the appeal that this is a home to luxuriate. Part of the luxury of good living is enjoying a glass of fine wine. The glass wine cabinet has all the hallmarks of sophistication, modernity and class. The idea of viewing through this space is akin to inspecting the colour and body of any wine and we find this feature completely inspired.
The lighting throughout accomplishes what every home needs – a wow factor. Combinations of bold and discreet lighting can be seen in the subtle lighting incorporated in all the recesses and feature bulkheads, providing a warm glow around the peripheral edges right through to the customized crystal chandelier by Martin Doller suspended dramatically from the ceiling rafters.
The interior furniture and décor were designed by Mark Rielly and Sarika Jacobs of AA Interiors who worked around modern and complementary to the experience of the home including tactile finishes such as timber, textured leathers and raw linens to add a sophisticated sense of understated luxury.

This extraordinary modern farmhouse has been designed by Olsen Studios, located just West of Preston Hollow, a neighborhood outside of Dallas, Texas. The farmhouse gives the impression of a Napa Valley Estate nestled amongst the large Pecan and Oak Trees of “rural” Dallas.
The simple board and batten, gabled structures are mixed with highly textured elements in the landscape to create a perfect visual balance for this Urban Dallas location.
Olsen Studios designed the house as a series of small pavilions connected by glass links. The structures weave their way through the existing trees and site amenities.
It incorporates a south facing courtyard and porch to take advantage of the Texas climate, and a north facing evening court to enjoy the rural streetscape and converse with neighbors.

As a full service design firm, Olsen Studios creates integrated buildings and environments to last a lifetime.

Sun Valley Farmhouse is a beautifully modern vacation home designed by Signum Architecture, set in the mountains of Sun Valley, Idaho. Set on flatlands with expansive 360 degree views, this seasonal home was designed for transparency and shelter. Two, freestanding barn shaped structures, clad in Alaskan cedar with a rusted metal roof, appear both striking and at home in the landscape. The offset buildings each capture different views. The interiors were beautifully designed by Shawback Design.
Primary living and entertaining spaces fill the main building while the second houses a garage, shop and 2-bedroom apartment. A covered bridge connecting the two, encourages experiencing outside sounds, fragrances, and natural beauty.
Inside the main building, a great room with soaring ceilings dominates the space, aided by custom dark trusses that seem to disappear into the void. Floor to ceiling windows along the front wall of the room face large, custom doors along the back side. When open, the doors disappear completely into the walls turning the cozy living room into a magically lit indoor-outdoor space.
The fireplace and wood bin, crafted of concrete and steel, screen a neighboring house from view and focus attention toward the mountains. The resulting ambiance is one of privacy and remoteness in spite of proximity to the established community.
