The thouroughly modern farmhouse: a study

After our last post on the Kween of Los Angeles Modern Farmhouses, we shall dive deep into the light, bright, realm of the Southern California modern farmhouse, transitional, coastal contemporary, East-Coast-inspired, or whatever other East meets West, juxtapositional adjectives homes springing up from the equestrian pockets of the San Fernando Valley to Orange County’s ocean-view blufftops, this style is increasingly viewed as the shorthand for casual luxury, for understated wealth and class, but why? In this series on the Thoroughly Modern Farmhouse, we shall endeavor to learn more about the spread of this contemporary style and its interactions with both upcoming and established communities. For, there is nothing more interesting than what lies behind an unruffled white picket fence, the gate’s latch just waiting to be turned, lifted, entered.

As we enter the new week, we will delve into the delightful eccentricities and flourishes at play within this fashionable vernacular. From Eric Olsen designed condominiums in Corona del Mar

to sumptuous Studio City family homes frothing with all the shiny accoutrements of privileged Valley living

or even a post-modern Malibu barn imagined into a luxury residence—modern farmhouses provide the foundation for it all!

Stay tuned as your wildest design fantasies come to life this week!
