Inspiration: Modern White Farmhouse Exterior

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

The minute I saw our Farmhaus I knew I wanted to modernize and brighten it up.  Everyone I know thought I would want to make it grey.  They know I love grey.  But every house and space has its own story to tell and I didn’t think grey was what I wanted here.  Instead, I want white, inside and outside.

I am very inspired by these clean, modern white farmhouse exteriors.

Our house isn’t as grand as these houses, but I think a coat of white paint will give it a huge facelift.  Also, did you notice that all these houses have a standing seam metal roof?  LOVE! Unfortunately that’s completely out of the question. Replacing our roof with a standing seam roof would cost two and a half times the price of asphalt shingles.  Complete budget buster! Though I’m told that a standing seam roof is more durable.  So, I guess in the long run it could be worth it, but with all the other fixes we need to make, I need to manage costs wisely.

Since our house has cedar shingle siding and we’re putting in a new shingle roof, I think the overall effect will be similar to this one below once painted. Ours will have a darker roof, black windows (existing) and black fascia gutters, for a slightly more modern look.

tania - what is your recommendation for painting a white farm house-paint for hardy board if you have bought a standard white garage door and don’t want blinding white/too stark or yellowy undertones?

isadorag - Hi Tania,
I haven’t tackled the exterior paint of our Farmhaus yet, but the white I keep coming back to is White Dove by Benjamin Moore.
Good luck. Let me know what you end up picking.
