I have a really special treat for you guys today! I’m sharing another absolutely incredible new project from my friends at Simons Design Studio in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have featured Simons Design Studio’s amazing projects several times in the past because their homes are always so fresh, inspiring and truly some of the best design work that I have ever seen. Today’s project absolutely blows me away and I have been so excited for you guys to see it and savor all of the little details that SDS is known for.
All images I’m sharing today were photographed by Rebekah Westover.
When Shawn Simons first shared this project with me, I was so inspired by the creativity, material/color mix and details. Even though modern farmhouse has been around for several years now, this design style continues to evolve and it’s so interesting to me to see how SDS redefined and incorporated new elements into a more refined/softer farmhouse style.
To give you some background on this new 7000 square foot home, the project is on a deep, beautiful lot covering in amazing trees that have been in the city for ages. There’s a lot of new building in the area, but this is a rare lot in a great area that was once home to almost nothing but farmland. The lot retains that charm with the farmhouse-style home sat back deep in the lot.
The SDS team told me that “our goal was to create a custom estate for this family to retreat, relax, indulge, and continue raising their family as their kids begin to have children of their own.” They added that their client’s “worked their whole lives to be able to build their dream home, so we wanted to make it perfect.”
One of the first things that I noticed the first time I looked through this project was all of the breathtaking cathedral ceilings and beams. As you walk into home, this view is absolutely amazing! I LOVE how they incorporated the beautiful wood design work on the peak of the outside porch that can be seen on the inside as you walk in the door. Such a beautiful touch!
The living room layout and color palette mixed with stunning wood tones is such a beautiful combination. These elements combined make this space feel cozy. Large spaces like this can often times feel cold but of course, SDS did an incredible job of layering and managing the size.
The kitchen in this home has a vaulted ceiling with large warm wood beams giving that old world feel mixed with soft modern elements in the kitchen itself. Notice how the beams go behind the upper cabinetry. Absolutely stunning!
The cabinetry paint color is absolutely perfect in this space and it’s Sherwin Williams Collanade Gray. It’s a beautiful soft warm gray that is so elegant on the beautiful cabinetry.
How beautiful is this view?!!
Throughout the home, you will notice that they incorporated beautiful natural wood elements everywhere, including doors.
It’s really hard for me to choose a favorite room in this home because each room is so special but the multi-purpose laundry room is pretty high up on my list! Talk about breathtaking! Just look at that fantastic layout of the space and storage!
Can we talk about that dreamy shade of blue on the cabinetry?! I just want to stare at this color all day! It’s a 50-50 mix of Sherwin Williams Uncertain Gray and Stardew. It’s incredible!
One of the reasons I have been inspired all these years by SDS is that they do the little details better than anyone, in my opinion. Below is a great example of how the little details mixed together can make magic. Notice the oversized hardware on the cabinets and how the sconce lighting so perfectly fills the space close to the ceiling. Just look at that subtle beautiful wood piece directly below the sink. Wow! So much goodness in one shot.
I love how they carried that dreamy blue throughout the home including on the walls of the primary bedroom. Can we talk about those gorgeous doors! Oh my!
The layering of all the elements in this room are really so beautiful!
Hello dream closet!
I LOVE this beautiful hidden closet/bench area in the hallway. What a smart idea!
Again, we see that salvaged wood natural door element carried through with this gorgeous sliding door.
Speaking of wood elements carried through the home, let’s jump back to the living room for a moment and I want you to look closely at the built-in cabinets. Notice how the inside of the shelving and top of the countertop are wood. Such a stunning detail.
Before we head to the backyard, SDS told me that “the clients are great people who are very driven but also love to have a good time (and they love hanging by the pool during hot Utah summers), so the backyard is the perfect venue for that summertime fun with their whole family.” They added that “the landscaping all around is gorgeous and feels like a private park. It’s a total retreat with all the bells and whistles and we were so happy to be a part of it.”
Are you ready?!! 😉
Isn’t this unbelievable?! It’s not easy designing outdoor porch coverings and multi-levels but they hit this out of the park.
I am in awe of this incredible home and every single fresh detail. Each time I look at images of this home, I see new details. SDS really did a truly amazing job and I am so honored that they allowed me to share this project with you guys!
