House Tour: A Transitional Farmhouse Style Home

  • February 8, 2019

Giving a fresh new look to a 100-year-old Wayzata home, the design of this Transitional Farmhouse is both timeless and unique!

With Studio M-designed cabinetry throughout several rooms of the home, there is an abundance of storage and style. You’ll notice how each room in the home is unique but carries similar design elements throughout, allowing each space to blend seamlessly with the rest of the home. This turn-of-the-century transitional farmhouse style home is a perfect representation of functional beauty and is sure to please the eyes of many.

On today’s blog we are going to give you a room-by-room tour of this remodeled home, inspired by images of rustic Midwestern farmhouses and designed for today’s busy families.


As you walk in the front door, you immediately grasp the farmhouse feel of the home from the white shiplap details used in the living room and kitchen.

The kitchen is a large, two-part open-concept space with ample room to entertain and cook. In addition to the main kitchen area, a butler’s pantry was created specifically to stage dishes, to hide messes while entertaining, and to serve as a baking center. The cabinets, by Dura Supreme Cabinetry, are painted white on a shaker style door while the butler’s pantry cabinets are painted Gale Force by Sherwin Williams.

The shiplap in the kitchen is exterior shiplap siding which is a noncombustible material that meets local building code for being close to a professional-grade range.

The kitchen island and butler’s pantry feature Silestone engineered quartz countertops, while the perimeter counters feature a dark quartz from Silestone.

On the far side of the kitchen a bar area was designed into the rustic brick wall to add storage and serve as an area to entertain guests.

The flooring is hand-scraped engineered maple. The custom Dura Supreme range hood is knotty alder finished with a dark stain that matches the wood and finish of the kitchen island and adjacent bar. Bringing in wood adds another element to the primarily white kitchen. “It’s nice to incorporate that warmth,” says Claire Teunissen, the design assistant for this project. “Otherwise all white can feel a little sterile.”

The Top Knobs brass cabinet hardware added another element of warmth and kept with the transitional theme.

The mudroom/entryway features more cabinetry built into a decorative bricked wall. The new design of this entryway sets the tone for the home immediately as you walk in the door and adds storage and style to a small nook.

Custom cabinetry is also featured in the master bathroom. This space includes his and hers custom designed bathroom vanities by Dura Supreme, a freestanding tub, glass-door shower, and the ever-so-popular herringbone tile floor.

Continuing past the master bedroom, the laundry room features side-by-side washer and dryer units with surrounding Dura Supreme cabinetry and a single floating shelf. This design adds both character and storage to a necessary area.

The upstairs includes two bedrooms, a guest bathroom, and an apartment suite. In the guest bathroom, a beautiful transitional style bathroom vanity is paired with clean and classic hexagon floor tile and subway wall tile.

The apartment suite, shown in the photo below, also includes a bedroom and bathroom. Custom cabinets span the wall of the living area and make this cozy space both charming and functional.
