Modern farmhouse style isn’t just about subway tile and trendy sinks — but those things certainly don’t hurt. In a bit of an American Hygge twist, the style evokes feelings of warmth and comfort. It’s luxurious and traditional but not stuffy, classic but not stark, and comfortable in a way that mimics the slow, serene atmosphere of the countryside.
And lucky for us, it’s not hard to find in Northern Colorado. In fact, with all the natural woods and rustic lighting that come from our stylish mountain setting, we think Joanna Gaines would fit right in.
We rounded up the NoCo homes that are on the market right now and showcase the style made famous by the Gaines team and their home improvement show Fixer Upper. Whether you’re house hunting or just a home decor enthusiast, we think you’ll find more than just a few things to love. Enjoy!
From the mid-century modern exterior to the stunning contemporary design inside, there is a lot to love about this Fort Collins home. The stand out space is the intricately designed dining area. Aligned along the back wall of the home, it’s framed by an entire wall of windows. Complete with its own fireplace, extra built-ins for storage and display, rustic light fixtures and a natural wood ceiling, we might have an extra meal during the day just so we can spend more time here!
Located in Midtown Fort Collins, this renovated home makes farmhouse style even more approachable and warm than it already is. We love the juxtaposition of exposed red brick and traditional lighting in the dining room. And we think team Gaines would fall in love with the master bath. After all, it does have the classic barn door, stand-alone tub and subway tiled shower!
For just a minute, imagine yourself lounging in this home’s cozy living room. Complete with dark beams on the ceiling, rustic builtins on both sides of the stone fireplace and natural light streaming in through beautiful French doors, you might actually forget you’re not at Magnolia Farms.
When you think of a wide open floor plan, subway tile and a family-sized kitchen island, who do you think of? Yeah, us too. This Windsor home has a spacious main living area that is made bright by huge windows, warm by natural stone textures, and contemporary by stainless steel appliances and rustic lighting.
Remember the episodes of Fixer Upper when Chip and Joanna get to surprise the homeowners with a bonus area that didn’t originally fit in the budget? That’s this home’s backyard and upper deck. Looking out over a gorgeous lawn and raised garden beds, you can nestle in the sheltered living space located just outside the interior living room.
This Timnath home even has shiplap, so naturally, it was a shoe-in. The kitchen features white tile backsplash, classic farmhouse light fixtures and shiplap detailing on the island. Journey into the rest of the home to find other Gaines favorites like mudroom storage, French doors and even more shiplap and contemporary fixtures (hello, master bath!).
Bordering on traditional style, this Timnath home has a few farmhouse touches we love! From the barn door detailing on the garage to the wood beams on the ceiling in both the living room and the master bedroom, the merging of styles is effortless and stunning down to every nook and cranny.
From the curb, this Timnath home showcases a red barn decal and two sets of French doors. When you step inside, you’ll find even more farmhouse charm, like a beautiful white farmhouse sink and subway tile in the kitchen, barn doors in the master suite, and a red brick hearth in the living room!
