Family Home in Utah With Fresh, Farmhouse Style

This single family home in Lehi, Utah began as a generic build, with a closed-off interior that lacked a lot of functionality. To freshen up the 5,000-square-foot space for its new owners, designer Kirsten Krason remodeled the living room and kitchen, and then pulled in light wood accents, painted brick pieces and chalkboard signs for a farmhouse finish.

Foyer Shines With Farmhouse Style

That chalkboard sign couldn't be more right. From the moment they walk through the front door, the owners of this home in Lehi, Utah will feel at ease thanks to bright white walls and their favorite art pieces.

Console Table and Chalkboard Sign

That foyer is just as functional as it is stylish. The console table offers storage for keys and mail, while its light wood finish gives the space a familiar, Fixer Upper feel. As for the chalkboard sign, it adds a personal touch that kiddos will love.

Fresh White, Family-Friendly Living Room

By removing a wall, the designers were able to open up the living room and make it feel much more inviting. A fireplace anchors the space, with its brick painted white to match a wall in the kitchen -- and make the two rooms look even more cohesive.

Living Room Includes Chic Geometrics

The living room is family-friendly, too, thanks to durable fabrics and wood floors. Notice how the two brown leather ottomans balance out the more feminine pieces, as well as complement the geometric shapes in the rug and railing.

Living Room Flows Into Open Kitchen

Those blue velvet armchairs actually swivel around, allowing the owners to enjoy the best of the living room and the kitchen. The hardwood floors encourage flow between the two spaces as well.

Large Island Doubles as Eat-In Counter

In the center of the kitchen, a large island works overtime by providing space for meal-prep on one side and serving as an eat-in counter on the other. Butcher blocks flank the farmhouse sink and add a hint of warmth.

Charming Brick Wall and Range Hood

Instead of using subway tile as a backsplash, the designers chose to paint a brick wall white. In turn, they achieved the same overall look, but with a little extra character and charm. When layered with a black range hood and sconces, the space feels clean and modern.

Open Shelves, Sink Add Functionality

To make the kitchen as functional as possible, the interior designers also outfitted the space with open shelves and custom cabinetry. The island has drawers, too, as well as a farmhouse sink for a look that Joanna Gaines would love.

Kitchen Includes Hidden Pantry

Okay, how cool is this? To the unsuspecting guest, this is just another kitchen cabinet -- but to the owners, it's the entrance to their pantry!

Stainless Appliances Complete Space

One push and the pantry opens. And that's not all! This open kitchen also includes an ice-maker, freezer and fridge that are all tucked out of sight, so the owners can enjoy their functionality without the visual clutter.
