Steal This Look: Farmhouse Modern Entry

Issue 43 · Home Cooking · October 27, 2009

Spotted in my Napa neighborhood: a deftly restored 1930s home featuring several easy-to-recreate elements. The use of corrugated steel on the exterior gives it a farmhouse modern look, and the boldy colored front door adds a cheerful touch to the gray exterior. To see more images, go to Redfin.

Recreate the look with the following elements:

Atomic Topless Cast Guard Sconce at Remodelista

Above: Atomic Topless Cast Guard Sconce; $133 from Barn Light Electric. For an update of this post, see "Steal This Look: A Welcoming Front Door."

Above: Emtek Sideplate Quincy Entry Set; $130 at Direct Door Hardware.

Above: Benjamin Moore's Iron Mountain is a good choice for a gray exterior color.

Sap Buckets And Harvest Pails at Remodelista

Above: An assortment of sap buckets and harvest pails from Maison Reve in Mill Valley; $35 to $85.

Corrugated Siding at Remodelista

Above: Custom galvanized corrugated steel gate. Typically used in roofing and siding, corrugated steel comes in a variety of thicknesses; view options at James River Siding.

Above: Create a low-cost threshold with Lowe's 16-inch-by-16-inch Oldcastle concrete pavers set in pea gravel; $3.98 each at Lowe's.

Above: "Pea" gravel refers to the size of the stone; most local garden shops can provide a local source. Atak Trucking serves the New York area, and its site has a useful gravel calculator that works out the amount of cubic yards of gravel needed for coverage.
