My take on the modern Farmhouse and new construction

I usually like a good before and after but love new construction. As a Realtor I see many many houses and when it comes to new construction I am sometimes disappointed. With new construction there are so many opportunities to do interesting things instead I see the same thing brown brick,brown walls and oil rubbed bronze fixtures and lights. 
With this project I changed things up I did black windows, lighter walls, darker floors and chrome fixtures. Which by the way are less expensive than oil rubbed bronze and more classic and timeless. I did marble counter tops and yes if you spill red wine on it and roll around on it and leave it on the counter for days it will stain! It's so beautiful it's worth the extra care. I did a herringbone pattern in the foyer and a custom wood door. I used interesting light fixtures and ship lap on some walls for texture and interest. I did a stair rail on the horizontal instead of iron spindles. I know marble and fabulous light fixtures are expensive but I then used subway tile from Lowes and travertine floor tile from Home Depot. Everything doesn't have to be crazy money. 
Happy Saturday
