Planning: Modern Bohemian Farmhouse

Modern Bohemian Farmhouse

Today I am sharing with you all the new layout for the house, which I fondly refer to as the modern bohemian farmhouse.  I am not sure exactly what a modern bohemian house is or looks like, but it sounds good and works with the vision I have in my head.

We moved into the house in July 2016.  Since then, my vision for this house has changed quite a bit.  I think the changes reflect how I have morphed personally over the last year.   Learning more about who I am, what I want, where I am going, and how I want to represent it to the world.  I think that is why I love these projects, they aren’t static, they flex and bend with you.  I could write a whole post just on that topic, but I digress.

Let’s get back to the topic at hand, the house’s floor plan and layout.  Below is a draft of the original floor plan when we purchased the house.

Original Floor Plan

Modern Bohemian Farmhouse


The house was a 2 bedroom 1 bath with detached garage.  The washer and dryer were located in the garage.   We spent last summer washing clothes in the freakin’ Texas heat.  After that summer, I knew the layout had to include a space for the washer and dryer.  Another requirement, wide open spaces with lots of natural light.  This house had no shortage of windows or walls.  The windows we loved, but we decided many of the interior walls needed to go.  Once we removed the interior walls, we realized many of the windows had to go else there would be no where to hang anything on the walls.  So without further ado, I introduce to you the  redesigned interior of our modern bohemian farmhouse.

The new modern bohemian farmhouse is 2 bedroom 2 bath  with detached garage and completely open kitchen, living, and dining.  The washer and dryer have been moved inside and although look like they are moving into a closet on the plans, they actually are getting moved into really amazing custom built-ins.  I am thrilled with the design.  Time was the biggest issue for Mr. Wright and I.  It took us a lot of time to get the design exactly the way we wanted it, but it is worth it.  The space looks so much bigger and we didn’t even add any square footage.  If you follow me on Instagram you have seen some pictures I have posted as we are well into the transformation process.  If you aren’t following me, go check it out.
