Lessons in serenity from a modern farmhouse home in Canada |


This home in Richmond, BC, Canada has hit us all with a serious case of house envy. Only just completed in 2023, it’s packed with up-to-the-minute features but the house design, sophisticated modern farmhouse style and oh-so-calm and serene interiors are what we’re loving most of all. 

Victoria McKenney, principal designer at Enviable Designs, put together the interior schemes and gives us the tour.

The calm starts just inside the front door, with this high-ceilinged, high-windowed living room. The extra height and light gives a sense of spaciousness, that always helps to promote a feeling of calm. Living room ideas feature layers of neutral warm whites and grays, together with natural wood flooring to add to the tranquil scene. Using fluted tiles around the fireplace, and a hint of paneling on the walls, adds softness and texture.
