Breathtaking Colorado home with contemporary farmhouse-style details

Commissioned by , Folly Farm is a contemporary expression of historic, additive farmhouse-style architecture located in Boulder, Colorado. The homeowners are a young family that is both energetic and creative. They wished to have a home with casual living spaces to create, play and discover inspiration.

To achieve these goals, the design team thoughtfully composed forms, spaces and finishes which combines old and new; rich textures with simple, yet age-old formal geometries.

What We Love: This bright and airy contemporary farmhouse-style home showcases a brilliant interconnected flow between indoors and out. Soaring ceilings and exposed wood trusses in the living room adds style and sophistication, while casual furnishings hold durability for young children. The spacious outdoor living areas are perfect for entertaining, with a swimming pool, pool house and lounge area with a built-in fireplace.
