New-Construction Farmhouse with Front Porch – Home Bunch Interior Design Ideas
Located in Western Springs, Illinois, and recently completed by Timber Trails Development Company, this new-construction farmhouse has a white exterior, black front door and an inviting front porch.
Timber Trails Western Springs is well-known for creating a new subdivision with new-construction homes that are far from being cookie cutter.
With the help of interior designer Julie Howard, these homes, which includes the farmhouse I am sharing with you today, feature a lot of custom details, from custom cabinetry to high ceilings and plenty of shiplap.
This home also features a large mudroom, a large open kitchen and inspiring home decor. I hope this inspires you.
New-construction Farmhouse with Front Porch
Modern Farmhouse Board and Batten, Siding and Trim: Hardie Arctic White.
Black Windows: Andersen.
Black Door Paint Color: Benjamin Moore Black.
House also features black metal roof and half round gutters.
Wallpaper is Thibaut Summer House in Pearl. In person, the wallpaper looks like a water color mural – it’s really beautiful!
Black Wainscoting Paint Color: Iron Mountain by Benjamin Moore 2134-30.
Desks in Both Offices – were made by Cabinet Maker @PalosFineCarpentry and topped with Caesarstone. Desk is stained Benjamin Moore Classic Grey.
A chic hall with wainscotting leads to the main rooms of the house.
This ebony console table brings personality and some contrast against the white paneling.
The formal dining room is currently being used as a home office. Notice the beautiful wallpaper and coffered ceiling.
Wallpaper is Thibaut Greenwood “Marantha Arrowroot in Black”.

Trim Paint Color (Throughout the House): Benjamin Moore Simply White.
This custom buffet serves as a “butler’s pantry” between the kitchen and the formal dining room. A slightly similar buffet can be found here.
Buffet paint color is Benjamin Moore Iron Mountain – The Grey Buffet actually is the same color as the Kitchen island. The kitchen pictures do a better job of actually showing the true color – it shows how lighting can change the color of something in a photo.
The mirror is from Pottery Barn.
Hardwood flooring is set in a herringbone pattern.
Kitchen features white perimeter cabinets and a charcoal island.
I love the contrast of white kitchen with black windows. It looks even better with matte black hardware and rubbed oil bronze lighting.
Breakfast nook features black windows with leaded glass. Isn’t it beautiful?!
Table was from RH (discontinued).
According to the designer, the styling items throughout the house were found mostly at HomeGoods, Target and 610 Home (local store). They are all obtainable and affordable.

Ozark Shadows by Benjamin Moore AC-26.
“The window above is actually leaded glass even though you can’t tell in the pictures. The sconces are Visual Comfort and are huge. I’ve always wanted a space to use them and they work perfectly here. We had a full length mirror made for the back of the door since there isn’t a traditional mirror over the sink. For a powder room I think it’s perfect and actually better to have a full length option. The vanity is 6′ long and the toilet and door are on the opposite wall.” – Designer Julie Howard.
Sconces: Visual Comfort.
Sink & Backsplash
“We like to have our countertop fabricator cut interesting shapes on backsplashes. I think people forget to ask for this. We often bevel just the edges or make a backsplash taller like 6″ or 8″. The vessel sink is marble. A vessel sink was imperative because the corbels were desk height 30″ and we wanted our sink to be at 36”. “
Similar Marble Vessel Sink: Here.
The base corbels were from RH (they don’t sell them anymore) and were meant to hold a piece of glass as a desk. The designer turned the corbels sideways so you could enjoy the beauty of the carving. The top is a slab of Caesarstone in Raw Concrete which perfectly matches the wall color.
