A Modern European style farmhouse style in this recently remodeled home that will inspire you. Mingled with vintage charm, let’s take a look at this chic fixer upper in New Jersey…

Modern European Style Farmhouse Kitchen

This home has a history and as the past often goes, it’s not so pretty! The home of Deb Foglia and family of the blog Seeking Lavender Lane was a foreclosure that she and her husband were able to get. I’ve been a fan of Deb’s talent for quite some time! If you are Instagram you can follow more of what she does in decorating, now that the renovation is close to the finish line. Find her on Insta at Seeking Lavender Lane. If this before and after doesn’t amaze you, I don’t know what will!!

Deb is the creator behind her blog Seeking Lavender Lane. She loves the look and feel of the European Farmhouse aesthetic. She and her family updated a fixer upper house in their home state of NJ in 2018 to a modern farmhouse exterior with warm and inviting casual European touches to the interior.

With hard work, grit and sacrifice the young couple has definitely created a noteworthy place!

Function and form with beauty in the farmhouse mudroom.

“I think just in the designing one of my favorite details is the arched doors ways (which are trending in 2020) and how they lead to a diamond pattern floor of cement gray and white tiles in our mudroom. I also love our charcoal and moody office which is the only room in the house that I was able to pull off the moody tones. Removable wallpaper in our master bedroom entrance created a great traditional/modern dramatic feature too.” 

The family room, where you’ll find the couple hanging out often with their two children.
