The Modern Farmhouse's master bedroom suite includes a high pitched ceiling in pale blue, a private balcony with views of downtown Austin, and carbonized bamboo floors. The focal points of the room are unquestionably the huge artillery target over the bed and the rusty metal military shelving unit filled with our collections.
- Georgian doorknob in aged bronze (Schlage)
- Stable door latch and heavy-duty hinges (The Home Depot)
- Carbonized bamboo flooring
- Door cut in half and cross pattern applied to create stable door

- Sherwin-Williams "Hinting Blue" above board-and-batton and on ceiling
- Gallery white on board-and-batten
- Gallery white on trim
- Malm bed frame with headboard wrapped in denim fabric. We actually like the lines of the Malm, and most modern bed frames are quite expensive despite not offering much in terms of interesting design. Chris wrapped the headboard in a washed denim, folding the ends like you would wrap a gift, pulling it tight, and stapling the fabric into the back of the headboard with an upholstery stapler. (IKEA)
- "Hockey Night In Canada" wood-and-Formica side table designed by Chris' favorite author Douglas Coupland
- White bent-wire side table (BoConcept)
- Metal Army machine shop shelving unit that we modified (Austin Antique Mall)
- Vintage vinyl arm chair (Hogg Wild Austin)
- Industrial sconces (West Elm)
- Textiles & Window Treatments
- Wool area rug. We didn't want to spend the money for a larger rug, as most of it would be hidden beneath the bed. So we bought a smaller rug and cut it in half with a carpet knife, hiding the edges a few feet in from each side of the bed. Half the price! (Pottery Barn)
- White sheets and pillow cases (Bed, Bath & Beyond)
- Thomas O'Brien throw pillow (Target)
- Wool blanket (Pendleton)
- 2" wood blinds with white fabric tape (3 Day Blinds)

Antique and modern built-ins, doors, windows, and a chimney... We worked around a multitude of obstacles to create a welcoming dining room and butler's pantry.
Gross no more. We busted down walls, rearranged doors, and filled this bright bathroom with vintage and modern touches.
According to Clairee Belcher in Steel Magnolias, all gay men have track lighting, and all gay men are named Mark, Rick, or Steve. We're not named Mark, Rick, or Steve, but otherwise I'm afraid we're playing to stereotypes. Because we love track lighting. Here's why.

We wanted to add substance and texture to this wire piano stool, so we recovered it using a chenille bath mat.
