Modern Meets Traditional in this Award-Winning Farmhouse

Labeled the “Field of Dreams Home”, home builder Scott Maynes and his sister, designer Karen Jones, created this home with a traditional focus that blended with the modern necessities of the 21st century. Building this home for a larger family, space, functionality and lifestyle were huge factors in the design. All About Home Design chose a Quick-Step Malted Tawny Oak Laminate to lay throughout the home. With tough durability, the laminate works perfectly with a busy household.

No detail was overlooked in this farmhouse build, which won awards such as Best Craftsmanship, Best Kitchen, Best Floorplan, Best Exterior Architecture, Best Interior Design, Best Overall Home and People’s Choice Award during the 2014 Colorado Springs Parade of Homes. Let’s take a look at all the stunning features in this home!

The Outside Facade:

Mixing a traditional farmhouse cottage with a barn-like appearance, the home is inviting and architecturally interesting.


Beautifully Lit at Night:


The Entry:

Unique windows line the hallway where you can peek into another room. A beautiful runner, lighting feature and wood plank wall make a stunning first impression.


Open Concept Living, Dining and Kitchen:

From the entry, you flow into an open living area that is flooded with natural light from large windows and doors to the deck. Pastel colors paired with plaid and flower patterns create a cozy farmhouse feel. Family dinners, homework and relaxation can all be enjoyed in this open floor plan.
