Chip and Joanna Gaines transformed the barn-like structure into a modern masterpiece. Inside, Joanna decorated with rustic finishes and textiles coupled with modern design elements with sleek lines, giving the home a clean industrial look. It’s the perfect fit for the Cassius ceiling fan, which features clean lines for a masculine, modern aesthetic and industrial inspired touches like the buttons on the blade irons and exposed hardware.

The Cassius’s simple design easily ties into hardware and color accents around your space. The dark finish on the Cassius the Gaines’s used complemented the other dark finishes in the bedroom, like the metal bed frame and dark accents in the textiles. To have a ceiling fan seem more integrated with the ceiling, the Cassius white ceiling fan finish would be a good choice.

The Fixer Upper bedroom transformation featured vaulted ceilings for an open feel, but with tall ceilings comes the need for a ceiling fan to keep people cool in the summer. They also added big windows to let in lots of natural light as well as canned lights to provide amble light, so this modern ceiling fan without light is perfect for this space.

This Fixer Upper episode is a perfect example of how outdoor ceiling fans can easily be used in indoor spaces, too. The Cassius 52-inch ceiling fan is damp-rated, meaning it will hold up to the environmental elements in covered porches and patios. You can also use outdoor ceiling fans like the Cassius in your indoor spaces as well, like bedrooms, garages, home offices and rec rooms.

The Cassius is available in four finishes, and all four finishes come with reversible blades. Choose the matching blade finish for a tonal, modern look, or choose the side with a soft wood tone to add a rustic look for your farmhouse style spaces.

This versatile ceiling fan features WhisperWind® motor technology for powerful yet quiet air performance. Installing it to a vaulted ceiling like the Gaines? You might need an angled ceiling adapter and extension downrod, which you can explore in our ceiling fan accessories.

Be sure to catch the episode re-run and be on the lookout for the Cassius ceiling fan!

How to achieve farmhouse style in your home

Hunter Fan Company Designer Patrick O'Connell Our dining room table has a rustic finish, so no matter how wild my kids are being, it’s predistressed; I don’t have to worry about them scratching the wood or leaving fingerprint behind.

I think that’s part of the appeal of farmhouse design: It’s low maintenance. You don’t have to overanalyze your child’s behavior with rustic décor.

Modern farmhouse design also the perfect blend of a lot of trends: rustic, industrial and modern. The rustic and distressed finishes pair beautifully with the dark ironwork and exposed hardware of industrial, while the sleek lines of modern design gives it a touch of elegance.

Farmhouse is also about more than family-friendly décor; it’s about family as a whole. It embraces easy living lifestyle where families are in the center and you’re spending time with each other, that’s why you’re seeing more and more open concept spaces associated with farmhouse design.

So how do you achieve this modern farmhouse look? My design team and I have some ideas.

Patrick O’Connell is the Design Director for Hunter Fan Company.

 

GALLEY KITCHENS

It’s definitely evolved and definitely fitting what people want to do where each room is not necessarily purposed for what it’s supposed to do. The kitchen is a gathering space, it’s an office, it’s where kids do their homework.
Christine Holmes, Designer

WE LOVE THE SOFT MODERN AKER CEILING FAN, ESPECIALLY IN BLACK, OR RUSTIC FINISHES OF THE DONEGAN CEILING FAN IN THE 44″ BLADE SPAN FOR A FARMHOUSE KITCHEN.

 

SUBWAY TILE

Every farmhouse kitchen has subway tile. It’s timeless and classic, but can lend itself to modern design elements. It’s also easy to clean, so it goes back to the idea that family friendly idea of farmhouse style.
Claire McRoberts, Designer

WRAP AROUND PORCHES

Porches, especially wrap around porches, are an integral part of farmhouse architecture. We have some farmhouse ceiling fans with rustic finishes that are damp rated for patios that would look perfect on these porches while keeping everyone cool.

THE OCALA CEILING FAN OR KEY BISCAYNE CEILING FAN HAVE RUSTIC FINISHES WITH TOUCHES OF METAL WORK THAT WOULD FIT PERFECTLY ON A FARMHOUSE PORCH.

SHIPLAP

Joanna Gaines has us obsessed with shiplap! (I wonder if we can put shiplap on a fan…) Whether it’s a floor, a wall, a ceiling, you’ve got to have wood paneling for the farmhouse look.

BLACK ACCENTS

Black window trim and metal railings offer a modern twist on farmhouse décor. It gives stairwells with traditional shiplap walls and rustic flooring a sleek modern yet industrial touch.

THE CASSIUS CEILING FAN OR CHRONICLE CEILING FAN IN BLACK COMPLEMENTS THE BLACK METALWORK ACCENTS OF A FARMHOUSE ROOM.

Don’t judge a fan by its size

Small in size but big in air movement: The 34-inch Watson has been around since 2012, but for 2016 we’re introducing this classic ceiling fan in a fresh finish.
