Sustainability and tranquillity with the use of natural, rustic materials are the highlights of Ashton and Mila’s soulful modern farmhouse. The couple wanted a home that looked like a converted barnyard with all the characteristics of raw, hard materials whilst still being current and contemporary with soft furnishings.
Architect Howard Backen from Backen & Gillam Architects steered the couple to bringing their visions to life. Kutcher and Kunis worked closely with Backen throughout the planning and construction phases from the tiny details to major structural components.
Additionally, the interior was curated by Vicky Charles from Charles & Co who is a master of mixing fabrics, patterns and textures. The furnishing choices provoke warmth and comfort with a cohesive visual language throughout.
Front of mind, Ashton and Mila wanted a sustainable property with the environment being prioritised. The home is completely powered by photovoltaics which generate power for the whole property. The couple highlights regenerative farming through their soil quality, water consumption and the food they eat.
Natural light is a reoccurring focal point throughout the home, it allows the surrounding views to hero and acts as the ultimate escape from busy L.A. Finding serenity in a home is exactly what Kutcher and Kunis achieved and has become a solid foundation for their family to grow into.
