Style Guide: Modern Farmhouse

Modern Farmhouse style has taken over the home décor scene. With Pinterest readily available to show never ending inspiration of dreamy bright white kitchens, ship-lapped walls, and country inspired furniture, it is no surprise that this is a sought-after style. Warm, practical, and cozy mixed with the sophistication of modern style, modern farmhouse is a happy place of comfort and trendy. It is a melding of the old and new, inviting yet stylish.

Incorporating Modern Farmhouse

Leaning into the modern aspect, and a bit away from the rustic features of traditional farmhouse, we see less clutter with modernity. It is comfort with sophistication. Common features found in modern farmhouse style include reclaimed wood accents, barn doors, comfortable neutral furniture, exposed beams, and touches of vintage country.

  • Colour is a key player in achieving this style. Playing within the neutrals, a base of whites, creams & greys dominates the colour palette. From this base is where we begin to layer in the natural elements of wood and greenery to break up the monochrome. Black accents can help to break up the area and add in some contrast as well.
  • Mixing textiles, and materials helps to complete the space. Mixed metals, woods, and fabrics bring depth into the space. This can be achieved through textured fabrics, metal décor pieces as well as lights and hardware, and wood furniture.
  • As for accessories, there should be a variety, but not cluttered. Thought out, well placed accents are perfect for adding in the coziness of farmhouse, while still appealing to the modernity of this style.
