The modern farmhouse style is a combination of the traditional country style and the contemporary style. It incorporates clean lines and invites a comforting feeling to the space. Below I talk about 5 different categories that will help you achieve that modern farmhouse look you see all over Pinterest!
Materials: The materials are what draw us into this style. Seeing decor with old and natural materials like galvanized steel, washed woods, milk paint, chalk paint, wicker, and metals gets us thinking about the past. And wonder “why did they ever stop making these things there’s so cute”
Patterns: Patterns are what is the differentiation between the old farmhouse and modern farmhouse style is. We now have buffalo check, farm prints, and Rae Dunn font. But keeping the classics like knit, ruffles, and weathered wood patterns.
Colors: Whites and bold accents of blacks fit in nicely. While neutrals should make up most of the environment using decor is your chance in adding colors to your home. This is done with the natural colors in your materials, like the grey in galvanized steel, the browns in wicker, and greens in your plants.
Shapes: The decor in this style is mostly straight lines. With the exception of vases, and candle pillars which have slight curves.
Popular items: Decor pieces you are most likely to find in a home with this style are wire baskets, metal lanterns, signage on walls, and faux eucalyptus plants.
