Do you favor a traditional style, but also like to accent your home with some modern pieces? If so, you’ll definitely like the modern farmhouse style, which has become increasingly popular. Modern farmhouse decorating is defined by creating a warm, welcoming and cozy environment, accented with traditional pieces juxtaposed with modern elements, exposed woods, galvanized steel, and neutral tones throughout.
A few principles to start with:
1) Don’t throw anything out!
We bet you have a lot of hand-me-down and antique pieces that will lend themselves perfectly to the modern farmhouse aesthetic. An old typewriter, tin cans and used books are perfect examples of accent pieces that will bring this look home. In addition, your old table can be transformed to fit your new modern farmhouse home with a quick paint job!
2) Paint your walls neutral colors.
The key to creating this style is to use bright, neutral colors. White, gray, swiss coffee, and beige will all work. It’s important to make sure not to veer from these wall colors too much so that the look carries over from room-to-room.
3) Keep it minimal/modern.
One of the keys to achieving the modern farmhouse look is the word modern - which encapsulates the principles of keeping it practical, tidy, clutter-free and minimal. This means lots of storage, like baskets, to hide any loose items.
