The modern farmhouse look is no longer just for the countryside! This on-trend look combines traditional farmhouse style with the sleek, clean lines of contemporary design to create a unique style that’s both sophisticated and simple. By following a few design principles, this look can be achieved by anyone, anywhere!
Evaluate Your Space
Create a well-designed room by first defining your focal point. Decide on what you want to be the first thing you see when entering the room. This could be anything with a unique color, shape, or size. Whether you choose an architectural feature, like a fireplace or bay window, a stunning sofa or an eye-catching piece of wall-art, you’ll want to build your room around that focal point in order to ensure a stylish room that feels balanced and well put together.
Decide on a Color Palette
Set the tone of your room with a high-contrast color scheme. Think black, dark greys, and wooden elements mixed with light neutrals, like whites, creams, or beiges for a classic farmhouse look. This color scheme should be incorporated into your walls, flooring, furniture, and décor for a streamlined, sophisticated feel.
Soften It Up
The modern farmhouse look is all about simple design within a comfortable atmosphere. When choosing seating for a room, keep this in mind and opt for large, upholstered chairs that are big on comfort. The Upholstered Ivie Upholstered Side Chairs and the matching Ivie Upholstered Dining Bench in this look perfectly match the room’s color scheme and also add visual interest to the room because of the tufting, distressed legs, and nail head trim detail that featured in this collection.
Add Wood Elements
One of the classic characteristics of this style is the presence of woodwork. Adding wood furniture and accents is a must for any farmhouse look and is also a great way to add warmth to any home. This look incorporates a large distressed dining room table, a distressed curio, and variety of wood accents that brings a rustic appeal to the room, while also fitting into the black and white color scheme for a cohesive looking space.
Finish your look by mixing and matching old and new styles, textures, and materials throughout the room. In this look, industrial elements were mixed with vintage elements to create that collected, homey feel that is synonymous with the farmhouse style.
