The Modern Farmhouse: 12 Style Trends

The Modern Farmhouse-12 Style Trends

Ahh, the modern farmhouse, we can’t seem to get enough of it lately. From its sleek lines to its clean & cozy aesthetic, there is something in this easy living style for everyone. The idea that has captivated me the most about this style is the endless ways you can interpret it and make it your own. Starting my blog 4 years ago I was enamored with this design philosophy and began to chronicle my own modern country home journey, hence came the name City Farmhouse. As I focused on decorating our new farmhouse I realized that by combining the 2 contrasting styles it gave my home an authentic feel it was needing. This style has recently come to the forefront of design and shown to be a creative and innovative leader in purposeful living. Although there are vast ways to translate this tend, here are 12 style do’s when it comes to crafting a home with modern farmhouse flair…

Do use white and mix materials. White is a hot color when it comes to farmhouse living, on the exterior as well as on the interior. When this classic and crisp color is paired with industrial and non-conventional materials it becomes a perfect match.

Joined with the modern material of the stair rails these walls become a focal point that screams style.

Part of the charm and authenticity about this style is the ability to mix and match different styles under the umbrella of “modern farmhouse”. Keeping continuity with a repeated color palette helps to make this look feel cohesive.

Black trim & frames, yes! Am I the only one wanting to repaint my doors and frames black? Wow, what a look when paired with white and warm woods. It adds a bit of panache to the traditional farmhouse look that is utterly swoon worthy.

Add modern elements like lighting and bold geometric patterns into the mix. Oh and while you are at it, maybe a little gray. The contrast between the details, especially within a neutral space can have a big visual impact.

Reclaimed & warm wood tones will always be a player when it comes to modern farmhouse living. When paired with more contemporary components like glass and marble it is a stunning stand out.

Less can be more with this style. Clean lines with a minimalist approach can take a space in a whole other direction. By layering in texture and warmer tones to the crisp, mod look this new style emerges.
