Modern Farmhouse

Did someone say “modern farmhouse”? Well, yes, pretty much everyone did! You can’t get much more on trend than this look that manages to update classic vintage elements to create an environment well suited to modern living. Minimalist modern style pairs beautifully with the functional austerity of the traditional farmhouse. Simple, straightforward with a usefulness that takes comfort and ease of use into account.

Today we value not just the simple beauty of the vintage utilitarian objects but the design aspects that give them a character all their own. Start with the time honored elements: white, wood and tin. Add a little bit of black to make it fresh. But leave room for some well-placed color and take the opportunity to blend in cottage style to soften the edges and take the look beyond the trend to become uniquely yours.
