Trending Style: Farmhouse Modern
What do you get when you mix rustic with tough industrial, contemporary sleek, and shabby chic?
Farmhouse modern has made quite a name for itself over the past few years, although pinning it down to a few aesthetics is somewhat difficult. In truth, it means different things to different people; for some it means “country,” for others “cottage,” and for others, it’s just a way to incorporate their favorite elements of collected styles.
Even if everyone can’t agree on what farmhouse modern looks like, almost everyone knows how it feels. Laid back yet sophisticated. Rustic and refined. Bare and well-dressed. Metal with hand-hewn hardwoods. It’s all about natural light, natural fibers, and natural beauty.
Really, what’s not to love?
While this trend has wide variations, there are a few elements that define farmhouse modern as its own style. Things like sliding barn doors, porcelain apron-front kitchen sinks, leather furniture, Shaker-style cabinetry, warm white walls, and matte black finishes highlight remnants of a simpler time, while pulling it into the modern aesthetic with bold accents, crisp lines, and exotic hardwoods.
The true beauty of farmhouse modern is that it’s less of a trend and more of a movement toward blending our lifestyles in with our landscapes. These are houses that welcome you in for coffee. These are houses that invite you to kick off your boots and reach into the cookie jar. These houses love clean lines but aren’t afraid to take a break and get a little messy. And, at the heart of it, that’s how farmhouse modern makes itself at home.
