How to Master the Modern Farmhouse Style
What is it about the farmhouse style that has us hooked? The barn doors, vintage accessories, natural wood accents and apron sinks remind us of a simpler time and way of life. This country-inspired look took over Pinterest and never left. Now, the charming aesthetic continues to evolve and inspire, adapting for a new generation of decorators and designers. The new ‘modern’ take on the traditional farmhouse aesthetic doesn't mean you lose any of the rustic beauty of the original style. It simply accents with modern touches—like warm gold or copper appliances, stone countertops, updated fabrics, and matte black accents. This take on the farmhouse look has found its way onto our screens with famous designers like Joanna Gaines embracing it and creating numerous iconic designs inspired by it. Whether you discovered it on Instagram or Pinterest or via HGTV, here's how to bring the farmhouse style into your own home.
