Not Just Barn Doors: 5 Tips for Perfectly Polished Modern Farmhouse Design
From raw wood dining tables and weathered media stands, to nature-inspired hues and clean lines, farmhouse interior design is anything but old-fashioned. Getting up-to-date is all in the little details. Here are 5 tips for a perfectly polished modern farmhouse design:
Tip #1: Used Not Abused
We’re loving this kitchen with its leather pendant light. Add a repurposed railroad track found in a nearby field, plus flooring made of tinted cement tile and you’ve got modern farmhouse down to a t…or a rail.
Tip #2: Opt for Color
When you think of farmhouse design, chances are you think of a lot of white. And while white is a cornerstone, this style works well with color, too. Case in point, this purely modern farmhouse kitchen painted with Benjamin Moore Rose Quartz walls and Starry Night cabinetry.
Tip #3: No Fuss
Farmhouse design doesn’t have to be fussy. Clean lines can equal rustic chic, too. Bleached wood, golden leather accents, and a blue and white fabric headboard add great farmhouse touches without being overly intricate.
Tip #4: Go Black and White
There is a cool factor surrounding black and white interiors. Pop in a vintage tub and you have the makings of a unique bathroom that’s equal parts hip and charming.
Tip #5: Add Industrial
A few industrial touches goes a long way to update the traditional look of farmhouse design, making it more modern. Here, vintage kilim rugs and rustic wood accents get a modern twist with an industrial ladder and cabinet hardware.
