Get the look: Modern Farmhouse 

Modern farmhouse brings together the old and the new, the rustic and the refined. Get inspired and bring a touch of classic and cosy country style into your home.

Modern farmhouse style delivers a contemporary spin on tried-and-true country classics. Marrying clean lines with rustic details and contemporary palettes with old-world charm, homes that celebrate the modern farmhouse aesthetic are timeless yet on-trend. Full of eclectic character, this no-fuss style is ideal for busy family life.

So, if you are ready to update your interior with a bit of 21st century rural-inspired design, here are the must-have features you need to achieve the coveted modern farmhouse look.

Cosiness Counts 

Today’s architecture is sleek and clean. We lean toward whites and greys, low-profile fittings, and minimalist accents. Modern farmhouse throws these interior ideals out the window, celebrating the imperfect and the quirky, the honest and the raw. Wool blankets, textured details, vintage accents, and warm wood tones transform the cold and unhospitable into a cosy haven.
