Modern Farmhouse Style


The modern farmhouse trend came onto the scene in a big way in 2020, and it is here to stay. This trend – that perfectly embraces the spirit of our time – is about creating a cosy haven where your family and friends can relax, but with a sophisticated, charismatic edge. If you're looking to add some classical and modern character to your home, read on to see how you can make this trend work for you.



What is the modern farmhouse style?
It's the perfect combo of a traditional country look with a more minimal contemporary design. It's comforting and warm, with natural elements and imperfections, yet keeping a fresh, modern look. With this trend you can enjoy everything you need to live a modern life, but with a country twist.



How to achieve the look

  • To make the look feel curated and considered as well as adding contemporary freshness, stick to a strict neutral colour scheme. Start by layering different shades of white, cream and soft grey.
  • Add a modern element with bold, contrasting patterns and colours, like blues, emerald and deeper greys. This is where you can let your personality shine and make the look your own. Be careful not to go too wild, remember to keep it calm and cosy.
  • The modern farmhouse style mixes sleek clean lines and industrial materials with cosy, natural elements and textures. Create the natural yet sophisticated vibe characteristic of this trend by pairing stones in light shades, wood and woven textures with materials like marble or granite, stainless steel and contemporary lighting.
