The answer is yes and no. No to the cluttered overly antique stuffed style of a country farmhouse. And yes, to today’s Modern Farmhouse. The original “farmhouse style” has evolved into a modern style, which is why it remains popular and will continue to be a homeowner favorite. What makes this style so popular is the very thing that sustains its longevity. It simply feels like home.
For many of us memories of summers spent at the country home of grandparents or the nostalgia of longing for a simpler life outside the city, makes “farmhouse” style something familiar or comfortable like our favorite pair of jeans. It just fits us.
What makes Farmhouse still popular is its merging with modern elements
The stark contrast of black and white, creates a clean base for the color palette and fits the minimal decluttered lifestyle we desire. Gone is the cluttered, overly accessorized look of the original country farmhouse. Today’s farmhouse is careful curated, with accents and furnishings. Gone are the rooms filled with antiques, now we select one special vintage find, or family heirloom, to add the patina of life to a room. Modern Farmhouse is a mix. A carefully curated mix of Minimal Design elements, mixed with Modern and Farmhouse.
So, what part of Farmhouse Design remains?
- Farmhouse sinks mixed with modern clean lined cabinetry
- Iron Beds with layers of simple bedding in natural fabrics and neutral colors
- Modern artwork mixed with vintage furniture
- Metal hardware mixed with modern neutral drapery panels
- Plants from herbs to accent greenery
What Are the Best Window Treatments for Modern Farmhouse Style?
Choose clean-lined roller shades or roman shades for a tailored look. Sleek and modern in neutral colors they function well and are not overly fussy, keeping with the minimal styling of Modern Farmhouse. Black shades are a great contrast with white walls or choose white shades for a clean bright look.
Accent with drapery panels for softness and texture. Choose organic fabrics like linen, cotton, or linen blends, in styles that again are tailored and modern. Pair with black iron drapery hardware for contrast and that touch of industrial, a nod to the original farmhouse style.
