    Use Wooden Accents For A Rustic Feel

    One of the quickest ways to give your home a more rustic feel is to add wooden accents. Some of the most common wooden accents I’ve seen in modern farmhouse homes include doors, beams, furniture, counter tops, planked walls, shutters, etc. Feel free to mix in some painted and non painted wooden accents for variation.

    Keep It Modern With Industrial Elements

    Much of what makes modern farmhouse so special is the combination of old and new. Very often, modern industrial elements give every farmhouse design a sense of charm through the use of exposed brick, black accents, and mixed metals. Feature modern industrial elements in light fixtures, accent walls, door knobs, furniture, etc.

    Incorporate The Classic Farmhouse Look

    Don’t hesitate to add some classic farmhouse elements in your home. Sliding barn doors are a very popular choice to do just that. Another good idea is to get creative with mason jars. They make great cups, vases, candle holders, and more! You can find inspiration by looking at old magazines or media that represent more traditional country design and pick the elements you like the most. This will instantly make your farmhouse design feel a bit more authentic.

    Choose The Right Color Scheme

    Modern farmhouse color schemes tend to be quite simple, following a more light and airy approach. You may choose some neutral or creamy colors for walls and furniture, such as lighter shades of white, grey, or beige. Add variation in your color scheme with cooler greens or blues.

    Have Fun With Your Decor

    Have fun with your decorations. Farmhouse decor often features light hearted quotes about family, friends, or life, on wall art, pillows, etc. Anything that you associate with comfort, such as thick blankets, quilts, pillows, candles, plants, etc make great decorations for modern farmhouse homes.
