Details of Farmhouse Style

It's certainly not called country and it’s the new favorite of many designers and bloggers… it’s Modern Farmhouse. Yes, Chip and Joanna Gaines have led the resurgence of this comfortable look but actually it has its roots coming from shabby chic and eclectic styles with a modern twist.

So specifically there are a few ways to send you in the right direction designing for a modern farmhouse style. You want to look for furniture pieces that have texture and patina and then pair them with chairs that are slipped covered in a linen, preferably, or pair them with a unique chair that also has texture, like a chair with a cane seat. Colors tend to be in neutral tones with accent colors being soft and muted. Accessories to look for would be glass vases with textural elements carefully arranged, old patina silver, old wood cheese boards or bowls, open shelving and anything really that has an unique look. To top it off, don't forget to add a barn door and a great rug. These are a few tips to get you started but there are so much more. Happy Saturday Y'all!
