Modern Farmhouse Colors and Trends
As you explore each room, you’ll notice how all the little details worked together to achieve the modern farmhouse look. The colors in gray, brown and white with black accents are carried through the entire space making it feel calm and peaceful, as well as cohesive. Natural wood furnishings and decorative accent pieces warm up the space and are not too delicate for daily use, which was part of the original design.
Modern Farmhouse Design Elements
This home exudes downhome comfort, with modern sophistication. Farmhouse elements that were used include reclaimed wood, metal and wrought iron accents, organic accent pieces (such as wicker or rattan), natural wood flooring, and a neutral color palette with a mix of fabrics and textures. It was important that the space was comfortable as well as livable.
Black Interior and Exterior Windows
The use of black interior and exterior windows is another popular design trend and it works very well in this modern farmhouse style. Milgard® UltraTM Series fiberglass windows and swinging patio doors in the color Black Bean look very crisp and clean against the white walls, making it bold, yet at the same time understated.
Creating a Modern Farmhouse Kitchen
The kitchen is a mix of metals and natural elements. Reclaimed wood floors and shelving feel homey, rustic lighting adds charm and the white subway tiles, cabinets and countertops keep everything crisp and clean looking.
This farmhouse sink and high neck faucet help make the kitchen easy to use and reinforces the idea that this space was designed for entertaining.
Natural and Livable
White bead board in the mudroom feels cozy and looks clean against the black accents of the drawer pulls and coat hooks. The lighting fixtures with bubble glass give an antique feel, but the wrought iron housing that surrounds it pulls in the cottage farmhouse look. Wicker baskets were added for storage and to continue the addition of natural accents throughout the house.
Indoor Outdoor Living
Because this home was designed for entertaining, the Aluminum, three panel, glass stacking wall was the perfect solution. The homeowners can easily move from indoor to outdoor living and have room for friends and family to join them.
