Modern Farmhouse Design Style: A Timeless Look for Your Home

February 07 2023 – Jayne Graham



At Cranmore Home & Co we refer to Farmhouse style quite often, we even have one of our key collections as Farmhouse Style Furniture.  

Farmhouse design is a timeless style that has been around for centuries. It's a classic look that evokes the feeling of being in the countryside, with its rustic charm and cosy atmosphere. In recent years, modern farmhouse design has become increasingly popular, combining traditional elements with contemporary touches to create a unique and inviting space. In this blog post, we'll explore all about modern farmhouse design style and how you can incorporate it into your home.

What is Modern Farmhouse Design You May Ask?
Modern farmhouse design is a mix of traditional and contemporary elements. It combines the rustic charm of a country home with modern touches such as sleek lines and minimalistic homewares. The overall look is cosy yet sophisticated, creating an inviting atmosphere that feels both comfortable and stylish. Many people make the mistake of overdoing it by adding too much furniture and homewares. It’s important to envision the humble lifestyle that farmers conduct when you are planning your farmhouse interiors. Sometimes less is more!

Key Elements of Modern Farmhouse Design.
When it comes to modern farmhouse design, there are certain key elements that help create the look. These include natural materials such as wood, stone, and brick; neutral colors; simple furniture; vintage-inspired accents; and distressed finishes. By incorporating these elements into your home, you can create a warm and inviting space that feels like it's straight out of the countryside.

How to Incorporate Modern Farmhouse Design Into Your Home.
If you're looking to incorporate modern farmhouse design into your home, there are several ways to do so. Start by choosing neutral colours for your walls such as white or light grey. Then add natural materials like wood floors or stone countertops to give the space an organic feel. Next, choose furniture with simple lines such as sofas with tufted cushions or chairs with spindle legs. If you love a bit of colour you can also go for a velvet inspired sofa with colour similar to our Loft 3.5 Seater Ochre sofa by Canvas and Sasson below.

Finally, add vintage-inspired accents like rustic pendant lights or table lamps to complete the look. And don't forget a soft floor rug for underfoot.  Whether it is stripes to compliment your simple furniture or a hand-knotted rug that is heavily textured with a calming palette to complement wood accents, stone and clay. A good floor rug is the ultimate piece to create an uncomplicated farmhouse aesthetic.
