7 Elements of the Modern Farmhouse

Last week we shared some favorite modern farmhouse paint colors. Because the modern farmhouse is such a favorite, this week we’re taking a second look at the style. To get a fresh space with clean lines and plenty of warmth, consider adding these modern farmhouse elements to your design.

Rustic Woods

Brooke Wagner Design

Rustic woods throughout the house create a warm sense of history to your new space. Incorporate them by using hand-scraped oak flooring (read here to see some of my favorites) ,  natural woods in the kitchen, or simply styling with wooden vases, bowls, and cutting boards.

Shiplap is a timeless wall treatment that adds interest throughout the house. I love it painted a fresh white, but it also makes a modern statement painted black or a rustic one if left raw. Read this post for more shiplap inspiration.

Black and White Cement Tile

Kitchen Design Network

Patterned tile has a beautiful old-world feel but when done in black and white can have a modern edge. I love this tile used in bathrooms, mudrooms, kitchens, laundry, or even up the stairs.

Lighting is a quick way to set the vibe of your interior. To create a modern farmhouse look, choose industrial style lighting like an iron lantern pendant or metal dome light.
