Dream Home: The New (More Sophisticated) Modern Farmhouse

aaNovo Design + Build / Sarah Shields Photo

For years no one could get enough of the Modern Farmhouse vibe with its crisp color palette, black frame windows, and shiplapped walls. But as you know, design has turned toward the traditional with creamier whites, darker woods, and softer lines, making the Modern Farmhouse of a few years ago feels a little cold. Today’s dream home beautifully shows how to update the look, infusing the white modern farmhouse aesthetic with the warmer sophistication of the English country cottage. Take a look how creamier tones, darker woods, and organic textures can still feel fresh and modern.
