A contemporary yet cozy style allows for more personality than city sleek modern and more calm than traditional rustic stylings with an added touch of industrial elements. It's quite a new style, so I've explained the style in more detail below to help you get that modern farmhouse style in your own home.

The touch of galvanized metal offers décor versatility, and they are romantic yet have sleek modern style to them.   

Modern farmhouse décor has a fresh look, but incorporates natural elements and emphasizes imperfections throughout. It's all about mixing comfortable furniture with reclaimed materials.

Modern farmhouse décor is the contemporary take on the known rustic style, so it offers everything you need to live a modern life, but still with farmhouse charm.”

This decorating style gives you a sense of warmth and comfort. It's traditional without being fussy, classic without being like a museum, and comfortable in a way that makes you want to sit down and relax.

 

Modern Farmhouse Storage Cabinet

As you can see, this cabinet is typically rustic in style, and features a distressed wood finish. The two metal framed sliding glass doors make it the ultimate modern farmhouse accent. 

CHARACTERISTICS 

Colors:

Modern farmhouse décor relies on a neutral color palette of warm or cool neutrals (for example: cream, beige, light sage and grey), then layer in some natural wood tones. Adding pops of black (like wrought iron accents) will create a perfectly balanced backdrop for rugs and furnishings.  

Accessories:

Farmhouse elements can be incorporated, but don't go overboard. A few well-placed accessories are all you need to complete the look. If you can find reclaimed wood, or décor that looks a bit "banged up" that would be the perfect addition to add personality and charm to the room.

Fabrics:

Due to the neutral color palette you can use a variety of textures, wood an metals and mix fabrics like wool, cotton, and canvas. For maximum visual impact, I usually decorate with chunky wool blankets.

Furniture:

Functional and comfortable family-friendly furniture. Don't forget to be on the look out for that unique authentic vintage piece that will provide personality to the room.
