Modern Farmhouse Interiors

It’s everywhere, from articles to social media posts; interior designers, bloggers and homeowners alike are loving this new emerging trend: Modern Farmhouse interiors.


Characterised by simple and organic cues of traditional country house interior design, this style offers natural charm by blending contemporary and traditional qualities.


There’s a distinct relaxed ambience in modern Farmhouse interiors that stems from light beige and cream shades as the architectural work maximises light intake with large feature windows. Infused with industrial accents, exposed beams and brickwork offer an authentic depiction of a traditional Farmhouse aesthetic.


Whether you live on a farm or just admire the style, we’re here to share the secrets and tell you the few key design elements to getting this trend spot on!


Tip 1 IconTimber Cladding and Features

Timber is a fundamental material used in Farmhouse interiors as the natural texture of the wood offers a classic rustic aesthetic. Achieving this look in your home is relatively simple. Feature the timber effect in your floors and walls by incorporating weathered or reclaimed timber flooring and wood for wall panelling. For a cost effective and durable option, opt for timber luxury vinyl tiles or laminate as this imitates the appearance of real wood flooring without the expense!


There’s plenty of vinyl flooring options available so keep the tones of your interior in mind. If styling from scratch, you can choose the decorative aspects before furnishing. If you’re renovating but keeping your original furnishings, consider the shades and tones of these features and style floors and walls accordingly.


For a truly unique statement, apply slim, longline timber boards or beams to the ceiling. You may choose to fill the entire ceiling or keep it understated with a few beams. Overwhelming the interior with timber cladding can render an unattractive effect. The best way to style this trend is to mix up the materials by incorporating carpets, rugs and wall paint to separate the materials.


Apply beige, stone, off-white and cream shades to achieve the modern style. These shades offer tranquillity and sereneness whilst soft materials in carpets and rugs provide comfort and cosy connotations of traditional Farmhouse interiors.


For a cohesive fit, include timber and wooden based furniture, artwork and decorative accessories in your property. This may include chairs, desks, coffee tables, lanterns and storage systems.




Tip 2 IconSoft Fabrics and Simple Textiles

Modern Farmhouse interiors are all about combining sleek clean lines of contemporary design with rustic and warm qualities to acquire a fresh take on the style.


Adhering to a neutral colour palette, embrace a varied mix of soft fabrics in carpets, rugs, cushions and curtains. The sensation of soft fabrics provides a physical comfort, affecting our emotional state as it relaxes our senses. Natural based materials such as cotton, flannel, lace, linen, tulle, and wool can be blended to establish a light and airy aura.


Classic patterns and varied textures in large and small furnishings affect visual depth perception, attaining the sense of warmth that is synonymous of traditional Country house style.


Tip 3 IconIndustrial Accents & Pieces

Add finishing touches to your interior with industrial accents and pieces. Metal light fixtures and door hardware are highly recommended due to their visual and functional attributes.


In keeping with the modern approach, choose door handles on rose for their sleek appearance while injecting some visual depth to an interior with duo chrome finish. Featuring a gentle curve and twist lever, the duo chrome door handles appear elegant whereas square rose door handles offer a more methodical, geometric component to an interior.
