It’s hard not to fall in love with the farmhouse style. After all, it conjures a simple, warm and homey aura. 

With these tips, we’ll help you achieve that gorgeous farmhouse look with a modern flair.

Add a harvest table

Harvest tables are simple, practical and look great in all kinds of interiors. Adding a harvest table is one of the best ways to achieve a modern farmhouse style without going overboard. Find something that’s made of vintage or reclaimed wood to achieve that classic and charming farmhouse vibe, then match it up with comfy, modern chairs. 

For instance, this rustic pine table will sit perfectly in your modern farmhouse dining area. 

Add a Barn Door

Nothing brings back the farmhouse nostalgia like a barn door. Not only have they become popular over the years as a modern farmhouse staple, but they are also great in saving floor space. Unlike common doors that require clearance for opening, they simply slide along the wall. If you don’t have access to a traditional barn door, you can mount vintage doors on sliders to create the same effect. 

Keep Your Antiques

When it comes to classic farmhouse decorating, you can never go wrong with an antique. 

Blending modern with vintage gives you the best of both worlds, because you can keep your precious antiques while giving them a whole new life and purpose. If you’re looking for more vintage pieces to add to your modern farmhouse collection, consider bringing home this custom-painted antique cabinet.

Paint Old Furniture

One benefit of a modern farmhouse style is that you don’t need a whole new set of furniture to achieve the look. In fact, the more you can incorporate pieces you already own, the better! Just freshen up a piece with paint and you get furniture that looks new but still retains its vintage vibe. 

This custom chalk paint in cotton really gives this vintage armoire a facelift.

However, note that some pieces are better left in their natural color, so feel free to seek professional advice if you’re unsure which furniture can be repainted. Just take a look at this beauty, which is perfect for your modern farmhouse kitchen.

Mix and Match

Traditional farmhouse designs typically included lots of simple wood furniture, especially those that feature clean and simple lines. If you want to add a modern twist, it’s important to add a layer of comfort. Consider balancing out the wood and other natural materials by accenting the room with throw pillows, blankets, and comfy chairs. You can also mix pops of color into your decor instead of going all neutral. Just be careful not to overdo it!

Styles are classic for a reason and the farmhouse style has been well-loved for a long time! By following our tips above, you can create a living space that’s warm, homey and current.
