If it comes to interior design, the contemporary farmhouse is a fashion that I could get on board with every moment. There is a real charm to it, with hot comfy textures and a simple but striking color scheme. The simple fact that it integrates industrial components, such as spacious shelving, pendant light, galvanized metal, and swinging barn doors, makes it easier to fall in love with this style of décor.
You have to check at the popularity of Processor and Joanne Gaines from Fixer Upper to determine why the contemporary farmhouse design works so well. Joanna epitomizes this design with her interior design — if you have not caught an episode yet, it’s a must-watch, actually just for the beginning of chemistry between this bunch. Additionally, her shop Magnolia is a farmhouse paradise.
Described as rustic yet elegant, the key to making this interior work in your own house is mixing old with new.
The beauty of contemporary farmhouse décor is the fact that it balances both feminine and masculine elements of design, creating the perfect family home.
Today I wanted to discuss some of my preferred interiors in this category, as well as showing you how you can find a similar look yourself on the high street — starting with this stunning project from Amber Interiors.
This inbuilt black cabinetry with glass inserts makes a new focal point to the area while showing slightly more conventional ceramics, glassware, cookery books, and vases. There’s a real juxtaposition between materials within this room, as black marble sits on top of this wooden island, and wood bar stools play host into leather seat cushions. If you’re trying to upgrade your kitchen in a modern farmhouse style, think about open shelving for a relaxed, lived-in feel.
A natural means to some little modern farmhouse flair to your existing décor would be to utilize reclaimed wood and classic furniture. Take this old beaten-up wooden seat, used to maintain beautiful things within this modern white tiled bathroom — the bits that tie these two together would be the Turkish towels and woven carpet, including a tactile”bridge” between both elements.
This office layout, meanwhile, uses the black color palette modern farmhouse is famed for. Wrought iron curtain poles with cream linen curtains are a secure method of translating this style to your own home. With brands such as Terry’s Fabrics, that possess a wide variety of curtain fabric for sale, you don’t need to rely on the high street to provide the tremendous contemporary farmhouse window dressings. This works exceptionally well against the chevron background and wooden wall paneling. Additionally, the classic desk and stylish office chair once more show how blending old with new functions flawlessly.
If that is an interior design you are fond of, I’ve pulled together some of my favorite bits available to purchase today — from furniture investments to accessories suited to a contemporary farmhouse interior.
