Barnyard Beauties

While the “modern farmhouse” design style may sound like an oxymoron to most, it’s music to an interior designer’s ears! Rustic around the edges, modern in the middle, and forever stylish, modern farmhouse interiors are the perfect blend of function, fashion and complete comfort. Give your homestead the ultimate barnyard chic treatment by layering in some stylish shiplap, a farmhouse kitchen island, and a few galvanized accents; mixing them in with their more modern counterparts; and blending it all together with seamless style.

Born in a Barn

You don’t have to be born in a barn to appreciate the appeal of a modern farmhouse! Take sliding barn doors, for example—this country classic maintains its look but adopts the clean lines and finish of a more modern door to create the perfect combination. Fashionable, functional and full of character, this modern blend of country and contemporary will make any room in your home feel stylish before you even open the door.

Pro-Tip: If you’re squeamish about installing a full-blown sliding barn door, try applying the look to your closet or cabinet doors! Just make sure to keep their color a clean white or black to preserve the modernity.

Rustic Around the Edges

Everyone’s style is a little rough around the edges at times. But that’s exactly why we love the modern farmhouse look so much, it embraces our style imperfections! All it takes is being a touch more intentional with them: you can start by planting a few natural elements about your space. Wood, brick, and any other earthy tones will evoke that rustic feel and appeal. If you want to go all out, bring a professional builder in to expose any wooden support beams your home might have. If you’re thinking smaller scale, harvest a few reclaimed wood end-tables, place a few wicker baskets about, and your modern farmhouse will begin to take shape.

Modern in the Middle

For a city slicker hoping to bring the barnyard chic look into the home, embracing your more rustic side is important—but there still needs to be a healthy dose of modern design elements, too! Larger modern pieces like sofas, love-seats and area rugs create crisp, contemporary focal points, allowing you to fill the backdrop with more subtle modern farmhouse features. Once those modern pieces are in place, accent them with a classic example of a country element gone contemporary—shiplap! Traditionally used on the exterior of barns, sheds and outbuildings, this wooden wall siding has gotten a modern makeover and made its way to the great indoors. Lap up some white, wide-paneled shiplap from floor to ceiling in any room of your home to smooth out any rustic edges your interior might have and set the modern farmhouse scene.

Forever Stylish

Balancing the rugged with the refined is what the modern farmhouse look is all about. To perfectly encapsulate this stylistic contradiction in a single space, with a single feature, bring your next barnyard chic fixin’ to the kitchen! Simply saunter on over to your table or island and take a gander—if the table is more modern than farmhouse, swap your current seating options out with rustic wooden stools. If your table is more rural than urban, trade those matching seats for a mixed assortment of modern benches and contemporary chairs! And if you’re ready to fully commit to the barnyard chic lifestyle, install a harvest table kitchen island and set it apart with some stylish 21st century stools!

Pro-Tip: Pair that modern harvest table with a stylish farmhouse sink to show what modern fashion and farmhouse function look like when they live together in harmony.
