While a neutral and natural color palette is key to achieving a modern farmhouse style, you can choose to go with warm or cool hues, or even a delicate balance of both. A few colors that first come to mind are creamy buttermilk, soft sage green, and a wide array of peaceful grays and blues. While your overall color scheme will be light and neutral, feel free to add pops of your favorite colors through accent pieces.
Use Natural Fibers

If you’re going for the farmhouse feel, you must stay true to the style’s commitment to bringing the outdoors in, as well as provide a rich variety of textures through natural fibers. A mix of raw, and often repurposed, materials are important to the authenticity of this rustic style. Popular components would be solid wood, such as reclaimed barnwood details, shiplap and wide plank flooring. Textiles could include burlap, wool, cotton, chenille and homespun linen for accent pieces, such as rugs, blankets, curtains and pillows.
Add in Mixed Metals
Bring sophistication to your home by sourcing a variety of mixed metals into your decor. Wrought iron, galvanized steel and additional metal accents can be added through lighting fixtures, railings and furnishings, such as etageres. These industrial elements will balance the country charm to help you master that new rustic look.
Less is More
While there is a little bit of overlap in decorating tips between farmhouse and country, one main difference lies in how you accessorize. Farmhouse has a less cluttered and kitschy approach to these details. When picking out home accessories, lean on Marie Kondo’s minimalist concept and ask yourself: does this spark joy?
As we’ve mentioned, a main component of the modern farmhouse feel is raw and repurposed materials. This adds to the relaxed charm that most likely made you fall in love with the style in the first place. Reclaimed barnwood details, shabby chic cottage furniture, vintage signage, and distressed hardwares are popular ways to achieve this step.
Comfort is Key
To complete a new rustic style, avoid anything that feels stiff or uptight. Focus on furniture and home decor items that evoke all the warm and cozy vibes you could possibly imagine. Big comfy throw pillows, soft blankets and a cushy couch that makes you want to sit back and unwind.
