Style Guide: Modern Farmhouse

 

Welcome to the second edition of my Style Guide Series where I highlight a trending style and describe what makes it unique.  Hopefully you can use this series to hone in on your likes and dislikes and identify your own style!

My first installment featured what I like to call “Industrial Chic”, the blend of urban edge and utilitarian design.  This week, I’ll be focussing on a style I like to call “Modern Farmhouse.”  Modern Farmhouse delivers rustic and nostalgic elegance with a fresh, modern twist.

Currently this is my favorite style as I often find myself gravitating towards these elements and “pinning” examples on my boards.  You may be asking, which characteristics are associated with Modern Farmhouse?  Crisp whites and contrasting blacks, painted wood paneling, muted florals, pops of “barn red,” hand-forged metals, farm or apron front sinks, and antique bronze finishes, just to name a few.  I believe this modern farmhouse style is currently popular because of its comfy lived-in feel achieved through recognizable elements, but done in a clean and minimalistic way.

Here are some beautiful examples of this Modern Farmhouse style.

Style Guide: Industrial Chic

Welcome to my first installment to my Style Guide series, where I take a closer look at unique styles for your home!

One of my favorite current trends is “Industrial Chic” decor. Industrial Chic blends the urban edge of utilitarian design with the warmth of aged woods and worn textures. The easiest way to add industrial elements to your home is through accessories. Industrial accessories can be mixed with just about any style. In traditional settings, it can bring a masculine, modern edge. Conversely in a modern setting, it can add depth and warmth. 

Here are some examples of this new style, Industrial Chic….

1. Sepia-tones gives this bedroom a vintage look. The iron globe chandelier, worn suitcases and counterpoised tasks lamps are all elements of industrial decor.

2. This great room is an example of how you can use industrial finishes such as the exposed architectural beams and industrial hood. The worn, greige (grey + beige) hardwood floors are the perfect foundation for the mix of woods in the room. Last but not least, the iron-swivel stools with rustic wood seats are great industrial accessories!
