If you’re looking to add a sense of rustic charm with a hint of minimalism, modern farmhouse home décor is what you need. This style brings with it a relaxed spirit that’s warm and inviting. When decorating your living space, get inspired by JCPenney’s farmhouse furniture and décor pieces that are equal parts utilitarian, organic, refined, and country yet eclectic.
Here’s what to consider when creating a modern farmhouse interior.
Choose Organic and Natural Materials
Everyone loves the down-to-earth feel modern farmhouse style brings to the home. This charming vibe comes with organic and natural home accents. So, we suggest choosing natural, low-shine materials like this storage bench and faux hide rug to replicate the everyday appeal of modern farmhouse décor. Similarly, you can reach for a wooden spindle chair, powder-coated lanterns with fresh foliage, and metal-edged pendant lamps for an eclectic style. We recommend avoiding using home furniture or décor items made using plastic, lucite, and anything overtly unnatural. Also, refrain from choosing style elements in bright, bold hues like red, pink, or orange.
Tip: Source as many organic and handcrafted finds as possible.
Look for Color Contrasts
Neutral hues are the foundation of a modern farmhouse setting. So, you can embrace this home décor style by opting for shades of whites and gray for the walls. To create visual contrast, choose furniture in brown and black shades, and a wild mix of decorative pieces, particularly throw pillows, chairside tables, mirrors, and reflective surfaces that blend in perfectly. As a golden rule, mix and match high and low, old and new for a rich modern farmhouse interior that evokes low-key luxury. Consider injecting old-school country elements that help create color contrasts, like brass wall plates and gingham valances, cushions, or dinnerware.
Tip: An additional benefit of selecting white walls is that it helps a space look bigger and less cramped, particularly when combined with reflective décor elements like wall mirrors and galvanized steel coffee tables.
Go for Textures
From handwoven wicker trunks and trays to weathered faucets and buckets, there is an endless list of textured décor pieces you can use to complete your beautiful modern farmhouse design. We suggest bringing in rustic sconces, wall clocks, mugs, and bar stools as they’ll also lend sophistication to your home. Textured elements make your rooms unique and visually interesting. Other massive statement pieces include textured room dividers, vintage windows, and a sliding barn door.
Tip: Stylize the home with accessories featuring a variety of textures, like a soft cable knit blanket, wicker planter, prints of fern leaves, and a woven basket filled with fresh flowers or unique vintage finds and trinkets.
