Modern farmhouse style is about decorating your home in a classic, elegant and comfortable way.  It is about keeping things simple with neutral tones yet adding personality to your home.

Colour/Neutral Tones

The interior of a modern farmhouse is painted in light coloured and neutral tones, usually white to reflect light and add warmth with the use of natural timber pieces.

The kitchen is usually the heart and soul of any home but more so in a Modern Farmhouse style home.  A place where family gather for meals and to talk about the events of the day.  My kitchen is the heart of my home and I love that my family can gather there to cook, share a meal and chat.

The Modern Farmhouse Kitchen uses extensive wood paneling and hardwood floors.  The island bench may be a different colour to the other cupboards in the kitchen and metal pendant lights hanging over the island bench.

Vintage with a Modern Touch

Unlike many other decorating styles modern farmhouse allows you to put together an eclectic mix of pieces.  Whether you use a painted vintage side table or add warmth to your dining space with a timber farmhouse dining table.

Fresh Flowers/Foliage

You know I just love fresh flowers and foliage in a home.  Whether you are using a handpicked bouquet of flowers from the garden or a white bunch of hydrangeas from your local florist.  Pop them in a jug or place your vase in a basket.
