My New Love: The Modern Farmhouse

by

I certainly haven’t ditched my love affair with Hamptons-style homes, but another style of home has appeared on my radar….The Modern Farmhouse. It is essentially a mix of Hamptons that is modernised with a Scandi/Industrial influence. These homes are perfectly suited to a larger block or rural property.

The exterior of the Modern Farmhouse generally has a pitched roof with a board and batten siding.

Stone or concrete is often mixed in too for interest.

One element I love is that the windows are larger to take advantage of the outdoor views and allow an abundance of natural light.

Window treatments are minimal in the living areas to take advantage of the views or garden.

The kitchens have Shaker style cabinetry but there is often a mix of metals and timbers.

Metal and wooden elements are often black, creating an industrial feel.

Shiplap walls are another feature I love in the Modern Farmhouse. Styling is simple and relaxed.

Flooring is usually a lighter timber stain. How simple but effective are these black and white family photos lining the hallway?

Colour palettes are neutral and relaxed.

  1. My absolute favourite style too Belinda. We have tried o incorporate many of these elements in our new house @urban_farmhouse_build. Nicki and Studio McGee are so talented – love there style too.

  2. I absolutely love this style – that window reminds of Smoko, just out of Bright, a house we stayed at which I found after it was featured in Australian Country Style. The combo of light, big windows and views is so arresting. Sigh. x

  3. Awesome — especially that front facade. The evergreen hedge is a ‘thing’ now, + we’re planting 10 boxwoods along our front foundation! We’re re-doing a charming Dutch colonial house.

  4. Love your home!! The bedroom is my new inspiration! Would love details for the bed (fabric color/headboard style…) is it the RH Lawson? Sand or Natural?!
