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.

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?
