Modern Farmhouse: Interiors

May 23, 2017

By Tab Byrum

We are continuing our look at the building and decorating trend often referred to as Modern Farmhouse, today we are stepping into the Modern Farmhouse and taking a look at the interiors of some of these homes and what they all seem to have in common. As with all “types” of homes, Modern Farmhouse has certain things you can almost always find: Use of light colors, Use of natural elements, lots of wood and tile, industrial type lighting and other industrial elements. It’s easier to show you than just talking about it so let’s begin our tour and look at some of these beauties on the inside and I’ll explain more as we go. Enjoy!!! (above image via)

Let’s start in the entryway, above and below we have two different entryways to two different homes. The one above is more traditional in look but does combine wood and metal with the majority of the railing being done in wood with metal rungs between all the corner posts. The railing below is also a combination of wood and metal except for this combines chunkier wood beams that have been strung with metal cables to give us the traditional feeling of a staircase with an industrial element to it. (above via, below via)

Here in this Farmhouse kitchen, we can see a lot of our elements coming into play with wood floors used throughout the home complemented by wood beams on the ceiling, all of that set against white walls and ceiling. You have several different light fixtures here, with a wooden chandelier over the breakfast table, an industrial pendant over the sink and a wooden box fixture over the island. At the island are metal barstools in a rubbed bronze finish that are a complement to the faucet at the sink and the pendant fixture. (via)

Here’s a look at another kitchen where we can see the use of subway tile in the kitchen, wicker and metal barstools, a large wooden table all sitting on wood floors. I love the large industrial pendant light fixtures over the table and island. (via)

Tables and chairs are a great way to get the wood and metal combination, here we have a big farmhouse table surrounded by metal chairs, again all sitting on a wood floor. Simple and timeless. (via)

Here we get a look at the light color scheme that’s so prevalent in Modern Farmhouse and again with tile on the floors, this time set in a herringbone pattern, and industrial lighting. (via)

In this master bedroom, we can see how natural wood is used to create an interesting ceiling treatment. There are a lot of layers and textures going on on this bed and bedrooms are always a great place to add some sparkle such as the metal chandelier with crystals. (via)

This bathroom is a wonderful example of using tile, the color white, industrial lighting over the mirrors and natural stone countertops. It all comes together to create a beautiful bath. (via)

Here’s another great bathroom, again great tile, stone countertops, lighting, light colors and this time we have a popular barn door treatment covering the toilet area, the perfect spot for a full-length mirror. (via)

I hope this gives you some ideas of things you can do in your home, you don’t have to live in a farmhouse to carry out any of these ideas. Check back later this morning as we focus on a specific interior feature of the Modern Farmhouse. 

Words are my own.
