Modern farmhouses transcend other trending designs because it is just so easy to accomplish. Incorporate these four elements into your home for the ultimate modern farmhouse design aesthetic. 

Wide-Planked Hardwoods 

White oak hardwoods are one of the most popular in a modern farmhouse design. Its light grain makes spaces look bigger and brighter while still concealing crumbs and pet hair.

White or Light Walls

Interior designers recommend Benjamin Moore Super White, White Dove, or Chantilly Lace and Farrow & Ball Ammonite for the perfect crisp and bright white walls.

Natural Elements 

Jute rugs, reclaimed wood furniture, and other naturally textured elements work together with ease in a modern farmhouse.

Defining Accents

Wrought iron hardware and antique-inspired light fixtures will create contrast against the light elements for design definition.
