Thinking Joanna Gaines and Magnolia Farms? Yep, this is her specialty! The modern farmhouse interior has many characteristics of what we know as traditional farmhouse design. However, this style adds a modern touch which allows the style to become more simplified and clean without losing the character. Shiplap and barn doors are a must. Modern updates like wide plank floors, open concept living, and sleek lighting are a few common ways of adding that modern touch to the traditional farmhouse decorating style. Farmhouse interiors are also known for mixing metals, from golds to matte blacks to nickels. It’s essential to have raw wood elements and greenery that can be found in every room. Color palettes in modern farmhouse interiors are always on the neutral side. When you want to add an extra pop additional color, it’s important to pull from nature— deep navy, sage green, burnt orange.
