If there's one overarching decor trend with serious staying power right now, it's the modern farmhouse look. And thanks to inspiration sources like Pinterest and Instagram we have no shortage of beautiful homes to to inspire our own at-home aesthetic.

The modern farmhouse look isn't about making your living room look as much like a barn as possible. Rather, we like to think of it as infusing your home's style with rustic and vintage touches.

Ahead, we found 15 pieces you can add to your house to channel that modern farmhouse look without going over the top.

    Found Wood Ladder

     Pottery Barn

    As both a convenient storage spot for blankets and a rustic design element, we love the look of a wooden ladder leaned against a wall that could use a little bit of decoration.

    Expandable Farmhouse Dining Table

    One of the essential elements of the modern farmhouse home is the rustic wood dining table. For seating we would suggest either benches that echo the style (with a sheepskin throw or two for comfort) or industrial-style metal chairs. Adorn your table with a linen runner and glass hurricanes filled with candles.

    We love the way that The Painted Porch has put this coal scuttle to use as a pretty and practical way to store various accessories in your guest bathroom—like hand towels and soap and perhaps a sachet of lavender.

    White enamelware like this will look stylish and sophisticated in any home. The look is rustic enough, though, to perfectly complement a modern farmhouse kitchen.

    Perhaps you live in an urban high-rise apartment or a pretty suburb that feels miles away from rural country. You can bring some of that pastoral beauty indoors with one of Anthropologie's unique wall art pieces.

    To really bring the farmhouse feeling to life in your home, switch out your door for a sliding panel door like this one from Rustica Hardware. It has the look of a barn door with polished industrial details that maintain a modern look.

    This pretty painted mailbox may not be quite practical enough for literal use outside your home, but it can make a great place to stash your mail inside, or any other knick-knacks you might want to keep out of sight.

    Modern Quilting

    Serena & Lily 

    Quilts have been a signature of country homes (and a part of history) for centuries. Quilts can feel dated in the wrong design, but Serena & Lily's updated colors and patterns aren't anything like your grandmother's hand-me-downs. (But we have tips for keeping those in good condition if you do have vintage quilts!)

    Cambria quilts, $248 - $358, Serena & Lily

    A washed wood bed frame will give your bedroom a warm and inviting country feel. We recommend layering up your bed with quilts and printed sheets in washed out florals and stripes.
