10 Finds for Your Modern Farmhouse Home

Farmhouse style living room

@skinner.marshall / Twenty20

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 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 a few pieces you can add to your house to channel that modern farmhouse look without going over the top.

    Expandable Farmhouse Dining Table

    Wooden dining table

    West Elm

    One of the essential elements of the modern farmhouse home is the rustic wood dining table. For seating, we would suggest either some 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.

    The Painted Porch

    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.

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

    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.
