How To Get That Modern Farmhouse Look

  I love a mix of traditional, modern, rustic and farmhouse and that is exactly what MODERN FARMHOUSE is all about.  This is not your grandma's farmhouse and it is not country farmhouse.  It is adding a modern twist to all your farmhouse decor.

 I recently found a fabulous woven table runner (at my favorite consignment shop) that had to come home with me.  It reminds me of some of those wonderful crazy quilts that our grandmothers made.  This is the perfect example of how Modern Farmhouse takes inspiration from the past and interprets it for today.

Heavy rustic yarn woven together to create a striking "crazy quilt" pattern.  The extra wide width creates a dramatic base for my tablesetting.

  We love our farmhouse table and chairs.  They are a set that I've had for years and use them everyday.  It's where we love to gather with family most of the time.  I've added woven placemats, a tin lantern and simple finials as my centerpiece.  The gold based glasses add a touch of modern glitz just for fun.

Our lantern chandelier is often used in farmhouse decor.  It is also used in many modern rooms too.  Such a versatile piece.    

Our farmhouse table has a trestle base with twisted legs and I love the way the ladderback chairs have a graceful cut out.  The woven seats are also very typical of a lot of farmhouse chairs.

Just add a few of your favorite "farmhouse" accessories into the mix and enjoy.
Modern Farmhouse seems to be the best of both worlds, marrying the past and present together. 

To stay up to date on all the makeovers taking place at our new home, I would love to have you follow me.  You don't want to miss any of our "Hits & Misses".

  3. Marty this is a good look for almost any farmhouse style. Modern or rustic. Very pretty.

  4. Great example of modern farmhouse! Your table and chair set fit right in too! I like the modern and rustic mix!

  5. LOVE that runner, and you're so right about looking like a modern take on a quilt. Every element works together to bring regular farmhouse up a notch. Those goblets are so wonderful, you can see a geometric design from the inside.
