Where did Modern Farmhouse come from? In my opinion, Ms. Farmhouse started dating Mr. Minimalism. They got married, had a baby hence Modern Farmhouse was born. It has the comfort, coziness & charm of farmhouse but the elevated refinement, restraint, & modern twist of minimalism that reflects current times. We all know farming has been around since the dawn of man, so farming as well as its style has always been in our psyche. People who have never been on a farm have fallen in love with this design style.
Some driving forces who have cultivated this style have been Chip & Joanna Gaines of HGTV's Fixer Upper as well as Syd & Shea McGee of McGee & Co. Both have taken this style to the masses. Will it have longevity? Only time will tell but if your heart just pitter-patters every time, you see Modern Farmhouse, it just might be the style to help you live & be your true authentic self.
Modern Farmhouse is characterized by clean lines (traits from Minimalism), neutral color palettes, open floorplans & A-Frame Architecture. A style that lives by "I may be refined but you don't have be afraid getting comfortable". It also leans towards the use of lighter woods & black accents.
Black Accent are introduced in varies ways like, furniture pieces, light fixtures, hardware, & accessories.
