The Challenge: Modern Farmhouse Interior Design

A recent Decorilla client was excited to move into her new house that offered a blank canvas for interior design. What she wanted now were chic but functional design ideas for a living room, dining area, and home office. Having coastal, rustic, and modern farmhouse-style interiors in mind, the client felt ready to begin the space transformation. Consequently, she asked for a designer proficient in those styles who could also:

  • Stylishly incorporate a TV into the living room interior design
  • Consider replacing light fixtures with ones oozing more distinctive character
  • Assemble an elegant and comfortable dining zone inside a living room
  • Set up an inspiring and functional modern farmhouse-style home office

Modern Country House Inspiration

The contemporary farmhouse aesthetic has become an all-American style of choice in recent years. The reasons were evident in the client’s modern country house inspiration gallery. From sleek, minimalist French country houses to cozy, cabin-like retreats, it displayed warm ambiances filled with chic blends of various elements. Accordingly, the gallery provided a valuable source of inspiration for numerous ways the modern farmhouse interior design can be implemented in her home. 

Modern Farmhouse Style Ideas & Moodboard

By completing the design questionnaire, the client provided vital information about her modern farmhouse ideas and lifestyle to the Decorilla team. Armed with this knowledge, the team presented two experienced designers, highly adept in the desired styles. Each designer put their spin on the client’s vision, presented as an initial concept moodboard.

The client was now faced with the daunting task of choosing between two equally impressive moodboards. Nevertheless, after careful consideration, Ryley B.’s solution was deemed the ideal choice for the client’s specific needs.

Ryley’s moodboard was a stylish blend of classic provincial French design intermixed with American contemporary farmhouse and urban rustic-industrial coolness. This successful fusion of elegance and ruggedness became even more prominent on the background of a trendy neutral color scheme accentuated by warm pastel hues. At the same time, streamlined industrial cabinets created an attractive contrast to premium cushy seating providing the ultimate comfort for luxurious living.

The spacious and inviting living area boasts a charming pastoral flair. A neutral base, the staple of modern farmhouse interior design, is enriched with touches of light amber and azure accents. At the same time, black metal elements accentuate the layout with a dash of an edgy industrial vibe. The soft sage wooden paneling elegantly elevates the design, guiding the eye toward a chic beaded chandelier.

In a characteristic modern farmhouse style, the generous living room layout boasts plenty of hosting-friendly, comfortable seating. The light grey sofa and chair and a half are complemented by two blue accent armchairs, creating a multi-layered atmosphere that adds to the overall allure. Lavishly cushioned seating is juxtaposed to sharp metal edges and rustic wooden textures of the coffee table, mirror, and media cabinet, conveying attractive visual dynamics as a result.

The modern country house design gets an even more intriguing twist in the dining room with a sleek and stylish Scandinavian-inspired dining set. Its light wood texture and elegant grey upholstery are perfectly complemented by an eclectic rug, creating a scene that oozes soft tactility. In the background, a darker display cabinet duo adds an unexpected edge with a modern rustic look. Meanwhile, a framed wall art set dominates the scene, defining its polished and sophisticated character.

The contemporary farmhouse home office puts several interesting assets on display. Its stylish setup oozes a subtle, earthy tonality that follows the house’s overall rustic charm without compromising modern functionality. Ideally placed next to an ample window, the workspace makes the most out of natural light, promoting healthy focus in a serene and classic ambiance.

A solid yet sleek wooden desk’s silhouette makes an elegant foundation for a highly functional layout. The room’s centerpiece is skillfully paired with a contemporary desk chair and a mid-century modern armchair, all grounded by a washed-out antique rug. Behind the desk rises a practical set of built-in white bookshelves. Adorned by charming baskets, repurposed ladders, and rustic decor, it becomes a stunning visual feature, simultaneously expressing a distinctive character of a farmhouse-style interior.
