Many people in the decorating and remodeling business have been creating more and more comfortable family living styles. Getting away from the less warm feel of the 1990’s and into the 2000’s these professionals have been taking on a more traditional look for home design. The modern farmhouse design offers the warm charm of a family farm atmosphere by doing a few things. Taking the time to coordinate color schemes and the use of materials can help create not only a more home feel but some exquisite contrasting qualities as well.
- A blend of the old and the contemporary, the modern farmhouse design, a 19th century classic, is in vogue.
- Although somewhat similar, the farmhouse style differs from the traditional country style in its minimalism.
- Simple colors, reclaimed natural wood, ample use of organic materials, and a personal touch are hallmarks of the farmhouse design.
“Whether it’s a response to the cold and minimal interiors of the 90s and early 2000s or an answer to the chaos of the world, people want their spaces to feel cozy.”
