If you’re looking for a home that feels inviting and with a hint of rustic charm, you’ll love the modern farmhouse aesthetic. Inspired by those countryside homes that are a place of cozy refuge, this classic style brings us back to our roots with natural materials, earthy hues, and an emphasis on practicality over polish.
Here are seven fuss-free ways you can incorporate the style into your own home:
1. Faux Fur
Bring in a cozy feel with ultra-soft, faux fur throws and toss cushions perfect for fireside nightcaps. Bonus points for a throw that rolls up into a chic leather handle.

Opt for organically shaped dinnerware for an unfussy, laid-back feel. Try filling a stone pitcher with dried wheat or pampas grass to be placed on the dining table to play up the natural aesthetic.

3. Wood Serveware
Look for pieces with beautiful grain details and use these to serve up your meals and appetizers when hosting family and friends. Keep it casual and show off your wood serveware by leaving it out on display on countertops or open shelving.

4. Flannel Bedding
No farmhouse – or farmhouse-inspired home – is complete without flannel bedding. This warm staple is perfect for the fall and winter season. Modern plaids and soft, neutral hues will work seamlessly with the rest of your farmhouse-inspired decor.

Cozy cable knits feel perfectly at home in a farmhouse. Try soft beiges and rich red hues to up the warmth visually and literally.

6. Nature-Inspired Art
Even if your farmhouse-inspired home happens to be city centre, you’ll want to incorporate some art that connects you to nature. Think mountain ranges, fields, or coastal views that will help your home feel like a calming farmhouse retreat from the chaos of the outside world.

7. Natural Yet Modern Dining Furniture
Add the modern farmhouse style to your dining room through chairs complete with nailhead trim and weathered wood legs, and a long dining table with cerused oak that accentuates the natural grain.
