Design Board: Modern Farmhouse

Design Board: Modern Farmhouse

Modern farmhouse style is, in a lot of ways, the best of several trending design styles.  Modern farmhouse aesthetic is all about natural hues, wood accents and clean lines to create a rustic, industrial look that radiates country charm. We've gone ahead and come up with a design board for this Instagram style favorite- Modern Farmhouse.

To me, you cannot have modern farmhouse without a big 'ole white sink. Farmhouse aka apron front sinks are perfect for farmhouse styled kitchens. But when it comes to bathrooms, I just can't get into them. They will forever be "kitchen-y" to me. Our favorite farmhouse styled bathroom sinks, in no particular order are: (click on each image to see more about each product)
Moving on to the faucet, I like when the faucet has a vintage, old-timey feel to it. You know what I mean, the touch of porcelain in the handle somewhere, or better yet, a cross handle. Our favorite farmhouse style bathroom faucets, in a variety of installation types:

If you're shopping for sinks and faucet, it's more than likely that you already have your vanity picked out.  Which is the main deciding factor for me when it comes to the finishing details like paint, countertop, backsplash, tile, lighting, rugs and hardware. But if you haven't, here are a couple vanities that fit in with a modern, rustic farmhouse appeal.

Next, let's talk about lighting. Bathroom lighting is an important design element that illuminates your tasks, while complimenting the style of the room. Adequate lighting is crucial for bathroom vanity areas. Generally speaking, the rule of thumb is your overhead vanity light shouldn't extended wider than the mirror. Here are some of my favorite modern farmhouse lights.

 Next, we will have to talk about hardware!  I mean, after all it is the jewelry of your cabinetry.  I happen to be a fan of Top Knobs, for a few reasons: #1 we can get their products within a days time, here in New York. Which is amazing. #2 their prices for knobs are generally in the $4 ball park, and the handles are generally in the $8 ball park which is quite affordable. #3 their quality is great, their service is great, and they have a great warranty LIFETIME!

The final step I would say, would be to finish of the look with a nice floor covering, aka rug.  Now obviously, this would all depend on the colors and feel of the room, but the modern farmhouse style tends to favor naturals & neutrals. Here are some of my personal favorites:
