Modern Farmhouse Design: Mixing Style & Function

When you consider modern farmhouse style, extend your vision beyond the borders of an old Mason jar. The characteristics of this modern design utilize elements that incorporate clean Scandinavian lines with the earthy and organic. To achieve this unique quality, the team at Factor Design Build integrates the sophisticated requirements of today’s homeowner with a combination of rustic comfort and industrial purpose to create a space that’s as relaxing for your family as it is welcoming for your guests.

Modern Farmhouse Style: Classic vs. Trendy

Modern farmhouse design is about blending aspects of minimalism with elements of previous eras’ styling. It’s a space that provides the respite you need from the day’s hectic pace and responsibilities without going too far into the kitschy zone of old signage, gingham fabrics, and heavy antiques.

The appeal of classic styling is that it’s unpretentious yet sleek. The touchstone of farmhouse living is practicality, and that’s the basis of a design that offers longevity. Factor Design Build starts with quality basics and adds pieces that represent who you are; it carries a style that extends beyond simple trends. The key to this acreage of farmhouse attributes is that it’s an evolving rather than fleeting concept. The contemporary design embraces tradition while extending a hand to incorporate the modern.

Classic Style Combines Function and Comfort

  • Durable Materials: Materials such as hemp, linen, and wood symbolize the natural essence of a farmhouse’s durability. Our design team contrasts traditional resources with industrial elements such as repurposed metal fixtures to create appealing resilience.
  • Openness: The organic nature of farmhouse interior design creates a harmonious flow from the outdoors in. We begin with a cream or white base palette that generates a subtle brightness to balance the natural light.
  • Family Space: A large, open space with plenty of room for the family is a guiding principle of modern farmhouse design. Even when your area is limited, Factor Design Build scales down pieces to create the same effect. It’s a comfortable place that’s welcoming and open

Remain True to Natural Sophistication

Whether you want to complete an entire home remodel, or you’re dipping your toes into a more streamlined style one room at a time, our full-service design team follows the basic tenets of modern farmhouse style. We achieve balance throughout by blending natural materials and neutral tones to create an authentic sense of warmth.

In the Kitchen

  • The imperfections of raw wood create a sense of uniqueness and balance that can only be found in nature.
  • Cotton and other natural fibers lend themselves to a non-fussy warmth and hospitality.
  • Factor Design Build incorporates polished or brushed metals with faucets, cabinet hardware, and lighting fixtures ties in the utility of a farm’s machinery.
  • We highlight the space’s natural light with exposed Edison bulbs or create pendant lighting with repurposed glass bottles. They add an authentic feel that’s punctuated with a modern twist.
  • Shiplap is reminiscent of an old barn or stately home’s exterior, which is what makes it such a versatile addition to a modern farmhouse kitchen. We can paint it white, or any other color you want to add texture to the space.

In Living Spaces

  • Natural fibers continue into the living spaces of your home. It’s all about comfort and practicality. Our touches may include decorating with a sophisticated leather couch that’s accentuated with comfortable cotton upholstered accent chairs.
  • We might suggest adding a modern design statement with a plush, high-pile rug that ties the room together. Our purpose is to choose one that draws you to its surface with an eye for relaxation.
  • Factor Design Build’s finishing touches are to accentuate and layer with a throw and accent pillows.

 

Keep It Neutral

  • Far from boring, white provides an understated neutral base on which to build your color spectrum.
  • We build up with neutral shades of tans, grays, or browns.
  • Our team coordinates with our clients to decide on palette choice and how best to accentuate with a bright pop of color to highlight and add interest to the space. Perhaps an heirloom vase or the fresh flowers in it create a vivid detail.

Maintain a Simple and Sophisticated Décor

  • The neutral tone continues with the rest of your décor. We balance the basics with simple patterns. Whether we add a throw or pillows, the theme remains understated and neutral.
  • We continue the raw wood element throughout your home by using repurposed wood on the walls or ceilings to create interest and balance the color palette.
  • Our focus is to allow your personality to shine in this unique space we’ve created by adding family antiques, photographs, and keepsakes.
