These days, people have been working to achieve a trend toward a modern farmhouse look in their home, whether they’ve renovated an actual farmhouse or are simply moving their own décor and style to that direction. At Bretz Interiors serving the greater Denver area, we keep our finger on the pulse of trends so we can help our customers achieve them too. Read on for some ideas about how you can add a farmhouse-modern look to your home!
About the Look
This style is all about combining the look of the old days with a more modern aesthetic. You’ll find industrial lighting over apron sinks and glossy finishes throughout a space. The overall look is inviting and relaxing, with wood accents, neutral colors, and a casual feel. This isn’t the same as the “country” look that was popular years ago; this look is intentionally rich in character and as far from kitsch as it can get.
Window Treatments in a Farmhouse-Modern Home
If you’re looking to achieve this look and feel for your home, consider treatments that add wood accents, natural light, and no-frills charm. For example:
- Nature-based feel. This look doesn’t lend to metal or frilly patterns. Instead, it features nature-inspired items like Provenance® Woven Wood Shades, which are made with natural fibers like woven reeds, grasses, and bamboo. These shades complement other natural materials throughout the home, and they naturally diffuse sunlight beautifully.
- Classic, streamlined look. Cellular roller shades bring a clean look while also adding benefits like energy efficiency, light and privacy control, and easygoing charm. Sonnette® Cellular Roller Shades are available in a range of colors, including warm neutrals and whites, and they pair well with side panels or drapery for a complete, layered look that brings visual interest to the window.
- Timeless elegance. Roman Shades have long been popular because they blend with numerous décor styles while adding classic style to a space. Vignette® Modern Roman Shades come in different fold styles and opacities to meet any need. They are also available in numerous fabrics as well as natural weaves, to blend seamlessly with the farmhouse-modern aesthetic.
- Wood accents. The neutral color palette of the modern-farmhouse look lends itself to the pop that wood blinds bring, which can create a new focal point for a room. Parkland® Wood Blinds are a great option, with selections in various paints and stains, as well as two slat sizes.
- Contemporary feel. Sheer shadings can up the “modern” away from the “farmhouse.” Silhouette® Window Shadings bring an airy feel to the window and incorporate clean lines in their vanes, which diffuse and soften harsh sunlight. Plus, you can find them in a variety of fabrics to enhance your décor.
