With the growing trend towards urbanization, the modern farmhouse style is gaining more and more importance in design. In the 60s of the last century, when the first call “back to nature” sounded from the trendsetters, decorators again turned their attention to the decoration of rural houses, stunningly harmonious in their traditional charm. So little by little, a separate style was formed, called – farmhouse. Moreover, the designers were able to define its characteristic features clearly:

  • open, welcoming, and friendly spaces;
  • a minimum of blank partitions for zoning;
  • the maximum possible volumes of light and air;
  • the dominance of natural materials and textures;
  • many decorative elements reflecting the individuality of the owner.

As the farmhouse became more and more reliable on the list of interior styles, cottage owners have paid more attention to interior design for their home. Today, the farmhouse style has become a full-fledged direction in design and has received all the rights to regular upgrades. That is why we present to your attention the most relevant trends that will allow you to create a cozy and not devoid of impeccable taste atmosphere in your corner of paradise.

We do not doubt that you can at least approximately describe how you see a house in the village. And if your ideas feature simple lines, linen and cotton, white and beige, floral prints, and many charming trinkets, then you are on the right track. However, today, when city dwellers are increasingly striving for the peace and serenity of small villages, designers are trying to bring a little more grace and precise forms to some of the farmhouse decoration’s laziness and relaxation. However, first things first: let’s talk about the five most promising trends in the modern farmhouse style.

The wood in all its forms

Designers propose to consider wood not only as a building material but also as a decorative material. When decorating a cottage, pay attention to wooden elements, which in 2021 will surely be in the spotlight:

  • Wooden ceiling beams. This solution provides the interior with volume and texture, and at the same time, does not overload it at all. You can choose elements made of unpainted, deliberately roughly carved wood, or choose contrasting beams painted with dark paint – the effect will please you anyway.
  • Grooved boards. Smooth and close-fitting wooden elements perfectly emphasize the serene romance inherent in authentic rural interiors.
  • Wooden furniture – perhaps handmade. If you have long felt the urge to work with wood – it’s time to give it a try. And don’t be afraid that it will turn out imperfect: slight negligence has become synonymous with charming authenticity. If the desire to pick up the instrument does not appear, it is worth looking for tables with a rough base of logs, wooden benches and stools, and sideboards and dressers of the same plan. However, a pallet bed or a pallet coffee table is still relatively easy for DIY.
  • The wood decor is something that cannot be too much. You can take a closer look at wood frames, bowls, and candlesticks and even opt for something cute and abstract – the wood texture will provide the aesthetic you want.

From exquisite simplicity to sophisticated charm

A modern farmhouse today does not at all imply excessive laconicism and lack of harmony. Moreover, in 2021, designers propose to set a course for more graceful and elegant solutions to combine a calm eco-friendly environment and contemporary sophistication. It is proposed to achieve the desired balance using the following solutions:

  • smooth walls painted in light monochrome;
  • the use of soft and shiny textures such as metal and glass;
  • elegant, graceful shapes such as rattan furniture and minimalist lamps;
  • trendy floor decor, which has become an indispensable attribute of stylish modern apartments.

Combination of modern and rustic styles

It may seem that in this case, we are talking about the same ideas and solutions as in the description of the previous trend, but this is not entirely true. Speaking about the current mix of modern trends and relatively stable traditions of decorating village houses, we do not mean introducing new interior elements – but the interpretation of the old ones. When updating the décor, try the following techniques:

  • perfectly smooth floors instead of ordinary board floors;
  • replacing textiles with a floral print with a plain one with lace and embroidery in color;
  • renovation of furniture with the effect of aging, giving it a flawless, new look;
  • actual paintings and posters on the walls;
  • fireplaces of modern design instead of brick in retro style.

Botany, botany, and botany again

In the interior of a farmhouse, you can hardly do without plants. Prints on curtains and posters on the walls, of course, will not be enough – and why limit yourself? Let as much of life as possible into your home!

Climbing and flowering houseplants, culinary greens in charming pots, freshly cut garden roses and hydrangeas – this is not a complete list of friends for your interior from the world of botany. Compositions of dried plants and flowers today are experiencing another wave of popularity. However, avoid complicated and exotic options: foraged cotton and a couple of bouquets of lavender or heather will be enough.

Games with textures

Traditionally, it is believed that a rustic interior presupposes exceptionally calm, soft, and matte surfaces. Of course, the magic of rough planks, linen, cotton, and stone is irresistible, but why not take a fresh look at decorating?

In this regard, 2021 promises to be a time of surprises and changes. So, American designers have already suggested polishing and varnishing wooden ceilings! Thus, it is possible to achieve improved light transmission in space, visually increase the room’s volume, and provide more efficient heat retention.

We have already mentioned Behr as a trendsetter of the interior palette. Do not think that they have bypassed farmhouses: especially for them, the brand’s colorists have developed a whole line of colors. If painting the outside of the house was part of your plans in 2021, you should pay attention to the shades that have already been recognized as the most relevant in the coming season.

  • Wishful Green. A surprisingly light and fresh shade with a calm mood that will add a mysterious charm to your home.
  • Barnwood Gray. A simple and calm gray version without unnecessary pressure and excessive gloom will provide a serene and balanced house image.
  • Cellini Gold. Bright and warm shade, but at the same time entirely not disturbing the eye. It creates the impression that your home is bathed in sunlight.
  • Smoky White. A soft and peaceful tone will give your home a truly welcoming look.
  • Dayflower. A rich, but not excessive, dark blue will favorably emphasize the harmony of a residential building’s lines and proportions.
  • Maple Glaze. A very pleasant, one might say, an appetizing light brown tone that will add discreet elegance.
  • Jojoba. A cool gray color with persistent greenish notes will make it easy to fit your farmhouse into the surrounding landscape.
  • Almond Wisp. A delightful and warm beige shade visually smooths out imbalances and creates a mesmerizing contrast with the surrounding greenery.
  • Nocturne Blue. A deep and mysterious color is a godsend for the trendy elaboration of architectural elements of a house.

Great news: all of these colors are perfectly combined with each other, and therefore you can safely use them to paint doors, window frames, terraces, columns, and porches, creating individual and harmonious combinations.

In a cottage far from the city, the owners’ lives, willy-nilly, centers around the kitchen. And the point here is not at all a passion for cooking: in unity with nature, a natural craving for the hearth awakens, and if you also have your own garden or vegetable garden, then you will be happy to spend most of your time here, processing vegetables, fruits, berries, and herbs.

That is why designers try to make the kitchen as spacious as possible and often combine it with the living room, opening up maximum opportunities to communicate with friends and family and practice your favorite hobbies. The more pleasant its design promises to be in 2021 since designers offer exciting options:

  • Wooden total look. The kitchen, in which everything is made of wood, looks incredibly cozy and fabulous in its own way.
  • Sea style. Dark blue cabinets, brass handles, white countertops, and cast iron lamps – the spirit of adventure is with you, even if the sea is more than a thousand miles away.
  • Full open space. There are never too many open cabinets and shelves in the farmhouse kitchen – just remember to arrange accessories and dishes beautifully in them.
  • A bit of minimalism. Solid facades, laconic white color, symmetrical kitchen island are a godsend for those who appreciate perfect order.
  • Valuable retro. If you have vintage chairs or lamps in your attic, it’s time to put them into action. If not, it’s okay: you will find something similar in stores.

According to the designers, the 2021 farmhouse style is still distinctive, hospitable, and charming in the simplicity of its interior lines and facades. However, new trends will add a little more gloss and fashionable elegance to it – to create a living space that is equally comfortable for fans of village life and adherents of city bustle.
