What makes it modern farmhouse?

It's a modern with traditional mix which merges contemporary amenities and essentials (solid foundation, craftsmanship, open floorplan) with vintage classics (beamed ceilings, old style windows, barn doors).

Stillwater Architecture identifies five key elements of modern farmhouse style and describe it as not just a look, but a vibe:

"It’s easy and casual, nothing overdone or excessive. Farmhouse style homes make wonderful and beautiful vacation homes. They combine the best of modern and old fashioned looks, and they work in all kinds of locations. Old farmhouses are easy to remodel for modern living, and farmhouse style homes can easily be built from the ground up, too. While there is no definitive guide as to what makes a house, farmhouse style, there are five distinct elements of the farmhouse design."

The 5 Elements?
Oversized Openings
Light Colored Walls (like whitewashed wood)
Natural Woodwork and Floors
Big Open Kitchens (and open shelving)
Covered Porches

In addition, here is a list of more notable
design details often found in modern farmhouse
style interiors:

Patina, baby!
(Think weathered wood, tarnished metals,
peely paint, and aged everything.)

Matte finishes rather than shiny.

Distressed Everything.

Textures Over Patterns.

Barn lighting.

Farm table/Harvest tables.

Deep cushy sofas to fall asleep on.

Fleamarket Treasures and vintage yum.

Modern Accessories and art.

Simple and Effortless decor plans.

    1. you're so right, and that's why I think modern farmhouse is much more than a trend--it has timeless appeal so it's a sensible approach when you are going for informal and live-able. xox
