Modern Farmhouse Living Room Decor Ideas

Fear not, you don’t have to live in the country to be inspired by these farmhouse living room ideas. City dwellers, these are for you too, because we all know farmhouse and country style, isn’t reserved for those who live surrounded by fields and cattle. While yes, it helps if you have exposed beams, rustic floorboards and an open fire, but even if you haven’t been blessed with these features in your city apartment, there are plenty of ways to bring this ever-popular style into your home. Lets check out some modern farmhouse living room style and tips below.

Add In Contrast With Darker Accents

To give all those neutral colors a bit of grounding if you are after a more modern look, bring in some darker hues. Some of the black furniture and decor in this living room give it a more elegant, sophisticated feel without totally canceling out that cozy inviting feel you always want with farmhouse interiors.

Decorating Your Walls

Another great way to add in either more farmhouse or more modern style is to your walls. I love incorporating shelving on our walls for a unique, layered look. Try layering it with both modern and farmhouse decor like photo frames, vintage books.


If your home is already finished and your flooring doesn’t lean farmhouse or modern you can always add in a large rug to emphasize your style. Geometric rugs are more modern, while the internet is overflowing with inexpensive recreations of traditional rug designs. Either would work in a modern farmhouse.

Pile Up The Textures

As with any limited color scheme, you need to add in that interest with plenty of textures. So pile up the cushions and layer your rugs to create warmth and comfort. We love how this living room feels so inviting and yet elegant at the same – the furniture is very traditional and almost stately, but it’s given that more relaxed feel thanks to the many throws and cushions.

Bring The Outside In

Every home, regardless of its style, should have something from nature inside, to make it cozy and feel alive. Plants and flowers can be bought just about anywhere these days.. Nothing living where you are, faux is ok too!
