Happy Friday! As promised last week, I’m bring you another porch design I’m calling Modern Farmhouse. Modern farmhouse combines the charm of the traditional farmhouse aesthetic with the sleek lines of more contemporary style. I also refer to this style as refined farmhouse because this design is more chic than farmhouse styles of the past. The key to success is paying attention to the contrasts between old and new and rustic and sleek. Pair a rustic wood dining table with simple chairs that have clean, modern lines. Upholster a contemporary armchair in a plaid or check fabric. It’s all about the balance!
I couldn’t help adding the cast resin piggy from Ballard Designs– I am from Smithfield! Enjoy the long weekend!
