“Dip your brush into soft whites, grays, muted blues and light browns.”
The Superior Modern Farmhouse style encompasses the sentimental side of rustic. This collection is inspired by cotton and wood, hand-me-down treasures and well-worn galvanized steel.
During those times, wood flooring was commonplace in most rural homes. Wood flooring that was well worn, sometimes pitted and scraped refinished and repaired.
Today, distressed hardwood such as hand scraped or wire brushed hardwood; reclaimed flooring and post beams can help homeowners achieve that classic farmhouse look.
Inspired by natural, re-purposed and vintage are three big elements found in modern farmhouse decorating.
Think re-purposed, galvanized farm supplies like feeder troughs, watering pails and wire baskets, artfully rusted and chippy scales and vintage signage.
Homeowners looking to take their love of modern farmhouse beyond simple surface renovations can go one step beyond and paint their furniture.
Shiplap furniture & cabinetry, chunkier mouldings and more pronounced trim can all add that farmhouse style to not only your walls but your furniture and cabinetry. Our new Shiplap white provides the perfect backdrop for artwork, fabric, and furnishings to take the lead.
Think of that favorite pair of jeans once was new and now worn faded and oh so comfortable.
Cottons in different weights, grain sack material, ticking stripes and burlap. These fabrics would have been easy to obtain, whether they were originally intended to be sewn into curtains and cushions, etc. or if they were re-purposed. Of course that isn’t all, but it’s certainly the basis for the textiles in this style. The goal is for your furniture to look like it has a story just like your favorite old pair of jeans; comfortably worn, handmade or inherited.
“Focus on finding beauty in the unexpected.”
