Modern Farmhouse Style Enhanced with Timber Mouldings

Ready to elevate your home with rustic elegance and contemporary flair? Our latest blog is your ultimate guide to mastering the timeless allure of modern farmhouse interior style.

27th April 2024

Are you looking to bring a touch of modern farmhouse style into your next project? This popular interior design trend combines traditional farmhouse elements with contemporary aesthetics, resulting in a look that is both timeless and sophisticated.

Timber mouldings are an excellent way to achieve the perfect blend of rustic charm and modern elegance. They can be used to frame windows and doors, add depth with skirting and architraves, or highlight features like shiplap walls. By incorporating timber mouldings, you can enhance the rustic elements of your home, adding depth, texture, and architectural interest.

The Main Elements of a Modern Farmhouse Interior

Materials: The modern farmhouse style seamlessly merges modern and vintage elements. Incorporate natural textures and materials like solid wood, leather, brick, and metals such as iron and steel. Vintage-inspired timber mouldings, like traditional skirting boards, architraves, and shiplap panelling can add a touch of vintage charm to your space.

Colours: Embrace neutral colours like beige, grey, and white to create a calm and serene atmosphere. Offset these neutrals with earthy tones such as blues, greens, yellows, and dark orange.

Furnishings: Blend comfortable rustic furniture with cozy modern styles. Start with a classic contemporary sofa in neutral tones and add antique wood furniture pieces like coffee tables or desks for a perfect balance between old and new.

Décor: Opt for handmade and organic items such as woven baskets, indoor plants, and antique ceramics to achieve a natural and sustainable farmhouse aesthetic. These elements add texture and warmth to your home while embracing a lived-in and welcoming look.

How to Create Your Modern Farmhouse Interior

  • Fuse styles and periods: Mix modern and vintage elements within each room to create a home with personality. Don’t be afraid to combine new and old pieces.
  • Exercise restraint: Strike a balance between minimalism and adding too many elements. Consider how each addition will enhance the space before incorporating it.
  • Mix metals: Create a cosy and warm atmosphere by mixing different metals throughout your home. Use various types of tapware, light fittings, furniture, and décor items.
  • Focus on architectural details: Display heritage architectural details such as exposed beams, decorative mouldings, and wooden floors to add character and charm to your home.
  • Colours: Start with a neutral palette and add in nature-inspired accents using earthy browns, sea blues, forest greens, and straw gold. Layer in natural materials such as salvaged wood, textured linen, and timber furniture.

Incorporating Decorative Timber Mouldings in Your Modern Farmhouse

Timber mouldings can play a key role in achieving a modern farmhouse aesthetic. Here are a few practical ways to incorporate them into your space:

Statement Ceiling

Add exposed timber beams or decorative ceiling mouldings to draw the eye upward and create a focal point in the room.

Shiplap Walls

Install shiplap cladding to add texture and visual interest to a feature wall. Paint the shiplap in crisp white or muted neutral tones to create a subtle backdrop for furniture and decor. Keep the furnishings simple and in a neutral colour scheme to modernize the look.

Window and Door Architrave

Choose window and door trims that frame the views and add architectural detail to your space. Consider a distressed finish for a rustic look or a clean, modern profile for a contemporary twist.
