Modern Farmhouse

After what felt like an incredibly long winter, Spring has finally sprung! The birds are singing, the sun is shining, and we are filled with inspiration. Our focus for this post is a fresh and modern farmhouse look.

We are switching gears from our engineered hardwood flooring and instead featuring Oyster from our Latitude Vinyl Prima XL Collection This collection boasts wide planks at 9” and fixed lengths of 6’; bonus, this product is completely waterproof and suitable for radiant heat. It offers a modern wood look that requires minimal maintenance and is the perfect option for busy families.

Oyster is a medium gray toned floor. This makes it an excellent choice to go with almost any type of decor. For our look we are pairing Oyster with a modern farmhouse look with lots of lighter tones and industrial elements. The trick to this Pinterest worthy space is mixing traditional pieces with a modern flare.

We paired Oyster with a neutral off white paint like White Heron by Benjamin Moore and accented it with a deeper gray and navy like their City Shadow & Mysterious paint colours. These can be done on feature walls or pull similar colour in through textiles.

For a dining room/kitchen setting go with off-white cabinetry with a classic marble looking quartz countertop by Caesarstone in Calacatta Maximus. This top is a warm white with taupe veining. Paired with a bold hand painted backsplash tile from Fireclay in the pattern Denver.

Lighting provides a great opportunity to mix in a little modern flair. Pick a dining table or island pendant in a matte black finish to contrast. Choose something that creates interesting shapes like the Vega light from Kuzco.

For furnishing we went with the rustic rectangular Benchwright table from Pottery Barn and paired it with a modern style chair with matte black metal legs. We went with the Alotti by Nuevo. Something with a lower back and curving shape softens all the angles from the lighting and table.

Mix a variety of fabrics with your accents to keep visual interest in colours like navy, terra cotta and ivory. Add in a Fiddle Leaf Fig (artificial is perfectly acceptable if you have a non-existent green thumb like me) and your space in Pinterest ready!
