Just a Little Bit Country: 9 Modern Farmhouses to Swoon Over

Modern farmhouse has become a wildly popular design aesthetic, thanks in no small part to the tireless evangelism from renovation gurus Joanna and Chip Gaines. It’s their thing! New homes and renovated spaces alike now combine clean, modern spaces with comfortable touches of rustic appeal.

These days, large swaths of the nation have been overtaken with shiplap. But besides that ubiquitous design touch, modern farmhouse also incorporates crisp pops of color against a calming white or gray background, wide-plank floors, and upcycled rustic objects. The result? Highly functional and cozy spaces with style to spare.

But unless you’re lucky enough to live in Central Texas—where the Gaineses live and do most of their work—you’ll have to settle for another builder’s interpretation of the modern farmhouse. The great news is that there are plenty of examples on the market to choose from.
