Endlessly customizable, the modern farmhouse style works in any home- from new built construction to century homes in need of renovation. Combining warm & cozy textures with industrial and vintage-inspired elements is a sure way to enjoy this trend. In the kitchen above, the owners combined dramatic dark cabinetry and window casings with white shiplap walls. The sleek, slightly marbled countertops tie together both tones, while gold accents and warm wood shelves and stools keep this space feeling warm and luxurious.

This kitchen interprets the modern farmhouse style in a completely different way- although the elements of texture, natural wood and industrial elements are all still present. Using a tone-on-tone approach, this kitchen's colour palette builds warmth and depth without straying from grey, white and wood. The result is a soothing and warm space which seems serene even though there are many design elements in the same space.

This cozy farmhouse kitchen is playful and inviting- using a predominantly white colour scheme lets the owners really make their mark with accessories. This kitchen is an excellent example of the wisdom of choosing neutral materials in different textures for the foundations of a kitchen. White subway tile, white countertops and white cabinets are all brought to life with fun copper & pink accessories, while the sink and door hardware are a more classic nickel finish. This way the owners can switch up the look & feel of their kitchen seasonally!

This last farmhouse kitchen is a more restrained take on this classic style. The cabinets are a sophisticated slate colour, while glass shelving allows their beautiful dishes to be on display. This kitchen uses only cool tones- nickel hardware, black industrial-style lights and cool-toned wood floors make this space feel gender neutral and refined.
