Dare we say that modern farmhouse is the new Scandinavian? While the thought of leaving behind the cool, clean minimalism of the latter, once in awhile, a little change could do some well. And as most design-lovers are trading their whitewashed spaces in for the bold and the bright of the nearly-ubiquitous maximalist movement
, there is an equally plentiful insurgence of decorators who are skewing in the opposite direction. For all the streamlined characteristics and abundant mix of prints and patterns of maximalism, the opposing aesthetic—which has come to be defined as modern farmhouse—is just as rustic and neutrally-charged.
Don't be fooled: It's anything but snoozy. That being said, for as much as we love the aesthetic, we can recognize that it may be difficult to replicate in an urban dwelling—read: small-spaces. Thinking outside of the spanning exteriors, grand dining rooms, and spacious entryways, we're looking to the ways in which we can recreate the look within our existing homes. Taking pointers and inspiration from the wide array of homes we've seen, which share the aforementioned aesthetic, ahead are a few helpful ways you can recreate the look in your own space. Farmhouses not required.
