All About Farmhouse

by Guest 2

You’ve probably heard or seen in some way, shape or form about the current darling of the interior design world- farmhouse style.  You may be questioning what the hullabaloo is all about, or whether your home is right for the look. To bring you in the “know”, I will provide a breakdown of the style motivations and a palette of our most popular supporting color selections.  

The, new farmhouse, look is a fresh and modern take on what we would historically consider a classic country style.  What’s changed between then and now is the perceived requirement of an actual farmhouse.  The style, in its modern rendition, is more than just decor and color, its a lifestyle that anyone, anywhere can adopt.  So no cows necessary.


Fueling the farmhouse movement is a revived interest and appreciation in true craftsmanship, and simple, functional design.  The guiding mentality encourages us to connect to our roots, live within our means, and recognize the beauty and value of our heritage.


Upper walls: Greenwhich Village N440-3, Lower walls, trim ceiling: Swiss Coffee 12

The bones of the style remain, with heirloom pieces taking center stage.  The look is transitioned from country to casual with the addition of modern decor elements, contemporary patterns, metallic finishes and soft textures.


Walls: Brook Green N410-2, Mantle, ceiling and trim: ULTRA PURE WHITE®

The overall styling is clean, meaning everything has its place, not spartan.  Spaces should be inviting, with a lived-in, laid back feel.


Walls and trim: Durango Blue S510-6

The color palette consists of sun bleached, pastels, whites and light toned neutrals.  Deep, earth based, colors in browns, reds, greens and blues accent the palette.

We find popular color combinations consisting of tone on tone layering of whites.


Walls, trim and cabinetry: Swiss Coffee 12

Or, neutral walls, of barely there color, supporting brighter accents and stained wood finishes.

There you have new farmhouse- classic and contemporary seamlessly woven together to create a fresh feel that is relaxed, beautifully imperfect, and everyday.

    Hi, I purchased samples of Bakery Box and Frost and they both look bright white to me and nothing like the paper sample. I am looking for a modern farmhouse look and would like a softer white. Any thoughts?

    • Deanna Torrez says:

      Hello Rita,
      Thank you for visiting our Blog!

      Sorry about that! We have the perfect white for you. Please take a look at Swiss Coffee 12 it is not so bright and is a bit more soft. Another suggestions is Antique White 23.

      Hope this helps!

      Colorfully Yours,
