The farmhouse style of décor is cozy, warm, and inviting. Contemporary interior design can be cool, clinical, and minimal. However, what if you combine them? You may prefer the simplicity and cleanliness of a modern style but wish to incorporate rustic elements to create an inviting atmosphere.

The term “modern farmhouse” refers to a hybrid style that incorporates contemporary color palettes, shapes, and materials with the rustic warmth of untreated wood, hand-hammered metal, or clay pots. It has an infinite number of interpretations, with varying degrees of integration between modern cool and farmhouse nostalgia.

The following examples of modern farmhouses demonstrate how adaptable and beautiful this unexpected combination can be.

Cool White Modern Bathroom With Farmhouse Bench

On the more minimal end of the spectrum is this bathroom by Min Day Architects, via Houzz. With the addition of a rough-hewn, natural wood farmhouse bench, a clean white and gray bathroom transforms into a spa-like haven. Benjamin Moore’s Seapearl is used on the walls in this bathroom.

White Marble Contemporary Bathroom With Farmhouse Sink

Modern Farmhouse Powder Room

Several farmhouse touches are incorporated into a modern color scheme in this lovely powder room by Sypsie Designs.

Tiny Bathroom in Modern Farmhouse Style

Bienal Vanity Bathroom

This tiny bathroom by Envi Interior Design Studio, via Houzz, is more farmhouse than modern, but it still qualifies as a modern farmhouse. A neutral-colored reflective tile and a large frameless mirror make the small space appear larger. The exposed lightbulbs, oversized farmhouse sink, and stone floating vanity give the bathroom a retro, almost industrial feel. The combination of red, blue, and neutral tones gives it life and joy.

Modern Farmhouse Bathroom With Rustic Stool and Wicker Baskets

This bathroom, photographed by Hannah Blackmore, would feel a little empty and cold without the rustic bench and wicker baskets. (Okay, the puppy also helps!) Luxurious marble contrasts with simple wicker, and modern square shapes are offset by a rounded wood stool.

Bathroom With Farmhouse Vanity and Modern Shower

The farmhouse and modern areas are placed side by side in this space, which can be found on Roomble, and are tied together with a beautiful black and white mosaic tile and black retro-style hardware.

Colorful and Minimal Modern Farmhouse Powder Room

Modern Farmhouse Bathroom With a Touch of Industrial

DIY Modern Farmhouse Bathroom

If you prefer the retro quaintness of the farmhouse style over the cool shades and straight shapes of the modern style, this example from Bless’er House is for you.

Modern Farmhouse Bathroom With Steel-Framed Shower

Bienal Vanity Bathroom

Yes, a farmhouse bathroom can still look ultra-modern if modern and farmhouse elements are balanced properly.

Feminine Modern Farmhouse Bathroom

Modern Farmhouse Bathroom With Barn Door-Style Mirror

Bienal Vanity Bathroom

The barn door is making a comeback in modern design, and this bathroom uses it in an unusual way: it’s attached to a full-length mirror instead of a door. Irwin Builds’ design incorporates reclaimed wood and a neutral color scheme for a modern/rustic look. The mirror also conceals additional storage space.

Modern Farmhouse Kids’ Bathroom

Bienal Vanity Bathroom

The modern farmhouse look isn’t just for adults: This Houzz design by Brandi Hines demonstrates that children’s bathrooms can be just as fun and beautiful as adults’ bathrooms. The large farmhouse sink with two faucets takes up less room than a double vanity, and the exposed plumbing adds to the rustic look.

Along with the unusual tub shape, Chango & Co.’s modern farmhouse bathroom features rustic touches like unpolished wood and hand-woven cotton. White is still the dominant color, as it is in most modern farmhouse designs, but it is enlivened by neutral wood tones and green accents.
