Looking for modern farmhouse ideas? Take a tour of this modern farmhouse with all of these farmhouse decor ideas. The inspiration starts with this ceiling.
Here’s a look at a beautiful, modern farmhouse that makes great use of simple materials and thoughtful design details.
Welcome to part 2 of the most amazing modern farmhouse tour. When we left off at the end of the post the house was photographing itself and I was no longer speechless.
A typical Monday.
I showed you this bedroom and promised you the rest of the tour and that amazing things were ahead.
And I may or may not have been dancing and painting my nails purple.
Here’s the rest of the house starting with a closer look at that ceiling.
Grab your coffee and let’s go.

Modern Farmhouse Tour With Vintage Finds
There are days when all is right with the world and a ceiling takes your breath away.
This was one of them.
I can’t even.
Do you notice how it kind of sneaks into the picture in every photograph?
I think it’s as all about itself as I am all about it.
I think I spent 10 minutes just staring at the room and the ceiling and the hand-painted furniture and the artwork.
All while humming “Lavender’s blue dilly dilly. Lavender’s green.”
Upstairs, the game room was really an idea factory.
Starting with this cork wall hand-painted with a dartboard.
Easy. Simple. Done.
And that barn wall over the bar.
And that swirling light fixture and those long corded beaded light fixtures.
And this hand made a bar-height table.
And these wood feathers.
And I learned something new around every corner.
Like the fact that you should never underestimate the power of a light fixture pattern on the ceiling.
Look how the light from the beaded chandelier creates another dimension to the room with the flip of a switch.
Back downstairs was a baseball room.
And nothing says baseball like a row of bats.
And corrugated tin headboards.
And a giant baseball sign.
I brought the mini-thistles with me because they were on fall break and there’s a Target in Nashville.
And this is where they stayed.
I came around the corner to see them whispering and planning and decorating their own rooms with easels and jars full of paint and tiny cow pictures.
I had just spent the last two hours doing the same thing with the rest of the house.
It’s just that kind of place.
It makes you sigh.
And visualize and re-decorate and stop by the store on the way home and buy cork….
….and bring a little bit of creativity home. 🙂
If you are all about modern farmhouse, here are some ideas to add a little bit of modern farmhouse into your own home:
- Rustic anything. The more rustic the better. You want to be authentic so repurpose items in your decor.
- Distressed wood. I have the best tutorial on how to distress wood in minutes here.
- Add a little bit of shiny. You want a little bit of hard edge in the modern farmhouse look. Think mirrors and metal and repurposed carts and angular edges on the occasional piece of furniture.
- Hang things on the wall that think outside of the box. Like this shutter wall or a bicycle wheel clock or even a clock made out of repurposed pallets.
- Keep your window treatments simple. You can make them out of sheets or even just simple linen curtains.
- Add layers of texture to a room.
- Elements of farmhouse style include natural materials, repurposed furniture and barn wood.
- Add tufted pieces to take the hard edge off of the modern design.
The key to modern farmhouse is to keep it authentic and real. Repurposing found items and add vintage pieces along with distressed and worn and timeless pieces makes the design feel timeless and cozy all at the same time.
I hope you enjoyed both tours and discovered a little modern farmhouse inspiration along the way.
