Modern Farmhouse Style

warm whites


To keep things from reading too woodsy and dark, Barbara Drobnyk favors bright white walls for a clean, crisp backdrop that glows come sun, clouds, or snow. Then, she tones it down with layers such as:

SHIPLAP. Paint it the same white and let the lines add texture and dimension.

NATURAL WOODS. Use salvaged barnwood in pale tones on floors, doors, and beams for contrast without visual heaviness.

THE RIGHT RUGS. To anchor a light neutral scheme, select vintage, softly patterned rugs for a mellow look. Mix various sizes for just enough color and lots of warmth.
