Chip-and-Jo-Style Modern Farmhouses Giving Us Major Inspo
Still sobbing over the fact that Fixer Upper is over? Us too—but that doesn’t mean Chip and Jo’s favorite design style’s going anywhere. Over the past few years, we’ve seen a surge in every variation of farmhouse style—from rustic and edgy to modern and country chic—which shows that no matter what kind of home decor you like, there’s a way to make this country staple your own… plus, it has the added bonus of making literally everything extra cozy.
Open up your Pinterest board and grab some inspo from these inspiring modern farmhouse spaces ahead.
You don’t need to whitewash your whole house to get that farmhouse feel. Fashion designer Keren Craig opted for a deep midnight blue for the shiplap walls in the bedroom of her upstate New York home to create a cocoon-like space.
In this upstate New York home, the farmhouse look goes minimalist. The simply decorated dining room feature warm wood furnishings, soften with sheepskin throws and woven accents. A vintage hutch displays earthy finds collected from nature.
Careful attention to detail can also give newly renovated spaces a rustic farmhouse feel. In her kitchen, Katrina Hernandez cultivated a modern, yet rustic, feel with a black concrete sink, ikat floor tiling, and warm wooden cabinetry.
Even newly constructed homes can emulate that traditional farmhouse aesthetic. This suburban Illinois home takes it up a notch with contemporary twists: a darker accent wall is punctuated by geometric statement lights, and dark grey velvet and leather sofas are almost moody upon first glance. Classic farmhouse features like wide plank hardwood floors and white shiplap walls help balance out the contemporary look.
Is there anything cozier than a window seat? The founders of Hawkins New York created this relaxing nook in their 18th-century New York farmhouse, which features a pale pink palette—a fun twist on the usual whitewashed look.
Think minimalist, but with a twist: Herringbone wallpaper gives more attention to the unconventional sloping ceiling in this California abode—another newly built faux farmhouse—and we’re loving the emphasis on modern lights. A multitude of greys allow for cohesiveness, but the layered textures add interest.
An extensive renovation done to this 1700s Swedish farmhouse opened up many walls, allowing for an open floor plan-feel throughout and an extension of the original kitchen. Shiplap walls and ceilings give the space a true farmhouse feel, and a wood burning fireplace-oven keeps the vibe authentic.
This bedroom is overflowing with cozy cabin vibes, all in a simple monochromatic palette. Shiplap, exposed beams, and a minimalist design keep the feel rustic, while a coat of brightest white paint and crisp linen bedding create an ambiance that’s fresh and clean.
When rustic and modern elements collide, the result is a well curated space with an updated farmhouse feel—see more of this look in this restored Swedish home.
Sometimes shiplap is all you need to give any space a touch of farmhouse charm. This lovely entryway is fresh and spacious, with subtle elements that call attention to a softly rustic theme.
With vintage furniture in creams and browns, white paint helps to keep the overall feel current and bright, not tired or drab.

Antique accessories gives this rustic bathroom a glamorous, old-world feel.
A roughly hewn wood table is a must have in any farmhouse kitchen.
This bright, open space with plenty of bold color is anything but frumpy. It’s also proof that wooden kitchen tables don’t always have to remain their natural color to earn farmhouse-chic status.
Wooden rockers are great, but an overstuffed lounge chair makes this cozy sitting nook extra inviting.
Eclectic, slightly mismatched pieces are key to achieving a farmhouse feel that’s time-honored and curated—as in this beautiful bathroom with its vintage mirror and vanity.
Oh, the color! If your space is short on windows, brighten it up with bold prints. Stripes are classic, and florals are an obvious choice for farmhouse designs.
