I am such a sucker for the modern farmhouse style, as you already know if you have followed the blog for a while now. During my trip to Texas, I got the chance to go to Magnolia Market (a whole post dedicated to my visit here), and let’s just say I am INSPIRED! I got a lot of great ideas on how to incorporate more of a rustic touch to my quite modern home. The first room I’m focusing on is the dining room. I love a good, thick, rustic dining table paired with more modern seating options. The mix matched look is so chic! Then accent with a vintage rug, some antlers, and rustic lighting and the room is set. For the right combination, even though it seems that you would want to mix half modern with half vintage, I have found that more rustic is better- a touch of modern goes a long way!
Here are some of my favorite items to create the look:

My dream would be to update an old farmhouse. But since tackling the small feat of remodeling our kitchen a year ago, there is no way I am ever getting my hubby on board for a full remodel ever. But that doesn’t mean I can’t get ideas from the other remodels and their fantastic results! I found this great remodel on Apartment Therapy; Raina, from A Stylist’s Life, and Robert bought a 1,200 sf farmhouse that was in need of some desperate modernization. Their efforts are so impressive- and can you believe they’re only using the place as a rental property?!
