“At KWD we’ve fallen head-over-heels with a modern farmhouse style, so much so that I chose this aesthetic for my own home renovation – Beechwood. This aesthetic balances comfort, simplicity and modern influences in perfect harmony, blending old and new in masterful ways. Modern farmhouse takes the best of rustic, industrial and contemporary styles to create a sophisticated look without feeling pretentious or unapproachable. Instead it invites you to kick back and relax in comfort. I love it!”
We have searched and researched the most inspiring images, curating photographs from Pinterest, Houzz and the most exciting designers around the world, to help you shop your style.

Kate loves gates. Having a statement gate creates an atmosphere and a promise of what lies beyond. Be creative with the design and make it a reflection of the interior of your home.
Paint the exterior in crisp colours like black and white, and choose a farmhouse palette for the interior - sage greens or buttermilk yellows – with white as a backdrop. Add interest to walls with white wood panelling, shiplap and strapping.
Mix furniture from different eras for a lived-in look and add texture with leather, cushions, rugs and throws. Incorporate new and old pieces – contemporary mirrors with a rustic antique side table, coach house lights with abstract chandeliers and a blend of vintage chairs and modern bench tops. A farm kitchen table and a kitchen island bench are a must.
A wood fire is a must to create that country farmhouse feel, but the style can be ultra-modern. A shiplap surround works a treat. A stack of firewood looks amazing too.
Install barn doors leading into a bathroom or a Dutch door in the laundry leading outside, painted in contemporary colour with sleek industrial handles.
Industrial black window and door frames add definition and epitomise the modern farmhouse look.
