When decorating your home, you might lean toward a variety of styles, from classic to contemporary to mid-century modern. If you’re still looking around for what appeals to you, you might want to learn about what’s out there, including the farmhouse modern style, which has taken hold with many Windows, Walls & More customers here in West Bloomfield. Read on to learn about how you might add a farmhouse modern appeal to your home!
Achieving the Look
Farmhouse modern is pretty much how it sounds: a combination of the look of the old days with a more modern aesthetic. Picture industrial lighting over an apron sink and glossy finishes throughout a space. You’re going for inviting and relaxing, with wood accents, neutral colors, and a casual feel. Keep in mind that, even though “farmhouse” is in the name, this style isn’t the same as the “country” look that was popular years ago; this look is intentionally rich in character and as far from kitsch as it can get.
Adding Window Treatments to a Farmhouse Modern Space
As you look for the right treatment, consider those that add wood accents, natural light, and no-frills charm. For example:
- Classic, streamlined look. Cellular roller shades bring a clean look while also adding benefits like energy efficiency, light and privacy control, and easygoing charm. Sonnette® Cellular Roller Shades are available in a range of colors, including warm neutrals and whites, and they pair well with side panels or drapery for a complete, layered look that brings visual interest to the window.
- Contemporary feel. Sheer shadings can up the “modern” away from the “farmhouse.” Silhouette® Window Shadings bring an airy feel to the window and incorporate clean lines in their vanes, which diffuse and soften harsh sunlight. Plus, you can find them in a variety of fabrics to enhance your décor.
- Wood accents. The neutral color palette of the modern-farmhouse look lends itself to the pop that wood blinds bring, which can create a new focal point for a room. Parkland® Wood Blinds are a great option, with selections in various paints and stains, as well as two slat sizes.
