The Cottage Diaries: Modern Farmhouse Living Room

by - Tuesday, October 13, 2015

With the cottage sofa ordered, I've started to refine the look I want for the living room area. I find myself moving into a modern farmhouse kind of feel. It doesn't help that it's fall and I'm mad about plaid. I want that classic pattern everywhere and it fits really well with the farmhouse look.

This look is all about rustic textures and familiar patterns. I started with a base of black and white and layered in touches of green and blue. The cottage is by the lake in the countryside so I plan to repeat the blue and green throughout the spaces. I didn't want to veer too far with a "country" look so to make it modern I've chosen some accessories with cleaner lines and we'll play with pattern, making it overscale or pairing luxe with minimal.

I'm crazy over those Etsy pillows. The typography on the Apples pillow is crisp and modern and the Schumacher black and white floral pillow is just gorgeous. I love this cow painting (though I just might move my beloved pig painting out to the cottage). And can you believe that coffee table is Ikea? Really loving their products lately.

Are you a fan of the farmhouse look? It seems like everyone is moving out to the country lately.
