How to Bring Modern Farmhouse Style to Your Home: Part 2, Color

It’s no secret that color sets the whole mood for your place.

So what colors best complement the different textureswe discussed incorporating in part 1 of our modern farmhouse style how-to series?

While it can be tempting to go hog-wild with the broad spectrum of colors available in every home improvement store these days, our rule of thumb is to keep it simple. Keep it neutral. Keep it light.

BUT, that said, in certain areas, and in small doses, strong colors can do wonders to accent your individual modern farmhouse style.

In general, the shades you choose should create a warm, cozy, inviting environment to live, love and hang in with your family and friends, right? A calm, soothing palette does exactly that. Plus it sets the perfect backdrop to allow your beautiful furniture, rustic decor and unique architectural structure to shine.

To help you navigate the sea of colors available out there, we’ve listed some of our favorite ones for you to hone in on and mix and match in your own farmhouse:
