Farmhouse style is a mix of materials like wood and galvanized steel and other natural textures. Oftentimes materials are rustic and worn. You'll often see cream paired with other neutrals plus patterns like buffalo plaid. Farmhouse style often incorporates flea market and thrift store finds into the mix.
If you're a HGTV fan, like me, and you loved to watch Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna, then you may be a fan of the farmhouse style. Chip and Joanna showcased this style on their show and helped make it one of the most popular home styles today.
A modern farmhouse style has the same natural textures and colors as a typical farmhouse style and the furniture has clean modern lines.
