A Contemporary Take on a Traditional Farmhouse

 

Creating a space that honors the original character of a house’s bones while keeping things fresh is easier said than done, but if anyone has a knack for the art, it’s designer Tiffany Leigh.

After living in the home for over a year with an empty living room, Tiffany’s clients came to her to put a contemporary spin on their traditional farmhouse. The result is just what they ordered — welcoming, light, and filled to the brim with charm, making you want to come right in and put your feet up.

While this home has those key elements that make Traditional Farmhouse such a universally loved style (we’re looking at you spindle-back seating, relaxed fabrics, and earthy muted hues,) the modern touches give it an edge that makes you look twice.

The Contemporary & Charming Farmhouse Living Room

An unexpected moody entryway sets the tone for the space with a painted-black fireplace, functional bench seating, and a few curated vintage finds. We love how Tiffany utilized the space here to maximize practicality with a hanging basket over the bench seating for dropping keys or other out-the-door essentials. While the expected choice might have been an entryway console table, this variation gives you a lot more function (and doesn’t distract from the fireplace focal point).

Layered lighting is key to making a living room feel inviting, and the console table behind the sofa in this space makes room for a table lamp without blocking any of the window views — genius!

We’re jealous of anyone with more than one fireplace on the same floor, and we love how Tiffany offset this one with leather ottomans and a chic cabinet filled with records, making it feel collected and lived-in. While the homeowners love antique and vintage pieces, they were worried about the space feeling too stuffy. Tiffany helped them mix older pieces with playful elements to marry old and new.

A Dreamy Textural Bedroom

The bedroom is another lesson in texture-rich, neutral-toned spaces — complete with dreamy linen bedding, a vintage-inspired rug, and end-of-bed bench seating that brings in a modern element. If you look closely, you might lose count of how many patterns have been incorporated here, from the bedding to the rug, to the throw pillows. Subtle or bold, pattern mixing always works best when you stick to a cohesive color palette, and we’re taking notes on how Tiffany does this here.

Textural Minimal Bedroom Design.

It’s always a good idea to add a seating area to a bedroom if space allows. In this bedroom, two rounded cane-back chairs and a small side table fill the window space to create a cozy corner for maximizing the area (while adding even more textural interest).
