Modern country decor is a fresh take on the world of country decorating.
It's contemporary meets farmhouse.
And it's all about the juxtaposition.
Combining the hard lines of vintage metal with the warm rustic tones of wood.
Mixing contemporary pieces with vintage and antique furniture.
It's a look that takes classic and timeless and gives it a twist.
In this alpine retreat recently featured on Design Files, contemporary wooden stools perch on rustic flooring in a room with dark navy walls and reclaimed wood beams.
Create a similar look with a contemporary gray sofa and a vintage industrial cart combined with a classic ivory area rug.
Lastly, for textiles add tweeds and checks and stripes for warmth and texture.
This kitchen featured by Residence Magazine showcases modern country at its finest.
The ornate chandelier combined with the round glass pendants against the backdrop of industrial chairs and wire racks creates a one-of-a-kind contemporary county design.
Create this look starting with industrial lighting, such as a handsome outdoor barn light, and then adding metal side chairs and a farmhouse table.
These next two living rooms from Better Homes and Gardens are a study in contrasts.
Create the look by combining an eco-friendly seagrass or natural fiber rug with a faux fur ottoman and the rustic texture of handwoven baskets.
A mirror made of reclaimed wood provides height and visual interest when mixed with simple vases and fresh greenery.
Modern country decor.
Fresh and fun and rustic and full of texture and the unexpected.
Add a little flair to your decor......with a little modern twist of country.
