The modern farmhouse décor style has seen a resurgence in recent years. Visions of loungey and lofty spaces with pitched roofs, reclaimed beams, deep cozy sofas, and small antique pieces are enough to make each of us want to buy a cabin in the woods and retreat from city life forever.

Maybe it's the Nancy Meyers movie frenzy that has given us a permanent craving for perfectly accessorized neutral spaces with loads of dimmed lighting and chunky knitted throws. Maybe it's simply that in the hectic world we live in, we need a space to escape (metaphorically, at least).

But how do you achieve that perfectly curated modern farmhouse look at home? Where do you start to feel like you're coming home to a Nancy Meyers movie set every night? To give you a kick-start, we handpicked our favorite textural neutral décor accents to help you achieve the modern farmhouse décor look. Get ready to start sipping tea on weekends while lounging in your camel cashmere pajamas. This is exactly how to get the modern farmhouse look.
