A Farmhouse Renaissance

Farmhouse modern is one of my favorite design concepts, so I’m thrilled with a new trend I keep seeing on the horizon: farmhouse renaissance! Lately I’ve been spotting milk bottles, wire baskets and canvas storage all over the web and can’t wait to see the trend bloom!

Below are a few of my favorite picks for every price range:

1. Crate and Barrel / 2. Pony Rider / 3. The Container Store / 4. Jayson Home & Garden / 5. Design Within Reach / 6. Wisteria / 7. Lexon / 8. Old Faithful Shop

After all, everyone needs a bit of grits, hay and wood-planked floors, yes? Happy trend-spotting!

1. Graph Clock at Modern Tribe
