How to decorate a modern farmhouse living room?
There are a few stylistic tips, which set the farmhouse style apart. They are quite unique and easy to follow. The good news is that if you want to experiment you can combine the farmhouse interior with pretty much any other style – rustic or even industrial farmhouse decor. Whichever way you choose to go, the one thing that you are going to get is very cozy and homey feeling in your house.
Farmhouse living room decor with a modern fireplace
Fireplaces are a must when it comes to farmhouse interior. They serve as the focal point of the house and the whole living room is arranged around them. For a modern twist add a brick or stone fireplace wall, which will be the accent of the entire room.
Having a fireplace at home brings so much warmth and coziness
Light neutral colors are what sets this style apart. Your living room needs to be as light as possible. Use darker colors as accents – cabinets, bookshelves or even carpet or throw pillows. This will make the room feel larger, but the infusion of little touches of color here and there will give it lots of character
Infuse some color through your furniture, but keep the walls in light, neutral colors
Farmhouse living room decor with wooden touches
Exposed wood beams are something that you will see very often in any farmhouse decor. Wood always provides coziness and warmth to your home. This non-traditional way of using wood, however, is also super modern and trendy. Wooden floors are also a must!

Experiment with fabrics
