TREND ALERT – MODERN COUNTRYSIDE IS IN!

WHAT’S TRENDING?

One of the BIGGEST transitional trends that you are going to see this new year is that of Modern Countryside. Y’all let me start by saying – I love it! I have to be honest, I enjoyed the farmhouse trend, but I felt like it just wasn’t permanent enough for my taste, and with countryside chic – I am getting the best of both worlds! Modern Countryside is literally farmhouse but at the NEXT LEVEL. It takes the older European/English styles, and vintage pieces, mixed with neutral-toned florals, and beautifully luxurious materials, and the best themes of farmhouse (like wood, light materials, light colors, exposed materials, and all-around casual) but mix it with luxury AND modern- and wow – you get this amazing countryside trend! Actually, I keep calling it a trend, but I don’t think it’s your typical trend that we’ve seen in the last few years. Modern Countryside is actually here to stay, and you’re going to see it throughout this entire decade – because it’s more than just a trend – it’s an informality!

To master this look – it’s kind of starting with farmhouse elements, but then going one of a few ways. You can go all Victorian countryside, and really bring out the older, natural look, or you can go modern countryside and do a patterned tile, with gold elements! Listen, although hard to distinguish in words- there’s definitely a vast variety of looks out there! Some decor elements that you may see are archways, exposed brick, natural colored tile, minimal amounts of pattern, but when there is a pattern it is grand and sets the room, natural earth-toned colors, and detail within all the elements. But what makes a room modern countryside are these key features: simplicity, mismatching of materials, colors and elements, imperfections and informality – relaxed, unofficial, without a specific trend, practicality, patterns (but not too many), minimal accessories, and all together, a warm and cozy vibe.
