Finding The Right Color Palettes For Your Farmhouse Style Home
Now that you know what farmhouse style is, it’s time to find the perfect colors for your home. It is important to remember that these are only our suggestions and you can always try to incorporate your favorite color into your own home. After all, the farmhouse style is known for its versatility.
The Neutral Colors – Back to Basics
Neutral colors are the best at being the foundation color in your farmhouse style home. If you look for farmhouse style ideas online, you will see most of the interior designs are in either white, cream, or grayish color. The neutral usually goes well with all other colors that are used as accent furniture or wall decor. This is why these colors are usually chosen as the foundation for modern farmhouse style.

A white or cream color is probably the most popular color palette you see in a typical farmhouse style home thanks to its versatility. A pure white is usually used on shiplap and trim to create a highlight for a room. It can also be a wall color to create a bright blank ‘canvas’ for your room.

The Warm Tone Colors – Catch The Light
The warm tone palette includes colors with a red or yellow undertone to them, like pale yellow, blush pink, pale coral, beige with a yellow undertone. These colors are usually bright and light-catching, what farmhouse style is all about.
Just like a neutral color, using a light warm tone color on the walls is a great harmonizer to make other colors pop in a room. Blush pink painted walls can create a warm and loving feel to a room. While pale yellow will add an energetic and optimistic look to your home.

Vibrant warm tone colors can give a striking and bold look to your home if used as an accent color. When used as a decoration like a canvas print, flowers, or a fruit bowl, they can be a splash of color that is added to your beautiful farmhouse style home without taking away the seamless look and feel.
The Darker Colors – Add The Contrast
The darker colors on the spectrum are not usually used for a typical farmhouse style home. But in a modern farmhouse style home, you can add a bit of darkness to a room, together with the light colors, they will make your room stand out with the contrast between light and dark colors.

A darker gray creates more contrast for your home and adds a modern twist to your room. A darker gray with yellow accent furniture and wall decor is a trend coming in 2021. And if you have a lighter colored floor, darker gray is a must to make your room feel less washed out.

A darker color like navy blue can give a more sophisticated and contemporary look to your room without losing its calming and relaxing factor. A dark cool tone color in the bedroom can give a cozy feel to it as well and make you feel more comfortable. Or you can paint your cabinets in the kitchen a darker blue or green and complete the room with white painted walls to offset the darkness.

Accessories to Go with a Farmhouse Style Home.
Farmhouse decor is all about practicality and simplicity. There needs to be a balance between old and new to keep the look clean, warmhearted but not outdated. This is why many furniture or decorations of the modern farmhouse style consist of old rustic items and a modern style item that goes with it.
