Love "Modern Farmhouse" Design? 7 Easy Tips to Nail the Look!

Let us guess... you are obsessed with Magnolia Homes, Chip & Joanna Gaines, and all that is HGTV's soon-to-be-gone but never forgotten hit show, "Fixer-Upper." Those houses, all that land, and those crazy low Waco prices have us dreaming of shiplap too. But the reality is not everyone is cut out for that Texas heat!

So what can you do to add modern farmhouse-style to your home if you aren't buying a Magnolia Homes beauty?

Using some of our recent design/stage/list projects to exemplify, here are some of our favorite tips for nailing the look! We are also super excited to share with the world that our next modern farmhouse project will soon be listed for sale in Walnut Creek, CA this September! You can be sure to see most of these tips (and a few new tricks) incorporated there! Enjoy...
