4 reasons to love the modern farmhouse style


The classic farmhouse style has been given a modern makeover in recent years and its new iteration is refined and striking.

Our latest Mater Prize Home lottery No. 313 is the perfect example of the trend at its sophisticated best, from its sleek black decor offset by warm, welcoming woods and classic stone, to the little details like farmhouse sinks and cosy interior styling throughout.

Mater Prize Home lottery No. 313

Home sweet home

The modern farmhouse style encapsulates the best of both worlds—timeless charm and contemporary allure, which is apparent in every detail of our latest Mater Prize Home. A far cry from the eclectic eccentricity of shabby chic, this trend combines the essence of comfort and elegance to effortlessly create a home that feels both inviting and sophisticated. The moment you drive up to this Sunshine Coast prize home you are greeted with a stone facade that pays homage to the classic farmhouse vibe; however, the contrast of a black exterior with a feature wall of vertical wood panelling gives it a premium upgrade. Inside, there are more elements that instantly have you feeling at home, like a fireplace surrounded by oversized leather couches that beg you to cosy up; and an 8-seater wood dining table for the whole family to gather in the heart of the home. 

Modern Country Chic

A modern upgrade on country chic

While traditional farmhouse design is rooted in simplicity and functionality, the modern farmhouse style introduces a premium and modern update. This can be seen in the use of high-quality materials, sleek finishes, and thoughtfully curated decor. Think of a country kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances (like the integrated wine fridge in our prize home) seamlessly integrated into custom cabinetry, or a bathroom adorned with luxurious marble countertops and contemporary fixtures. These modern elements elevate the classic farmhouse aesthetic, creating a space that is both refined and welcoming.

Living Room

Black beauty

One of the defining characteristics of modern farmhouse style is the juxtaposition of black accents against clean white walls and warm wood tones. This contrast adds depth and visual interest to the space, creating a harmonious balance between light and dark elements. Picture a bright and airy interior with wood flooring and sleek industrial-inspired black trimming around the windows and doors; a luxurious mudroom adorned with rich, dark cabinetry; and an enticing fireplace against a striking noir feature wall. This combination infuses the space with a sense of modern elegance while maintaining a cosy, rustic atmosphere.

Classic Details

Classic details in unexpected places

No modern farmhouse is complete without charming details like farmhouse sinks, open shelves, and subway tiles. The farmhouse sink, with its deep basin and apron front, adds a nostalgic touch while offering practicality for everyday use. In our Mater Prize Home, you’ll find them in unexpected places, like the butler’s pantry, main ensuite, and laundry/mud room. Classic subway tiles paired with open shelves in the kitchen evoke a sense of timeless appeal and simple elegance that makes the farmhouse style so homely. Elevated with a monochromatic scheme, these design elements tie together the modern farmhouse look with effortless grace.
