If you're anything like us, you probably like more than just one style of design. While this is great for inspiration, it can make things a little challenging when deciding how to style your own space. Luckily, like flavors of ice cream, many design styles blend well with one another so you don't have to feel tied to one look for the rest of your life.
In fact, mixing and matching two of your faves can result in something even better, like modern farmhouse. From contemporary light fixtures to distressed finishes, there's no denying that on-trend decor pairs beautifully with a warm aesthetic. But don't take our word for it, here are 10 modern dining room ideas that look decidedly farmhouse.
1. Incorporate farmhouse staples.
2. Embrace clean, neutral hues.
3. Keep it casual.
4. Bring in vintage-inspired pieces.
5. Simplicity is key.
This modern farmhouse dining room designed by Sita Montgomery is lovely and uncomplicated with a hint of boho thanks to a woven bell-shaped light fixture, natural materials, a patterned area rug, and a live edge dining table. It can be effective to decorate with accents that are as simple as they come.

7. Mix materials and finishes.
Don't be afraid to incorporate a variety of finishes and materials in your dining room. This space captured by photographer Chad Mellon does just that with a bronze light fixture, black steel-frame chairs, and a shibori bench with wooden legs.
