5 Great Modern Farmhouse Living Room Decor Ideas

A living room is one of the most important spaces in the home. It’s the place you go to relax after a long day, spend time with family, and create memories. Whether your relaxing in the living room or entertaining guests it’s nice to have a cozy living room space to enjoy. Knowing where to start with decorating a living room can be challenging though. Let’s go through 5 modern farmhouse living room decor ideas to help get started with decorating a living room space.

Add a Rug

Adding a rug to a living room space can help to create the cozy warm feel you might be going for to make it a relaxing space. Rugs also help to tie in some of the colors in your living room as well. When it comes to picking the right size rug for your living room space you’ll want it to be big enough for all the furniture. This means that you’ll want the rug to be large enough to at least have the front legs of all the furniture pieces on the rug. This helps to pull the whole room together and make it one big space.

Hang Artwork

You definitely don’t want all the walls to be completely bare. Adding artwork to the walls in the living room will help to create a cozy home vibe. I love abstract art pieces for living room walls. Artwork can be a great way to add a little pop of color to a living room space too. If you’re going for more of a neutral color scheme adding subtle colors such as blues or greens with artwork can be a great way to add just a little color while still making the room feel neutral.

Install Lighting

In my opinion, lighting can be one of the most underrated decor pieces. It can add such a statement for the decor and really transform the space. Finding a beautiful fan or statement light fixture is perfect for a modern farmhouse living room. Pick a finish that goes with the other hardware throughout the house. You can always mix two finishes if you’d like just make sure you carry the two finishes throughout the whole house. Personally I love the look of black or brass for light fixtures in a modern farmhouse living room.

Add Greenery

I love the natural feel and color that greenery adds to a space. Whether there are faux plants or real ones, plants add a nice accent to any space. Anytime there’s some added space that you need something, but you’re not sure exactly what – consider a plant. A lot of the times plants can look great almost anywhere in the home and help to decorate the space beautifully.

Consider a Gallery Wall

The living room is the place you want your family to gather after a long day and entertain guests. Why not highlight that in the space? I think a gallery wall is perfect for a modern farmhouse living room. Whether it be on a small wall with 2 columns of picture frames or a large statement wall with 3 – 4 columns of pictures it’s a great way to show off those family photos. This will tie into that warm home feel by having those family photos showcased on the walls.
