Painted wood walls, predominantly white, are the foundation of modern farmhouse style.  The character of wood, along with the freshness of white, provide a neutral background so that combining modern elements with classic go hand-in-hand smoothly.  Often, wood beams characterize ceilings in the modern farmhouse and wood floors are the staple flooring option.

In the kitchen, an apron sink combined with modern or industrial style lighting bring classic and modern together.  Open shelving works alongside traditional cabinetry.  A farmhouse table with modern chairs or a set of wooden stools against a modern bar combine elements.
