MODERN FARMHOUSE Paint Colors

If you are looking for an effortless blend of contemporary design and comfy, country living, the modern farmhouse style offers endless inspiration.

Whitewashed shiplap, galvanized steel, natural and reclaimed wood, vintage—these elements and more, set in a clean, uncluttered space—are hallmarks of the modern farmhouse style.

Like many interior design styles, the backdrop for the modern farmhouse includes neutral, off-white and white, gray, and greige paint colors, with pops of color woven in. Here, our color experts share their favorite modern farmhouse colors and color combinations to help get you started.

Deep Paint Color for a Bold Farmhouse Exterior

Take inspiration from this striking modern farmhouse in Black Satin 2131-10 with white trim in Brilliant White OC-150 for classic contrast.

Other intense colors we love for exterior siding for a modern farmhouse feeling include Polo Blue 2062-10, Iron Mountain 2134-30, and Kendall Charcoal HC-166. Look for off-white colors that share the same undertone of these deep hues for trim, ceiling or interior doors: Learn more about white undertones.

Mixing Up Color

White- or neutral-painted walls spiked with deeper colors on trim or doors fall beautifully into the farmhouse tradition, while offering a fresh, graphic take. Try intriguing color combinations as seen here with cool gray Slate CW-700 on a door and mossy Nicolson Green CW-500 on the interior door frame.

A Clean and Comfortable Dining Room

A timeless hue and former Color of the Year, Simply White OC-117 provides the perfect white paint color for this modern farmhouse-inspired dining room.

“With its hint of warmth, Simply White works beautifully with rich wood tones,” says Nivara Xaykao, Color & Design expert. “Try using different sheens to add subtle dimension to an all-white room.”

Heart of the Home: The Kitchen

Contrasting colors on upper and lower cabinets gives a fresh new look to any kitchen.

In this modern farmhouse galley, the trim, doors and ceiling are all painted in Distant Gray OC-68, a crisp white with blue undertones that pairs effortlessly with strong blue colors like Kensington Blue 840.

Rethinking Chalkboard Paint

We love the look of woodsy chalkboard paint colors.

Here, Gettysburg Gray HC-107, from our Historical Color Collection adds a rustic hue besides timeless white subway tiles and industrial-style pendant lights. Other earthy colors for your modern farmhouse chalkboard wall include Pashmina AF-100, Weimaraner AF-155, and Ashley Gray HC‑87.

A Modern Farmhouse Bathroom

Crisp white wainscoting is a hallmark of the modern farmhouse look.

Here, Hardwood Putty CW-5 on broad paneling pairs well with soft Bassett Hall Green CW-480 walls. On the bathroom vanity, Slate CW-700 offers a charming touch of warm gray paint color for contrast. Plants, an antique stool and oak floors bring the countryside in.

Other greens we love for a modern farmhouse bathroom include Spa AF-435, Hancock Green HC-117, and Fernwood Green 2145-40.

Modern Farmhouse Add-In: The Barn Door

Add a sleek barn door to your home for an instant farmhouse feel. Tomato Tango CSP-1145, a cheery red from the Aura® Color Stories® collection, is a fun accent color that adds a spark of energy.

White and off-white paint are essential to the modern farmhouse style, seen here with Stoneware CSP-245 on the bathroom walls and trim. On the near wall, a deep gray Wool Peacoat CSP-25 creates a nice counterbalance to the bright red door. And slate-gray bathroom flooring contrasts beautifully with adjacent knotty pine, a modern farmhouse mainstay.
