Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to live in a barn to achieve a cosy farmhouse interior. Although exposed beams and objects of rustic life add authenticity, traditional designs get a makeover in the modern farmhouse style. Buffalo checks, plaids and stripes are welcome, as well as some rural accents such as animal hide, and staples like natural cotton and linen. It's easy to cross over to Scandinavian design in this respect, so the key is to avoid stark contrasts and opt for shades of gray and warmer tones instead.
