If you’re like me, you’re obsessed with watching home design shows, especially when the designers turn fixer uppers into modern farmhouse magic.

Modern farmhouse is everywhere, with its mix of rustic nostalgia and contemporary touches. And the best part is that anyone can easily recreate the look with a few simple touches. You can even put your own spin on it and go more country with roosters and cotton or more rock & roll with chrome and other metallics.

And you can get pretty much everything you need at Gordmans, which means your budget won’t have to buy the farm.

Here are a few things I picked up at Gordmans to get the modern farmhouse look in a cinch—and starting at just 4.99! BTW, we have TONS more modern farmhouse décor in stores.

  • Deck your walls with large art pieces, like a wood and chrome clock (49.99) that is the perfect mix of rustic and contemporary.
  • Stay in neutral territory with shades of white, taupe and sand. Add some comfy pillows (12.99-16.99 ea) to your couch, bed or entryway bench. Drape a neutral throw (24.99) over a chair to add a touch of farmhouse warmth. Cotton plant décor (wreath 12.99; hanging sphere 6.99) is huge right now and brings the outdoors in.
  • Metal and wood décor, like a tin watering can (9.99), a slatted shelf (14.99) and metal framed chalkboard (14.99), is an easy and inexpensive way to add rustic charm.


  • Add a pop of color with a cute topiary (4.99), decorative balls (12.99/set) and vintage style canisters (7.99 & 24.99).


The idea is to keep the design minimalistic and cozy. Start one piece at a time or go full-on farmhouse—it’s completely up to you. Don’t forget to show off your affordable modern farmhouse looks by posting pics with #gotitatgordmans!
