How Jenny Marrs Gives Classic Farmhouse Decor A Modern Edge
Many designers have found ways to add a modern spin to traditional farmhouse decor, including HGTV's Jenny Marrs, who lives in an actual renovated farmhouse in Arkansas.
Marrs combines sleek, modern elements and traditional farmhouse pieces. In her kitchen, textured wood is contrasted with white marble countertops and gold light fixtures.
Marrs also adds industrial elements to farmhouse interiors. In Season 3, Episode 6 of "Fixer to Fabulous," she uses a concrete skim coating to cover old brick on a fireplace.
Antique furniture pieces can have quite ornate lines, which isn’t the best way to convey a modern style. Marrs recommends clean, simple lines and unadorned furniture instead.
