This week we're continuing our series on the Modern Farmhouse design style by featuring some of our favorite photos of bathrooms in this style. In the bathroom, this style is still characterized by neutrals with black and wood-tone accents. Shiplap (a rough-hewn wooden paneling often used in barns and older homes) reigns supreme in this space! You also tend to see a bit more of the industrial touches brought to the forefront. Take, for instance, the picture perfect poured concrete sink paired with oxidized zinc overhead sconce in the above photo from our #urbanfarmhouse project that was featured in the last post.

You can also find some lovely vintage and antique touches in Modern Farmhouse styled bathrooms such as this lovely claw-foot tub in the above photo designed by the Queen of Shiplap, Joanna Gaines from HGTV's Fixer Upper. The antique tub with the ruffled shower curtain, marble vanity top, and diamond-paned window provide a stunningly soft and feminine contrast to the rougher and more masculine qualities of the exposed shiplap accent wall, wood grain tiles, industrial wire hamper, and raw wood-framed mirror.

The below photo from Studio McGee is an incredible example of rich contrast. By pairing this black basin sink with the industrial iron-framed round mirror in an otherwise neutral space they have created the ultimate Modern Farmhouse bathroom. To top it off with white board and batten walls, white tile set off by the charcoal grout, and a touch of warmth from a light wood stool...simply put, Bravo.

A more subtle way to add some contrast and a touch of an industrial quality to your Modern Farmhouse bathroom design is through the use of oil-rubbed bronze or black hardware and accents as pictured in the below photo from Jamie Nesbitt-Weber Interior Design. The matte black faucets make quite the impact against the white walls and carrara marble while the exposed wood vanity base grounds the space and gives it more of that homey quality that you want in a Modern Farmhouse bathroom.

The below photo from local designer Lauren Liess provides a slightly different take on the Modern Farmhouse bathroom compared to what we have shown previously. Here they are going for a more subtle, polished approach to the industrial accents by making them white, silver, or an antiqued brass rather than the black that you tend to see in this style. Meanwhile, they chose to bring the black contrast in by adding a matte black counter to the delightfully unique but traditionally styled back to back double vanity.
