"Wood countertops are another option picking up in popularity that offer a great contrast while adding warmth to the space," Retzak said. Whatever materials you choose, just steer clear of having too much detail in those ele- ments. "I think part of the reason so many people are drawn to the modern farmhouse look is because it blends those clean lines and clut- ter-free space of modernism with the warmth of natural materials," Retzak said. Achieving the rustic-chic, modern farm- house look doesn't have to require a com- plete renovation that entails installing new flooring or countertops. "Sometimes it's just adding a sliding barn door to add separation between rooms, or dressing up the ceiling with some reclaimed beams or creating an accent wall with reclaimed barn wood," Retzak said. "All are great ways to add warmth and character to a room without having to redo the whole space." Furniture, rugs, pillows, throws and other home décor items are additional (and easy) ways to dress up a space with rustic charm. With more than 75 vendors showcasing unique upcycled and vintage-inspired items, Roost at Lynndale Farm, N47-W28270 Lyn- ndale Road, City of Pewaukee, is the mod- ern farmhouse fan's dream. "What's different about this way of deco- rating than what we were seeing 10 years ago is everything doesn't have to come from one box," said Roost owner Kristine Wright. "We used to pick out everything from one page of Pottery Barn. This style today is more about picking out the pieces here and there, mixing the vintage with the new, and putting them together to create the story of your home." That's not to say there aren't certain "rules of design" that still need to be fol- lowed. Fabrics that evoke feelings of life on the farm (i.e. grain-sack towels, burlap, gal- vanized metal, etc.) and upcycled objects (i.e. barn board signs, repurposed antiques and architectural elements, etc.) are in, but less is still more, so stay away from overcrowd- ing shelves and walls with too many items. As for the color palette, that remains mostly neutral. Robin's egg blue continues to be the most popular accent color, but soft yellows and greens are also finding their way into home- owners' décor, "but it's mostly neutral col- ors accented with small pops of bright pieces," Wright said. Not sure what elements or colors to mix into your space? The staff at Roost can help. We tell people all the time, 'Bring in a pic- ture and we can help you achieve it,'" Wright said. "People come here for an accent piece or a custom-made table, but they leave with inspiration."
