Modern Farmhouse Interiors by Bria Hammel

Nothing says home sweet home better than a cozy farmhouse! And since the defining characteristic of the farmhouse aesthetic is comfort, it’s no surprise that many of today’s top designers have been looking to this beloved style for inspiration. Modern Farmhouse style is known for its warmth and simplicity, characterized by natural textures, a neutral color palette of brown, white and black with pops of color, and embracing nature indoors.

This post features modern farmhouse interiors created by Interior Designer, Bria Hammel and her design team. Bria is the Creative Director and CEO of Bria Hammel Interiors, the CEO of Brooke & Lou Home Decor and Co-Creator of Hammel House & Co. She leads a fresh, talented team of women who are dedicated to designing beautiful, inviting homes for clients. For Bria, every project is about creating a home filled with surprising, thoughtful spaces that lead to unexpected moments. She has an incredible eye for detail and has a passion for designing spaces that tell her clients’ stories.

Bria and her design team have always been drawn to vintage details, but this year their focus is on bringing in a vintage touch beyond accessories alone through specific elements such as pleated lamp shades, flange welts and traditional prints.

“By incorporating vintage pieces, it adds a “lived in” element to a space and strays away from spaces feeling too perfect. With the right pieces, we love how we can seamlessly blend vintage and modern elements to create a healthy balance of old and new.”

They’ve also been shifting to warm, organic textures and stains. As a rule of thumb, they aim to have a healthy balance of warm and cool, so no matter the trend, their designs never go out of style. Bria also is known for adding millwork to high-traffic areas (such as kids spaces, bathrooms, foyers, mudrooms, etc.) as it is much more durable than sheetrock and can easily be cleaned.

Here are a few of some of my favorite interiors designed by Bria.  I hope you find plenty of ideas and inspiration for your own home!

White Farmhouse Kitchen

The kitchen cabinets were painted the same color as the walls to draw your eye up.  The over-sized light fixtures that hang over the island were then installed.  As a finishing touch a few textured and vintage Brooke & Lou accessories were brought in to  help create the collected, farmhouse feel of the home.

In order to balance the scale of the room, the light fixtures are massive, oversized lanterns chosen in a finish that would pop against the white.  The dining area has a warm and inviting design.

The dining room and kitchen open up to the main living room so it was important to tie in certain aspects of all of these spaces to have it feel cohesive (i.e. the brick of the fireplace matches the brick from the mudroom floor).
