People may be freaking out over the new Hearth & Home line from Fixer Upper‘s Gaines family, but not all of us are swooning over the shiplap, distressed wood and rustic fabric elements that make up the farmhouse style. It’s everywhere these days, and because of its ubiquity, it can make finding modern, trendy home items a lot more difficult. But if you look hard enough, you can definitely find some new items to spruce up your home.
I’m currently obsessed with dark florals, semiprecious agate accents and unique area rugs that make a big impact, doing a lot of the decorating work for me. Hey, all shortcuts are welcome! And I don’t know why anyone would settle for a boring farmhouse jug or repurposed feed sack throw pillow when there are merman snow globes and pink faux-fur blankets they could be using to accent their decor instead. These items, from whimsical to elegant, will help give your home the modern, trendy look you love — no shiplap in sight.
