What is Farmhouse Modern?

I love this new "farmhouse modern" look. Even more than that, I love how this look is being interpreted in kitchen design. For all of the years we've spent "cabinetizing" our kitchens, this unfitted look is a breath of fresh air, where there are minimal rules and maximum opportunities for creativity and uniqueness.

For more on this kitchen, belonging to Canadian design icon Lynda Reeves, click here.

Another impressive take on modern-meets-farmhouse design by the folks at Canadian House & Home magazine. For a complete tour of this unique beauty, click here.

This white-on-white-on-white cottage kitchen was featured in House Beautiful. The unfitted furniture style cabinetry isn't for everyone, but I love it, and think it is an appropriate choice for a home that was built in the 1880's. Read the interview with designer Myra Hoefer (and check out the rest of this fabulous home) here.

This kitchen by Bulthaup brilliantly re-interprets the farmhouse style table as a stainless steel work center. Love the wood floors and ceiling detail as well.

Any thoughts? How would you define Farmhouse Modern?
