Modern Farmhouse Living Room for Just $1200!

Hi Friends! This is Kristin from Postbox Designs, Interior E-Design and I’m back this month with another exclusive Mood Board just for you Remodelaholic readers! When working with my own clients I deal with a huge range of budgets from low to high, but one thing all of my clients want: a Living Room that is beautiful, functional, and comfortable. No one wants a room that looks pretty but isn’t condusive to real life. So today I’m going to share with you a Modern Farmhouse Living Room Mood Board that is not only beautiful, functional, and comfortable, but hold onto your hats people….it is only $1200 for a complete room. Everything you see on this Mood Board (and I’m including multiples of some of these items to create an actual functional Living Room design) you can get for just over a thousand dollars.

Want to find out how? I’m sharing my best budget friendly designer finds and sources to create a Modern Farmhouse Living Room you can have ordered by the end of the day!

I’ll share where you can find these budget friendly gems, but first let’s check out some eye candy.

Choosing the Right Budget Friendly Farmhouse Living Room Pieces

Comfortable & Durable Affordable Sofa

I have three kids myself so I need a sofa that is going to work for those beloved movie nights-something that is comfortable, snuggly…but also durable and easy to clean. I actually own this sofa (in the sectional version) found on the Mood Board and I have found it to be all of the above! The light tan is bright and airy, and best yet is slipcovered so you can take it off and wash. It has held up beautifully and is oh, so comfortable. And best yet-you can buy the sofa AND slipcover for under $400. I would highly suggest picking up a second cover.

Farmhouse Throw Pillows

This whole Farmhouse Living Room Mood Board has a light and airy feel to it-the dusty blue striped pillows, the light gray hex pillows, and that charming tassel pillow bring so much texture and pattern to the room. Everything is fairly neutral and the patterns lean towards a Modern Farmhouse look. I actually own these blue striped pillows and I will tell you they are worth every penny-beautifully made and looks much more high end than their price tag.

If you want a more rustic Farmhouse look, try a similar look to the Living Room by Twelve on Main:

Rustic Farmhouse Coffee Table

The beauty of a rustic coffee table is it is already broken in! I love using rustic, slightly beat up pieces because any abuse you might give it, just adds to it’s beauty. And it blows my mind you can grab this farmhouse coffee table for under $50.

Modern Farmhouse Décor on a Budget

When you are working on a tight budget for your Farmhouse Living Room, I love to hit up places like HomeGoods, Wayfair, and Target. Look for matte black pieces, glass vases (like the $20 Target vase on the Mood Board), and light colors such as whites, grays, ivories, and creams.

Budget Friendly Art

My #1 Source for budget friendly artwork is always, always Etsy. I love the immediate gratification of Instant Download prints. You can grab beautiful, custom, unique artwork for just a few dollars. This “Gather” print is under $6! Print yourself and frame in an inexpensive frame (or make your own frame).

The “Perfect” Rug

Okay, I know nothing is perfect, but this chunky jute rug from the Mood Board is pretty gosh darn close. Natural fibers like jute or sisal work perfectly in a Modern Farmhouse Living Room. But best yet, they are durable, hide a myriad of stains, and dirt, and are surprisingly comfortable. While I rarely select the same items for multiple clients, this is one of the few pieces I have used again again…I even have it in my own home. And at such an affordable price, you won’t cry if someone spills their grape juice on it. I’ve had mine for over two years and my three children and beast of a dog have yet to destroy it! A small miracle.

Use an inexpensive poster frame you can find for under $30, or try one of these DIY framing and display ideas for oversized prints.
