Gaines "Farmhouse" may be on it's way out but there are some key features I think are here to stay. Lighter wall colors, mix and match cabinetry, sage greens and earth tones are just a few. Black and soft gold/brushed warm brass accents add warmth to any space. I am seeing people lean more towards adding the "clean and cozy" factor. Lots more 'minimal' feature but in warm tones.
Sleeker trimwork and less "fuss" in the details. Baseboards, door/window trim, fireplace mantels are all simpler and much cleaner. Feature walls with applied trimwork and board and batten are great ways to add warmth and drama to a space.
Windows are dressed in natural wood shades or rollers or even soft, simple fabrics like cottons or linens.
Lighter to mid-tone wood with lots of texture- caning, fluting, lots of fun graining. Oak is back - just not your typical red oak. White oak has less yellow/orange tones so it works well with gray and creamy tones.
How can you incorporate this into your home? Freshen with lighter wall colors- look at SW Natural Choice or even lighter to brighten your room. Add a new rug with navy, sage, copper hues. Add linen or cotton toss pillows and upgrade your windows with new roller shades or woven wood roman shades. New light fixtures or cabinet hardware in warm gold or sleek black are also an easy swap.
