Best Modern Farmhouse Exterior Design Ideas

Simple Colors

Updated farmhouses tend to stick to a plain color palette outside. Think natural wood, bright white and deep blacks. Farmhouses tend to have board and batten or lap siding over shingles or shakes. By keeping the exterior of the house simple, you can highlight the shape and architectural features of the home.
