We’ve had our eye on Instagrammer @bellwayhometorhead for some time and with over 35k followers, we’re clearly not the only ones who have fallen for her modern farmhouse style. Her use of natural textures and a neutral palette presents a wonderfully calming and cosy feel, which is complemented with beautiful rustic furniture.

The Property

Purchased in 2003, Lynn Mooney, better known as @bellwayhometorhead on Instagram, and her husband, Drew, and golden retriever, Marley, were attracted to the newly built detached property in South Lanarkshire, Scotland, because of its semi-rural location and good sized rooms. Over the years they have made significant renovations to the property, including a new kitchen, en-suite, dining room doors and lighting. The result is a delightfully inviting home with calming neutral colours and modern rustic furniture.

The Style

Modern rustic farmhouse style would best describe the overall look of the home. Neutral colours and natural textures blend with carefully selected pieces of wooden furniture, such as the wonderful rustic dining table, to create a perfectly balanced and harmonious scheme throughout.

Favourite Rooms

The kitchen/diner with its beautiful two-tone Shaker kitchen units in soft grey and off-white. The colour complements the wooden flooring and white full-length shutters on the bi-fold doors, giving the room a distinct New England mixed with the Hamptons feel. The soft faux throws on the wooden bench and basket accessories add texture, whilst the industrial hanging pendant lights over the wooden dining table brings the look right up to date.

Furniture Highlights

The refectory-style farmhouse dining table is an eye-catching piece. Lynn chose a combination of wooden dining bench and dining room chairs for seating to give a laid-back dining experience.

The grey painted narrow console table in the living room is also a wonderful piece. Styled with two large rustic table lamps, it doubles up as a TV unit with the television above. Staying in the living room, the wooden rustic coffee table with natural wood top and white painted frame matches the colour scheme of the room.
