Minnesota Features

Lake Time Magazine and Cambria Style, both Minnesota companies, understand the power in collaboration. After all, albeit very different, that's precisely what they're built from. So we decided to team up with our summer issues to bring you the best-of-the-best in home and design.

The Modern Farmhouse is a trend-setter in itself - combining rustic and industrial with a dash of simplicity, this aesthetic spans the best of all worlds. Cambria Style's Editor-in-Chief, LouAnn Haaf, explains the elements that make the style.

"TO ME MODERN FARMHOUSE IS THE PERFECT 

MASH-UP OF FUNCTIONALITY AND STYLE."

LIGHT IT UP

Brass accents like pendant lights and goose neck faucets add a bit of luxury to the simplicity of the farmhouse aesthetic.


NEUTRAL PALATTE

A black island anchors a white and grey kitchen. Stick with natural fibers, like the woven bar stools for some texture with a luxe space.


GORGEOUS GREENS

Pine green is a lush choice for kitchen cabinets that can make your space stand out without being too over the top. Matte black fixtures, a patterned boho chic runner and Cambria Newport countertops combine perfectly for this farmhouse vibe.

CAMBRIA STONE

Beautiful and maintenance-free, Cambria stone is ideal for any space, but especially high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms. Unlike marble, it won't stain and you can choose either a high gloss or Cambria Matte finish.


OPEN STORAGE

Open timber shelves are the ideal place to display flowers, greenery, and pretty canisters, alongside more functional kitchen favorites like oils and spices.


GLAZING

I'm a sucker for graphic elements in a space and these steel-framed doors have an industrial look that modernizes and toughens up the farmhouse look. It also allows light to flow through the space.
