A couple months ago, I had the pleasure of working with HomeGoods again on their summer social photoshoot. This really is the best job on the planet. Shopping multiple HomeGoods stores over the course of a week and buying whatever I want to create gorgeous rooms is kinda cool. I was tasked with creating a modern farmhouse living room as well as a few other spaces. Today, I am sharing the modern farmhouse living room I created with a little look of the dining space in the background.

Kind of pretty right? I am dying for this room in my house. I kiddingly said, “do you think we could just move this space to my house?” They didn’t respond. -haha

The show Fixer Upper on HGTV is one of my favorite shows and I just love Joanna Gaines. Her take on Modern Farmhouse is amazing and of course, I searched her portfolio for inspiration.

Here is Mary and Maureen, both from HomeGoods. I am very thankful to both of these ladies for giving me these fabulous opportunities to work with them and create these amazing spaces.

A couple of things that I love about this space and were kind of out of the box thinking are the layering of lamps. I normally only add one lamp to an end table but this time I found a set of stone lamps so I decided to try two of them together. The end table was large enough to hold both of them and I liked the fact that one was large and one was small. Kind of a unique way to add character to the room.

Disclosure: Thank you to HomeGoods for letting me use these photos. Photo taken by Adam Krauth I am compensated by HomeGoods to design these spaces but not required to share them on my blog. I do because I love Homegoods and love how the spaces turned out. All opinions and words are 100% my own

  1. This space looks amazing and I love how cozy it looks.

    Love seeing the behind the scene stuff. The room looks great too!

    This room is just my style – beautiful. I’m assuming that amazing coffee table chest is from Home Goods also. I was there the other day (spent a little more than I needed to, but hey, I had a $50 gift card so that helped! I didn’t see that chest, but of course I wasn’t looking for it either. With my luck it won’t be there by the time I go again! Great job Jessica!

    1. Hey Rachel! Thanks so much for the kind comment 🙂 Every HG store has different merchandise and it comes and goes pretty quickly but they seem to restock a couple times a week so that is a good thing 🙂

  4. Rachel P. says:

    Oh, one more thing, regarding the 2 lamps of different heights – this is a great idea, because sometimes you need the taller lamp for reading, and sometimes the lower lamp just for the ambience. Super idea!

  5. I just love it! I noticed that none of the pillows on the couch match but they look so good together. Home Goods is my very favorite store. I was there yesterday just walking the aisles and daydreaming.

    Hi!! This living room/dining room is so beautiful!! Can you tell me where you got the 2 black dining chairs? They are exactly what I’ve been looking for and cannot seem to find! 🙂 Thanks- Shannon
