My home is rustic but I want more of an updated look that farmhouse. How can I achieve that?
You can go with white and beige colors that is a clean and sophisticated farmhouse look. Check out decorsteals for inspiration. It's a site that sells "deals" (sometimes they are great, sometimes not) but there are some wonderful photos. In my opinion, a little touch of farmhouse decor goes a long way. No need to go overboard with decorations.
Just go with a nice homey contemporary feel but have at least one rustic or antique piece in each room.
