We have a horse farm and any "farmhouse look" needs throws on the furniture to protect it from everyone's dirty jeans. Some bits of hay and shavings would make it more authentic too.

Having said that, I think this trend is popular because it's cozy and inviting. Our house has lots of wood trim, soaring ceilings and great light. That makes it a wonderful house before I even decorated. We put in soft couches and great rugs and some of the lighting suggestions in this article. We love our modern farmhouse.
