We're looking to transform your living space to match your country heart. That's where the farmhouse design style comes in hand. Defined by practicality and comfort, this decor style often includes raw materials and colors that are both functional and stunning. Unlike modern minimalism, you'll want to find knickknacks, antiques, and vintage decor for your living spaces.
Farmhouse decorating often includes browns, neutrals, grays, and whites complemented by various pops of accessory colors, such as vibrant yellows, robin-egg blues, barn door reds, and grassy greens. The goal is to allow your decor to take the show, so keep your walls muted for an inviting and interesting atmosphere.
Furniture and Decor
Farmhouse decor is reminiscent of vintage and family-heirloom design, stemming from agricultural families who designed with necessities and functional pieces. You want to use a variety of older elements combined with raw materials, such as antique wardrobes, wooden dining sets, exposed beams, or leather and suede surfaces. Similar to rustic design, embrace imperfection and chose furniture that looks rugged and worn. Consider upholstered chairs, tall hutches, whitewash counters, woven rugs, or bar carts. Unlike traditional furniture with extreme detailing, farmhouse furniture tends to be more simple and focus more on the functionality of a piece than its decoration.
Unlike traditional living spaces, you'll want to limit your indoor lighting by maximizing the natural light from the great outdoors. Big windows and high-ceilings are a great way to open up your country home. Mix and match a variety of textures in your home accents, such as antique knickknacks, wicker baskets, ram skull wall hangings, sliding barn doors, vintage storage boxes, wooden frames, and clay pots. Bring the great outdoors indoors with foliage, such as grasses, figs, and ferns.
