Farmhouse Style

Although farmhouse style has been around for a minute now, it still is going strong. Just take a look on Pinterest for proof! The rustic and traditional aesthetic definitely appeals to folks across the country and we don’t see it going away any time soon.

However since the style has been popular for a while, we have a few recommendations to make the look feel modern and fresh. It’s time to throw out the burlap and bring in lovely and light additions. Read ahead to see a few tips to give new life to your fun rustic space.

1. Sweeten Your Seat

Want to update your entryway? Add a farmhouse flair with some vintage found objects, intriguing textiles, and summery hats.

2. Blank Backdrop

We love warm rustic pieces and textiles, but they look even better off-set against a clean and minimal backdrop. Try painting your walls and ceiling white to maximize the light in your space.

3. Pick A Palette

Have a unique element to your home like a colorful vintage door? Create cohesion in your space by choosing textiles and pieces in a similar hue.

4. Play With Symmetry

A space that’s too symmetrical can feel a bit boring. Give your room some intrigue by accenting walls with fun art or a coat of paint.

5. Modern Rustic

Just because you like farmhouse style doesn’t mean you can’t have modern shapes. We love how the cowhide rug gives this modern dining set a rustic edge.

6. Safe Haven

Want to give a farmhouse edge to your bedroom? Choose cozy furniture pieces and soft textiles while accenting it with rustic pieces that still maintain a calm environment to rest your head.

7. Comfy Cool

While we love a great coffee table in reclaimed wood, why not try out a large upholstered ottoman instead? Those soft edges are perfect to make your space more family friendly as well.

8. Lighten Up

Thinking of putting some shiplap on your walls? Choosing an option in lighter wood hues can make your home feel fresh and also works with a variety of decor styles if you want to change it up in the future.
