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
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.
9. New Directions
Alternatively, try arranging your wood panels in a diagonal or herringbone style to add a unique dynamic to your walls.
10. Bright Idea
Don’t be afraid to do something unexpected! We love these vintage industrial spotlights in this more traditionally farmhouse bathroom.
