Farmhouse decor is very popular now for home decor, it’s very cozy and it’s a more elegant idea to rock instead of pure rustic. Decorating your rooms this way can be a great way to rock the farmhouse decor for Christmas too. This style features buffalo check and plaid, lots of wood, natural decor, and mostly neutral or monochromatic color schemes, although you may see some bright accents. How can you stylishly incorporate all of these elements into your holiday decoration? Just take a look.
Colors and prints
Opt for neutral colors that are characteristic of farmhouses and are very popular for decoration overall. Skirt monochrome – gray and white or black and white and add bright plaid accents if you feel like it. Bring prints – stripes and buffalo check are characteristic of the peasant style. Embellish the room with textures to avoid an appearance – use natural wood and plywood, faux fur, knits and crochet and other things for this.
Christmas trees and evergreens
A Christmas tree or some mini-trees are a must for every vacation space. To create a proper farmhouse feel, prefer a snowy or flocked Christmas tree, decorate it with lights, and you can skip the ornaments or use different baubles in neutral and metallic, or some rustic ornaments such as buffalo plaid ornaments. Add snowy or flocked evergreen wreaths and garlands to keep your space really charming.
Generate coziness and add cute natural accents here and there – put up baskets and buckets of firewood, add printed blankets and pillows to make the rooms cozy, use lights, candles in candle lanterns and candlesticks and marquee lights for a decent retro feel. Add fresh green garlands and hang ornaments not only on the tree but elsewhere as well. Enjoy!
Ah, French country style is pure charm! These refined yet shabby pieces of furniture, these neutral and pastel-colored, adorable vintage accessories and the rustic cosiness have captured hearts all over the world at the same time. If you love this style but don't know how to apply it to your interiors, this round up will help you. Let's take a look at how to decorate a country style French kitchen.
Neutral colors are the best choices for this style: white, off-whites, light gray, beige and other shades form the basis of this style. They look soft and elegant and visually expand the space - so many advantages in one! Another idea is to add pastel colors, the colors can be different, this is a very popular idea for female spaces.
Prefer vintage and shabby chic furniture and if you don't have it you can just take some furniture and turn it into shabby chic pieces - sanding on whitewashed pieces isn't difficult. Try natural wooden table tops that provide rustic comfort. A shabby chic style glass cabinet will not only highlight your dishes, it will also give your kitchen a sophisticated look.
Don't forget that the French country style is a bit rustic anyway, so you should add a few details to this style as well. Vintage kitchen utensils, wreaths, cutting boards and bread bowls help you create an ambience.
