The decor of a farmhouse is extremely popular as it is very cozy, chic and timeless and we have already shared some ideas about such a decor at home. Today I want to show you a few more ways you can decorate in this style. This summary is dedicated to the entrances to farmhouses.
Farmhouse is usually about neutrals: white, off-white, brown, gray, olive green, creamy, and other shades, all of which are mixed together or just some of them are used. You can also try adding a bit of black or graphite gray for drama – put a blackboard sign or some textiles in these colors.
So that your neutral room doesn’t get boring and cool, you can add texture here. Use baskets, jute rugs, wooden furniture, metal wire baskets, and some natural decorations to make your entryway catchy and chic.
Which furniture do you need for your entrance area? It’s up to you, but usually these are a bench, some shelves, coat racks, a console, stool, and I would recommend rustic vintage or modern styles to create the appropriate ambience in the room. Opt for stained or whitewashed furniture, weathered wooden items, and reclaimed wood to highlight the peasant style.
Accessories and decor
Complete the look with decor and accessories! Go for an entire gallery wall of signs and artwork, with your family photos – it’s pretty above a bench or console table. Add candle lanterns, jute rugs, decorative baskets and plates to add coziness to the room. You can freshen up the look with potted flowers and greens, with green wreaths and garlands, with pumpkins, leaves and other stuff.
A fireplace is always a centerpiece that makes the room cozier and more welcoming no matter where you place it, however you decorate it. Surrounding your working or even non-working fireplace with metal will give it a unique look. Metal gives the room a textural touch that creates more interest and of course it attracts everyone around you. Do you want some ideas? Let's check them out below!
Colors and textures
Metal that surrounds your fireplace can be of different colors and also of different textures. It will easily highlight your decor style or make a bold statement if that's what you want. It can be a sleek and shiny metal-clad fireplace, an aged and textured, blackened metal fireplace, and there are many more ideas - this usually depends on the style of your room, for example a sleek metal fireplace will fit a minimalist room while a aged textured copper room will be a good idea for a mid-century modern living room. You can experiment with copper, steel, and other metals and look to match or contrast with your color scheme and style.
Decor and use
Make your metal-clad fireplace great and take a whole wall with you - it will be your statement in the room. Opt for a double-sided room to separate the rooms and give both cosiness and a warm feeling. Create some built-in niches for firewood, even if the fireplace is not working, they will add coziness. Skip the mantels or leave them unadorned - fireplaces surrounded by metal are usually more laconic. Get inspired!
