Farmhouse is a very popular style, it is a rustic style with modern, vintage or shabby chic touches that embellish the space and that is why it is so popular. How can you achieve this style in your home? This round-up gives some tips and examples about farmhouse living rooms. Take a look around and be inspired!
Colors and materials
The farmhouse style is all about neutrals: white, creamy, beige, gray, white, brown and other and of course natural colors of wood and stone that should be present in your farmhouse – these are key materials. You can also add brick (better white or whitewashed), leather, and soft textiles to make your farmhouse living room more catchy and chic.
The furniture you use will depend on the context you want to create – is it a boho farmhouse living room? Modern or vintage? Industrial or shabby chic? If you’re into vintage and shabby chic, you need vintage furniture – just renovate some existing parts or reupholster them. If you are modern or contemporary, you need more modern furniture. Prefer neutral upholstery and white or dark furniture legs, reclaimed coffee tables and wooden sideboards.
Decor will help finish your farmhouse space, and again – use decor that suits your style. Printed or neutral pillows, soft and fluffy carpets, wooden beams (fake if you don’t have real ones), potted greens, fancy artwork, and cages for vintage decor. Watch out for lights and lamps: use sleek pendant lights or crystal chandeliers, candle lanterns, and candelabra.
