Decor Elements to Easily Create FarmHouse Style


Farmhouse style has evolved over the years, from a lifestyle of necessity to a chic way of living that focuses on simplicity and heritage.  Recycling, upcycling and renovating are all a part of Farmhouse style.  But you don’t have to live in a fabulous old farmhouse to create a country feel in your space.  I’ve pulled together some of my favorite ways to help you create a space with rustic elements and a nod to the past.

I don’t think there is anything more quintessentially farmhouse than a farmhouse sink.  Big and deep, the just the thing to wash produce, bath children and anything else!  One of my favorite farmhouse style sinks is the Blanco Fireclay Sinks featuring Blanco Cerana, the perfect blend of durability and versatility, perfect for your traditional or contemporary kitchen.

Wood beams are an easy and inexpensive way to create a rustic interior. Albeit a permanent change and one that requires some heavy lifting and technical know how beautiful wood beams add character and warmth to any space.  A strong architectural feature beams draw the eye to the ceiling, accentuating vaulted ceilings or allowing a room to appear larger than it is.




Anxious about messing with the ceiling?  Not to worry, bead board or wainscoting are easy additions to any room and instantly create a country feel.  Paired with a classic iron bed layered with cozy textiles, comfy duvets, textured throws and extra blankets creates a warm and inviting guestroom.

Nothing says country or cottage like patchwork quilts.  While layering them on beds and sofas is an obvious choice, why not use one as a tablecloth?  Unexpected and instant texture and appeal.  Bold fabrics in primary colors also help to accentuate a lived in, cozy feel.  Bold patterns add depth while creating a space that is rustic, while still modern.

The artwork is a great way to accentuate a theme, think country landscapes and rustic architectural elements, like these shutters to offer texture, warmth, and character.

When looking for farmhouse inspired decor elements, flea markets, and vintage stores are your best friend.  Rustic furniture pieces and vintage elements instantly add character and a sense of history to your space.  How amazing are these washboards?

And finally, because farmhouse style has an element of resourcefulness implied, DIY projects are a natural fit.  Two of my favorites are creating an apron front sink in a fabric such as toile and replacing the glass in the doors of an armoire with fabric.

What is so lovely about Farmhouse style is that it doesn’t have to be an all-encompassing look, little elements here and there create an overall effect that is warm and cozy.
