There is no denying that Farmhouse Style is huge. And by the looks of it, it’s here to stay for a little while longer. I hesitate to call it an interior design trend, as it really is more of lifestyle. A way of living that focuses on simplicity and heritage, with a strong penchant for DIY, up-cycling, nature and the land.
So today I’m sharing the key elements of Farmhouse Style.
Old worn wood adds warm and history to a space. It works beautifully in flooring, a kitchen island or in accent pieces like cutting boards and bowls.
Shiplap is a wall treatment that is timeless and a great way to add interest to a space. I simply love the look of white shiplap, but it can be quite striking left raw or given a modern twist by painting it black or navy.
Patterned Cement Tile
Beautiful patterned cement tile adds a natural, old world feel to a space. In particular black and white tile offers a nod to the past while adding a modern touch.
Exposed beams have the allure of age and the softness of a natural element, while bringing texture to ceilings. Embracing and highlighting them creates an effortless farmhouse look, rather than a kitschy one.
Exposed brick is a charming historical element that adds warmth and character to a space. While I love the look of it in it’s natural state, painting it out can create a more modern esthetic.
In any given room lighting is a great way to set the theme and feel of space. When it comes to Farmhouse Style, industrial fixtures like iron lantern pendants or metal domes are the go tos.
