Furniture is rough and frequently unfinished, or finished with a matte, rather than glossy, surface. Think barnwood, weathered outdoor benches or old and well-loved heirloom pieces, painted with decorative details or trim.
Accessories celebrate homestyle and simple farm life, with paintings of farm animals, antique fruit crate labels, and ceramic pitchers. Recycling and repurposing harken to the frugality of farmhouse style: dishtowels trimmed in crochet make charming kitchen curtains. Antique Ball jars are perfect kitchen canisters. Antique store finds can mix with thrift store bargains, flea market treasures and everyday modern accents for an eclectic flavor.
Flooring can be wide plank boards, rough stone or stenciled wood. Walls may feature bead-board wainscoting or vintage floral wallpaper in faded hues.
Bedding is soft and comfy, with big overstuffed comforters and handcrafted quilts creating an inviting oasis.
Farmhouse colors celebrate the outdoors, inspired by wide blue skies, pristine green meadows and softly colored wildflowers.
