Farmhouse style is as popular in the country as it is about town, and yesterday we showed you six ways you can create the look anywhere you live.
Today we’re going to finish up the list we started yesterday with six more ideas – mix, match and then add your own, and you’ll be rolling in rural charm before you know it.
How does blacksmithing differ from the wrought-iron accents we mentioned yesterday? Here, we’re referring to handcrafted showpieces like chandeliers, sconces and lamps; statement décor that really puts you back on the farm.
Dried Herbs & Flowers
This is low-hanging fruit, so to speak, when it comes to down-home décor. Whether tied in bundles as DIY potpourri or in a porcelain vase as a tabletop centerpiece, these little accents are affordable, easy to make and have lots of uses.
Gardening Tools & Farm Implements
No one is suggesting you go out and buy this stuff if you don’t have an actual need for it outside of your décor scheme; the idea is to just kind of store your stuff in the open and let it speak to your style.
That said, there’s no shame in leaning a vintage wood pitchfork in the corner of your Manhattan apartment, should you come across one on a random flea market excursion upstate.
When it comes to trending farmhouse looks, reclaimed wood is as good as gold. The best of it is durable, has plenty of character (maybe even a little history!) and hints at an eye for eco-conscious interior design. It’s no wonder people are literally climbing the walls to get their hands on it these days.
The proof is in the pudding. That’s an old country saying that means seeing is believing, and that’s what exposed joinery is all about. Furniture with exposed joints tells you the story of how it was made, which can make for a great conversation starter when it comes to your farmhouse look.
Copper Kitchen & Bath
Whether you go for a little or a lot, copper is a staple in farmhouse style. Pots, pans, hardware, faucets, sinks and even tubs – it all gives you a country kick that’s hard to replicate with other materials or finishes.
