At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop we understand that many of our customers appreciate the charm that farmhouse styled products can bring to their home. The farmhouse or countryside theme works especially well in the kitchen, pantry, or other casual dining area because of the nature of these environments. They typically are central to activity in the home due to the preparing and eating of food, perhaps even fresh from your own garden or farm. Furthermore, the wooden cabinetry and or large table spaces you may have, offer a rustic appeal that will only be enhanced with this theme of decor.
Pictured above is our new, set of three Lidded Baskets & Liners. Display singularly as wire metal baskets on the kitchen counter to expose their craftsmanship. Showcase small kitchen towels or sachets above your cupboards. Or use the complementing check liners, and keep fruit or vegetables looking their best on a shelf in the pantry. The baskets with lid boast a powder coated finish, and the cotton liners are reversible to either a black or wine check.
You can’t forget the barnyard animals when decorating with a farmhouse theme. Here at SYW, we have plenty to choose from in terms of barnyard animal decoratives. From roosters to sheep and everything in between, accent your kitchen space with your favorite animal for a cohesive and personalized feel. For example, if cute little pigs are your thing, consider dressing up your wall space with our new Pig Clock (shown here to the left.)
With the appearance of wood, this pig shaped clock is perfect for any country kitchen. A distressed paint application of white, bordered in a barn red, adds a weathered appeal. Further detail includes the arrangement of faux wood sections, attached with metal nails. To show the range of farmhouse decor we have for kitchen and dining spaces, customers might also enjoy our Countryside Salt & Pepper Shakers, pictured to the right. These non traditional shakers are painted in realistic colors and are a must-have when entertaining. The table is a great forum to accessorize your farmhouse style with smaller decoratives that both you and your guests will love.
