Farmhouse style is all about rustic decor, primitive accents and going back to our roots. Like a photo from the past, this room exemplifies all that is charming about the perfect farmhouse; take a look below as we break down each element.
The drop leaf wood table beautifully takes center stage in this room, and is surrounded by simple slat-back chairs that have distressed surfaces and a well-loved appeal. They feature a similar finish, but could vary in design for a mismatched look brought together by the rustic, minimal aesthetic.
Large Armoire or Hutch
Also wood, this hutch could be used for storing linens, table settings and so much more, and its large stature fills the room with primitive appeal. This is a practical furniture piece because you can display items on top and have decorative storage space for many of your things in a dining room, bedroom, kitchen or hallway.
Did you notice the onion lantern and candlesticks near the hutch in the back of the room? These are perfect for creating the farmhouse look, in addition to bringing extra light to a room.
Rustic Wall Art
Folk art designs and country landscapes complement the rustic contents of the room, especially if the wall art itself is crafted out of wood, features a warm patina or is a historical reproduction.
The wing-back chair was historically used to protect the sitter from drafts and to keep the heat from a fireplace around the seating area. They may serve the same purpose in some homes today, but this elegantly designed chair also adds notes of formality and decoration to any space. In the room above, a large pattern covers the upholstery, which enhances the beauty of the wooden legs and traditional appeal of the other furniture. Large area rugs also adorn the room in pattern and folk art color, protecting the beautiful hardwood floors and adding an extra element of comfort underfoot.
