Thursday’s Theme: Living Rooms We Love

Today we’re sharing a few living rooms that have caught our eye and charmed our hearts, with their farmhouse inspiration and primitive style. Tell us your favorite below!

The fireplace, mirror and built-ins really steal the show here. The warm rustic quality of the wood grounds the beautifully patterned chairs, bold sofa and brightly colored rug and curtain, so that the room maintains its farmhouse appeal while feeling light and fun. And check out those shiplap walls and ceiling!

This farmhouse living room features a clean, sophisticated look that enhances the beauty of even the practical home accents. The tray on the ottoman (we need to get ourselves that tea set!), the grandfather clock and that trunk under the window are all practical items that add personal charm to the room, rather than diminish it. The country print above the mantelpiece helps draw our eyes upwards to that cheerful ceiling; the decorators really knew how to use these colors.

Like the previous room, the one below has a small footprint that would be typical of old primitive homes, especially here in New England. In this room, however, warm neutrals are the draw. From the ceiling to the floor, this rustic inspired room is made more charming by personalized accents (on either side of the fireplace) and lighting inspired by antique lanterns.

Moving towards the more contemporary farmhouse, this vast living room is minimally furnished but in no way lacks style. The various lamps around the room help surround the beautiful upholstery and rustic furniture with coziness, and antiques among the books enhance the room’s primitive character. Our only complaint is that the settee is too far from the fireplace…

There’s no denying the primitive beauty of this living room. The fireplace wall (with hidden storage) is definitely the focal point; is there a more perfect reddish brown color than that? We are then drawn to the Shaker table to the right of the fireplace – holding that lamp – and then of course to the buffalo plaid chair! The rest of the furniture in the room (another settee, the Windsor chair, coffee table, console table) makes a solid case for acquiring timeless furnishings and sticking to the style of your home. And that hardwood floor is irresistible, of course.
